Pros & Cons
The Murray 22" Gas-Powered High-Wheel Lawn Mower is an affordable, entry-level, side-discharge and mulch-capable mower that comes fully assembled. It has a powerful Briggs & Stratton 500 Series engine, at 148cc with 5.5 gross of torque and a 22 inches steel deck. The mower has 7" front wheels and 12" rear wheels for added precision in handling on bumpy terrains. This gas-powered lawn mower can be manually adjusted to cut grass by a four-point, five-position height adjustment handle located on each wheel.
The Murray 22" Lawn Mower is easy to use and maneuver. It is equipped with a handle brake for quick stopping and a starter pull that is conveniently located on the handle. The starter works very well and it starts in the first time. This lawn mower comes fully assembled so it is operator ready right out of the box.
However, many users say it is hard to push since it lacks front wheel drive. Some buyers received the units with cracked wheels and in some cases wheels cracked after some usage.
Overall, the Murray 22" Gas-Powered High-Wheel Lawn Mower is an affordable mower with a good power for cutting and mulching grass. This mower comes with two-year manufacturer's warranty.
