- Mustang 750 InStart
New mower 6 weeks ago. Mowed the lawn once then it wouldn't start. Took it back to place of purchase. They said it was a clogged Air filter. (after one mow). Took it home, hard to start and it started hunting. Took it back and they sad the governor was out of tune. Took it home and it is still hunting. They told me the base was made in Australia and on the back it says, made in China. They told me the Briggs and Stratton was made in USA. The label on the mower, says, Not to be sold in USA or Canada. Searching on the net revealed that some are made in China. I was also told that the fuel was stale. (It was bought on the day I purchased the mower. If you want a Lemon, buy a Victa Mustang 750 instart. $899.
Purchased in February 2021 for $899.00.
Best mower I've owned - Honda GXV160 engine - not self-propelled.
Purchased mid 2020 - $750. Charmhaven NSW.
This is a light and easy mower to use. I have a smaller block with more technical mowing needs so I avoided the self propelled models.
The Honda GXV160 starts with half a pull and uses little fuel. The engine is faultless. It has more power than needed for my lawn. On occasion I have helped others with their lawns and it easily eats over grown lawns and leaves them beautiful on a single pass without slowing. The catcher fills when it is full but does not labour the engine or cause a stall.
The m...ulching plug is effective and I use this every second mow. No little clipping walked into the house afterwards like out last mower. The hose out plug makes cleaning easy. Alloy means no rusting on the deck.
Purchased for $750.00.
Self propelled broke first use.
Mower went well ( cuts and runs well ) until about half an hour into the first time I used it the self propelled feature stopped working. $1000 mower broke down 1st use !!! :(
Purchased in October 2020 for $999.00.
