5-0 out of 5 stars Great, economical and woman-friendly
When this was delivered all I needed to provide was gasoline. It shipped with the right amount of oil, which took less than 30 seconds to pour in, and another 3 minutes to lock down the handle, fill it with gas and start it.

It started on the first pull and worked flawlessly in our 1/3 acre yard. The first time this mower used three tankfuls of gas, but this was because the grass and weeds in our lawn had grown nearly 18 inches high (we'd recently moved in). The second time I mowed the lawn I only used a tank of gas, which indicates how economical this model is to own and operate.

The self-propelling feature was good enough to allow me to handle the mower, even on hilly parts of the back yard.

The instruction book is easy to follow, the mower itself is well-packed and easy to remove from the shipping carton, and set-up was a breeze. Performance is outstanding. If I had it to do all over again, I'd still purchase this model, which is the best compliment I can bestow. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but not as advertised
I ordered this mower for the Briggs and Stratton 6.5HP (B&S) Quantum Engine and the self pacing self propelled mechanism. After waiting 3 weeks I got a 6.75 Techumseh engine and the self propelling mechanism is an odd mixture of push forward, pull back that is anything but self pacing for me. Would have been nice to state correct engine on mower and to have a better explanation about how "self pacing" mechanism works?. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

With a robust 6-1/2 horsepower engine, this sturdy little gas mower is ideal for mowing big or overgrown lawns. A single-speed front wheel drive system propels the unit forward on its own without compromising maneuverability in tight corners or turns. An innovative Triple Care feature allows users to deal with clippings in one of three ways: collect them in a rear-mounted bag with 2-1/3-bushel capacity; discharge them through a side chute; or apply as a natural lawn fertilizer via the included mulch kit. A deep-dome, 22-inch cutting deck and patented mulching blade elevate and chop clippings so they decompose more rapidly--the waste is so finely cut that it disappears into the lawn for a clean, neat look. Hefty eight-inch wheels roll and maneuver easily for less effort on your part. The nine-position fingertip height adjuster fine-tunes cutting elevation from one to 3-1/2 inches for a variety of lawn conditions. Two handles fold down for convenient transportation or compact storage. The Yard-Man 11A-435D701 comes fully assembled with oil in the carton, and is covered by a two-year limited warranty. --Mary Park ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Tractor
Great little tractor for not a lot of money. Recieved the tractor with no problems, free shipping to boot! Starts and drives every bit as well as the John Deere I've been using, yet significantly cheaper.

The "fast attach" accessory system, appears easy to use.

All in all, I'm very pleased with the purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with my new Lawn man tractor
I live in Richmond Va. Picked up my Lawn Man tractor yesterday and cut my grass last night. It is superior to the Craftsman of simular specs I just returned to Sears. Which was very unsatisfactory. As for the man that that said there was a hidden shipping fee. Thats incorrect. It ships for free. But if you want it sooner than regular delevery. There is a 9.99 extra charge. I didn't mind paying it to get my tractor sooner. And he doesn't know much about trucking company's and shipping etc. Its always the person receiving freight responsibility to unload. The trucking company's responsibility ends at the end of the trailer. A twienty five dollar extra charge for unloading. Was probably for two men to unload. [650 lbs]. And as for the lady that said she wouldn't own another Lawn Man product. Well Lawn Man is made by MTD which makes about 80 percent of all brands made and marketed in the US.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good product but lousy customer service from Amazon
Amazon states that any item over 25.00 is free shipping so I selected that option. Then was informed by the shipping company that I would have to unload it off of the truck myself. Then they stated that if I wanted a lift gate to get it off the truck I would have to pay 25.00 extra. What choice did I have but to do this as I cannot get it off of the truck by myself. Amazon misleads us by not making it a point to let the buyer know "before" checkout by using at a minimum a pop up that informs us of the issue that the buyer (us) would have to unload a 600lb+ mower off of a truck. Amazon states that the tiny link that is listed on the website informs the consumer of this but as I said it is a tiny link, almost hidden, because I am sure that if most read this link they would not purchase this item from Amazon. The irony is I was told by the Amazon customer service department that I did not choose to pay for the lift gate truck. Well guess what! There is no option in the checkout whereas you can choose this option. We are extremely disappointed with Amazon and their lack of ethics and concern for their customers for selling equipment that they should not be selling unless they have a better way of delivering heavy items to the customer. Even Walmart.com at a minimum takes it off of the truck for you! Shame on Amazon.com for conducting business in such a poor fashion.

