Welcome Ivanlh,

Briggs and Strattons are the best ones and the easiest ones to work with. I used to push mow around every headstone in a 5 acre cemetery. When I had trouble with the engine, all it usually took was a screwdriver to fix it. My Dad taught me a few tricks.

We have a 154 International.

My son collects lawn mowers. He likes his Big Mows, Ride King and of course his Cub Cadet. Can't keep him off of them.
