Non Existent Assembly Instructions


Bought the Victa 881889 from Bunnings today. Assembly instructions badly lacking. Handle bolt sheared off.
M8 screw for handlebar folding not long enough. I consider myself a reasonable handyman with a good set of tools.
Spent 3 hours struggling to install the handle assembly. Not good enough for $600. Will have to get bolts & nuts custom made to fix.
Managed to start it though.

Purchased in September 2020 for A$599.00.

Briggs and Stratton not what they used to be


So, the lawn mower body is awesome, sturdy, comfortable to use.

The engine however.... after 5 x 40 minute lawn mowing sessions I have:
- The plastic butterfly of the carby in two pieces, one in the air filter, one trying to get into the bore.
- The nut holding the lifter to the rocker arm was nearly off allowing the rocker to bounce all over the place.

Needles to say, the single backfire cased by the rocker not closing or opening the valve properly probably nuked the butterfly value.

If the mower struggles or powers down, stop it and take it to a mechanic.

Briggs and Stratton may need to check their torque wrench or procedure for tightening their valve train.

Purchased in January 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse.