3-0 out of 5 stars Shipping problems and unhappy with performance
Received my tractor 3 days ago. Was supposed to get it Monday but had the same shipping problems the others had as far as needing a lift gate which took an day. I guess I got off easy (at first) as I didn't get charged the $25. Got the call from my wife "The tractor is here!" I couldn't wait for the 5:00 bell to ring. Raced home, threw on my shorts, then went outside only to see the crate was half crushed, tractor was uneven, and looked like it was literally thrown off the back of a truck. Have a few nasty scratches on it too. Of course they weren't the ones that cause any $$ damage, just the ones that make you mad you never even saw your $1,300 tractor on your front lawn without being torn up on the side!

Well, I got it started easily enough and took off to mow. Ran nicely, turned well, but not a very good cut. I wasn't moving very quickly but had to practically crawl as to not have an half-cut line up the middle. Thicker areas I had to go over twice. Mind you, I have been cutting my lawn for a couple of years with a 5 HP push mower and it did just fine. Lawn was no higher than any other time I cut it. Three areas for concern..... 1. When you turn around a tree or bush you get a very poor cut. 2. Any slight dip in the yard and it scalps the lawn. 3. Anything over about the pace of walking will not give a nice cut. I shaved about an hour off of walking but for $1,309, and a 20 HP motor, I expected more. I really need to do it twice to make it look as nice as a push mower. So, other than the ease of my fat [back]not having to get a little exercise....it didn't take any less time.

ALSO....WHERE IS MY DRINK HOLDER? Before I bought it I looked at Wal-Mart at the same model, it had a drink holder. I guess I'll crazy glue a "coolie" to the bump in the fender. Not sure I made the right decision. Certainly the wrong shipping company!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Excited, at First
Ordering was a snap. Looked around for tractors for quite a while and believed this was not a bad buy. Free delivery,and right to your door, not bad. 8 or 9 days after placing the order the tractor was in my driveway, and boy was I excited. It came on a large pallet / crate. Got one side off the crate and had dillusions of driving my new Porsche. I wondered why it was so hard to roll out of the crate, the flat front tire would explain it. The tire was totally off of the rim on one side, could not just put air in it. Oh well, no biggie. Lets connect the battery and start it to see how it sounds. Turn the key and all I hear is click, click, click. Checked and re-checked the battery terminal connections. Now what, dead battery?? Got the battery charger out and charged the battery for a couple of hours. Again try to start and click, click, click. Oh well, lets charge the battery overnight and see in the morning. Meanwhile that night I decided to take the front tire off and bring to the garage and see if they can fix the flat. No problem tipped the guy a 10 and he seated the tire on the rim and filled with air. Driving back to my house I thought to myself the battery should well have been charged by now, must be something else. Took the battery out and followed the cable to the starter solenoid, tightened them up, put the battery in cranked over and to my surprise it started. Put the front wheel back on and was all ready to go for the next morning. Got up bright and early ready to mow, so excited. Looked at the front tire, flat as a pancake (only on one side!). Took the tire off again did the gas station again and had re-repaired. Put tire on again and was finally all set. Finally mowing.
The loose connections bother me quality wise, one has to wonder what else is loose. As for the flat tire, what could I do return it? The tractor does have some rattles in it (does not run like a deere). Not a big deal but no cup holder as advertised (unless I missed the cup holder operating instructions in the owners manual).
On the positive side, the engine is strong and the optional bagger is excellent. The automatic drive and turning radius are both good. We will see how this stands up to the test of time. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars huge but I got it cheap
I got the craftsman 88790, a consumers best buy although I haven't used it yet, for $650.00 brand new in a box, I'm hoping I got a good deal. it's 9hp 28" powersteering w/ headlight. from the picture, its basically the same except the hp and I got 28".

