Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Murray 22" Gas-Powered High-Wheel Lawn Mower (Model: M22500). The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 4.00 stars, and the price range is $0.00.

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.

How to change oi

By Anonymous on May 10, 2015

just bought this, after i beat up a previous one for 16 years (used it to cut trails in the woods) this new one won't get beat up(home lawn only) so i'm confident it'll last long time. old one burns oil dry in about an hour lol, but like i said,,,i beat the heck out of, so i'll still use it in the woods

I'm sure it tells you how in the manual... If you'd bother to read it.

Buy Murray 22" Gas-Powered High-Wheel Lawn Mower from Walmart is a lemon

I bought this Murray 22" Gas-Powered High-Wheel lawn mower on July/2013 with three years' WalMart product care plan. First it works well for a few grass cuts, after a whole winter sleep in my garage, in April/2014 when I want re-use it to cut my yard grass again, it can not starting. I tried all the methods as the manual said, as change the new gas, wash the filter, etc., but still can not starting.

I filed the claim online and called the 877-968-6391, and asked them for the repair service, but the stuff told me since my lawn mower still under the manufacture warranty, and I must go to Briggs

Not sure exactly what you are looking for but the button to prime the fuel is located under the air cleaner.
