Yard machines are known to make simple low end lawnmowers that are up to the task. But their upsides usually end there and they only deliver basic mowing functions. The same goes for this model, the 12AKC2A3766, which is a basic, lower end push lawnmower. If you are looking for a lawnmower that will do the job without having to break the bank, then this lawnmower might be useful. On the other hand, you will have to look elsewhere if you want the latest and most advanced Yard machines lawnmower. Here is what this mower has to offer;

Specifications

This Yard Machines mower has a 20-inch steel deck and is powered by a 140cc 4-cycle Powermore OHV engine. It is light at only 62.0 lbs. and being a push mower, it is very easy to push and maneuver.  The front and rear wheels all measure 7 inches further improving maneuverability. Adjust the cutting height on three levels between 1.25 to 3.75 inches for a quality cut. This lawnmower only has side discharge and does not have a rear bag or mulch kit. This could explain its low price at only $170.00. This is half the price of mowers from the Honda HRR series. Let’s further explore the pros and cons of this lawnmower;

Pros

A major advantage with this lawnmower is that it is easy to maneuver. The large 7-inch wheels and light body of the lawnmower make for a very agile push mower. A lot of push mowers are too heavy for elderly people and physically incapable persons to operate. Mowing becomes much simpler when you don’t expend all your effort on pushing the lawnmower.

Cons

As you can see, there are a lot of features not included. In fact, the lawnmower looks bare and naked. There is no rear bag, and the mulch kit is also missing. The engine is also imported and has less power making it harder to cut tough grasses or wet grass. Ergonomics have also been ignored, and basic features such as padded handles are not included. The height adjustment lever is also manual and not the hassle free one-touch height adjustment.

Final thoughts

This lawnmower although missing a lot of features cuts grass decently. The pull cord start can be a little daunting at times. You may have to pull it more than once to start it. Some guys tried using premium gas, and it starts immediately. Premium gas is a bit more expensive but gives you the convenience of a one-time start.

The handle height adjustment lever is also very easy to use meaning people of different ages (or heights) in the household can use it. The 20-inch deck also covers a large area with every sweep. All in all, this is a decent push mower with price being its main competitive advantage. If you are looking to buy a lawnmower on the cheap, then this is what to go for. However, if you want to buy a higher quality push mower you just have to dig deeper into your pockets.