2-0 out of 5 stars Chute Control problems overshadow an otherwise good machine
The trigger control power steering devices work well, as does the 120 volt starter.However the chute directional control often won't budge, and has to be assisted, and then it won't stay in the position you selected as engine vibration will cause it to move around throwing snow where you don't want it to go.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Snow Thrower!
**************note: for those experiencing chute control problems, see my info on that below***********************
I actually own the 10.5 HP 31AE5MLG729 version of this same snow thrower. The only difference is the horsepower, as far as I can tell from reading the description and looking at the picture, and the fact that mine came with drift cutters, which you'll hardly ever use unless snow gets more than 21" deep regularly where you live, and you're unable to clear it fast enough.

The unit comes with oil in the engine, which needs to be checked frequently during the first 25 hours of operation while the engine "breaks in". It also comes with a packet of Sta-bil which is a fuel stabilizer, keeping the fuel from "gumming up" or degrading, and is enough to treat 2.5 gallons. Just make sure you don't put the Sta-bil directly into the machine - put it in the gas can when you buy the gas for the snow thrower. Also included on mine were extra shear bolts, which hold the separate blades of the auger to the central shaft, and which break apart if an obstructing object were to get into the augers, and save damaging any expensive parts. There's a handy little storage space for two of them on the handle area of my model.

Assembly is a piece of cake, but make sure you have a sturdy wrench to loosen the skid-shoe nuts to adjust them to the proper height. I had to use a ratchet wrench.

**********I also had a concern with the joystick chute controls, as the models in the store were very hard to turn. During assembly, I simply put a TINY amount of motor oil on the contact surfaces, and now the control works every bit as well as that for the Toro, which a "leading consumer magazine" reported as the easiest to use.

The machine has electric start, which means you plug a cord into the machine and the wall, push a button and voila...running engine. The engine has a two-step choke and a variable speed control (the only speed I ever bother with is the fastest). It also has the typical rubber primer, which you'd use when it's fairly cold out, and the engine hasn't been running for a while. As far as drive speed goes, there are six forward speeds, from "creeper" for really dense, wet, or icy snow, up to a fast "transport" speed. Two reverse speeds round out the drive.

I set the machine up in my walk-out basement, and to get to the driveway you have to go up stairs once outside. With a little assistance from me, and holding the handles down so the front of the machine didn't hit the stairs, this self-propelled beast went right up 5 shallow stairs! Once on the driveway, I pushed down the auger and drive controls, and we were off clearing the recent 14" snowfall. After 7 years of an underpowered single-stage snow thrower which clogged up constantly, I was amazed! The joystick control for the chute directed snow exactly where I wanted it....including OVER the street (approx 40' or so) and into the neighbor's yard! WOW. It also threw the snow directly over a shed (8' tall) I have and into the yard. I even cleared a path through the woods with ZERO effort!

After a bit of fiddling with the skid-shoe height, this thing now clears right to the asphalt, and doesn't get hung up on anything. Packed snow from the plow and snowmobiles running over the plow's packed snow? Not a problem. Simply slow the drive speed to let the serrated auger take care of the icy mess. 14" of snow? No worries-clears up to 21" deep easily.

Leery of two-stage snow throwers because they're hard to handle? Not so with this model, which has power steering. Simply grip the little trigger under the handle on the side towards which you want to turn, that wheel's drive disengages, the other wheel pushes it right around. You can even pull back on that side's handle and go right back up next to where you just cleared.

The unit does have a handy interlock which keeps the auger engaged when you let go with your left hand to change the chute direction.

As for fuel efficiency, I cleared my driveway and my neighbor's, including the packed stuff from the plow going by, plus a 300' trail through the woods, using about 1/2 of the 1-gallon tank.

Of course, nothing's perfect, and this was no exception - the chute wasn't quite adjustable a full 190 degrees as is common with the "crank" type models. Also, I had to adjust the drive speed selector...the machine was going forward in "R1", the first reverse gear. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I had the option.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the best track snow thrower
I bought my yardman thru Amazon 2 years ago and it still runs just as well with or without the electric start. It still look brand new also. I live in the northeast so I do get enough use out of it. I even do my neighbors driveway with it. The reason I got the tracks instead of wheels is because I live on a hill and I wanted to make sure I could go up and down with ease, although I probably could have saved some money by getting chains put on a wheeled model. As another reviewer said, the steering is a bonus, especially for the snow thrower with tracks. My brother-in-law owns the Honda with tracks and it cost him about $1000.00 more with no steering. Also this come with a halogen light built in, with the Honda, you have to purchase a light kit, another $150.00 but the yardman does not throw the snow nearly as far as the Honda. The specs say it will throw snow up to 40 feet. I have tried it in all conditions,blizzard, wet, light snow and the most I have ever gotten was about 25 ft. I've seen the Honda throw it better than 50ft. If you need to do a huge area, distance is an important feature. Also, newer models have the joystick chute rotation which I think is a must have. I wish they sold a conversion kit for this model. I would save a lot of time. Overall, this is a very good snowthrower and it has not given me any problems in 2+ yrs of duty, but I would definitely recommend going with a chute rotation

5-0 out of 5 stars MTD makes Sears as well as Yard Man snow throwers
I own an MTD manufactured Sears track drive snow thrower almost exactly like the Yard Man model shown here.My MTD made Sears machine is now 6 1/2 years old.I do my own service and buy MTD parts because they are the same and cheaper once you make the model number switch.You should Keep a spare friction wheel rubber and drive belt and auger belts ( U need 2 auger belts for one change ) along with a few extra shear bolts in your personal inventory.Changing all these items is really easy but you need to try this in warm weather not during a blizzard when you discover they need changing.All these items last 3-4 years of normal use.Use 100% synthetic oil in the engine it does not thicken when cold like ordinary oil.Also never fill the gas tank unless with gasoline that has fuel stabilizer added to it.I installed a Briggs & Stratton in line fuel shut-off valve, purchased for about 5 bucks, and I run the fuel out each time I shut off the machine.Mine is easy to start as a result, even without the electric start.CR has consistently rated these machines at the top of their charts for many years.They are an excellent buy, and can be maintained by any person who is handy with a set of ordinary tools.Read the owners manual, learn the adjustments ( they are moronically easy to do) and this simple machine will save you from the back breaking work of shoveling snow, and never let you down.MTD has refined the machine over the years and it works well, as CR learned when they compared ( the wheeled version) to other machines.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Rig
I have two of these for my two homes.I really love track drive snowthrowers, especially cause one of my homes has a very steep driveway, and these rigs will always go up the hill.

I recently bought a Honda top of the line track drive model and hated it because it did not have skid-steer capabilities, like these YardMan models do.The only down-side to these YardMan units is the Tecumseh engines are fairly loud and you may wish to use ear protection with them.

The grip heaters are very useful when the temperatures are very cold.

4-0 out of 5 stars Little problems add up.
It hasn't snowed yet, so I can't comment on its use, but I've tried to get it ready.

Assembly disclosed a few problems:the cotter pin that holds the discharge chute control rod together was missing, the instructions didn't match the product in some areas, and the drive clutch control was mis-adjusted so the drive was always engaged, causing the snow thrower to try to run away from me as soon as it was started.

MTD provided the missing cotter pin.I figured out the assembly instructions and adjusted the clutch.DO NOT START THE ENGINE UNTIL AFTER YOU HAVE TESTED THE DRIVE CONTROL CLUTCH!

I also noticed that the paint was peeling off the shift arm assembly.MTD sent me a replacment (in black rather than Yard-Man green), and I installed it myself in an hour or so.

Simple testing of the snow thrower disclosed two important omissions: a muffler guard and an hour meter.

The muffler which becomes very hot with use.I know this because I ruined a snow thrower cover by melting it onto the muffler.To keep this from happening again, I ordered and installed the Tecumseh 36294 muffler guard, which cost me about $45 through a local Tecumseh service dealer.The muffler guard is shown in the photos of this engine on Tecumseh's web site, and the engine even has the mounting holes for the guard, so I don't understand why, on this expensive snow thrower, they didn't include the guard, which surely would have cost MTD much less than I paid.

The guard is not ideal: its spaces are too wide to keep things from hitting the muffler, but I have closed up those spaces with some stainless steel wire.Now (I hope) I won't ruin another cover.

Finally, to be sure the snow thrower gets its scheduled service, I added a SenDEC 806-100-0222 tachometer/hour meter.It's another $40 item that would ideally have been provided with the snow thrower.

So we have: missing/defective parts, and obvious omissions for false economy.It makes me wonder if there have been other omissions.On the other hand, customer service has been good, if not prompt, and the snow thrower does seem to be ruggedly built, and starts easily (at least in 40-degree (F) weather) so I hope it turns out to be effective and reliable.Stay tuned. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars OK snow thrower, lacks some basic 'perks'
This will do the job...if you have several wet, heavy, 6 inch + snowfalls each season.However, I would instead reccommend the Craftsman knock-off version of this same snow-blower that also includes an electric starter (essential on those verrry cold days) for only about $40 more.Or, you can buy this snow thrower and purchase the electric starter seperately for about $150 (and lose out on a good deal).The lack of the electric starter is about all your missing with this one, and it's not too huge and heavy.It clears my driveway (about 25x60) in about 30-40 minutes depending on the amount of snow.Oh, and it's fun to blow the snow everywhere! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars I miss my old Murray
My trusty 5 hp 9-year old Murray mower "disappeared" from my backyard. Thus began the search for a new mower.

Consulting Consumer Reports Magazine I found this mower to be rated a best buy. I don't know why... The mower looks great. That's the good news.

The mower arrive in good time (Amazon has been great in this regard), but it arrived damaged. Not uncommon I would guess, since there was no packing in the box!!! Rattling around in UPS trucks and apparently dropped from great height, the rear wheel adjuster lever was bent and twisted and jammed into the wheel. Luckily I'm handy and 45 minutes and one bandaid later I was adding oil and gas and heading for the lawn.

Thank you Consumer Reports, but here's my review: The cut left a noticeable number of blades standing proud above the others, thus requiring two passes to properly shear the lawn.

This mower likes to be heard. Its Briggs and stratton engine would easily drown out the din of a nearby locomotive. Buy this mower, buy good ear protection.

This mower will really shake you up. Something's not quite balanced. I checked the blade, although it came dull it was balanced just fine. If you're mowing for more than 15 minutes expect numb hands.

Wow ball bearing wheels... give them a good spin and watch them come to stop after about 5 seconds. One wheel wobbles noticeably. Compared to my old Murray with sleeve bearing this clunker is a pain to push.

A mulching mower should convert blades of grass to confetti which magically disappear in the turf. This mower leaves a trail of unmulched blades on top of the turf.

And what power...? its six point five horsepower engine bogs down in the more lush areas of my lawn. My old 5 HP would mow down these areas without losing an RPM.

Finally, go to the Yard-Man website and try to find a path to submit a question, good luck, it's next to impossible. Buried deep within their site you can find a phone number (not toll free), but no email address in which to ask questions (ie. complain) about this fine product.

Consider this mower only if looks are important -- it's darn good looking.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing but a headache
If you want to get a lawn mower, I suggest that you go to the store and pick one up. The quality of the hardware/tool you order from Amazon is a gamble. I got this mower on here and it came defective. I've put my request in for replacement item a month ago and to this date have not seen it yet. My lawn is as tall as the trees around my property because I am still waiting for the part to make my mower work. I will never buy any hardware from Amazon again since most of the items I've recieved from them is in questionable condition.

Save yourself some time and headache and pick up your tools and hardware up at the local store. At least there you'll know that the item you pick up is brand new, not refurbished or defective.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Mower
Wow; 3 words--won-der-ful. Cuts through even wet grass like butter. My old mower with the Briggs and Stratton engine lasted 13 years; I feel confident that this one will last equally as long or even longer. I would highly recommend this mower. Five stars to Amazon, too--for their usual FAST shipping!! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Shipment and initial use
I received the lawnmower in perfect condition ready to have the gas and oil put in, raise the handle and start mowing. I have only used it once but was amazed at how easy it was to turn corners with it and the speed with which it moved. Good walking pace for me. I was mowing high grass with the mulch mode in use and it did overheat. I will use the bag for the rest of the high grass and hope that fixes the overheating problem. I am very pleased with this lawnmower

2-0 out of 5 stars Shipping Poor
The box was total open when the mower arrived. It looked as if the lawn mower fell out and was put back into the box. Oil came out and clogged the air filter so the mower was not able to start. I replaced the air filter and the mower now works 100% but I would be wary buy items like this online again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad Shipment
The shipment of this lawnmower was awful. I uncrated the box to find the cap to the quart of oil that came with the lawmower cracked, and oil strewn everywhere along the inside of the box and mower. But the worst of it came when I noticed the right rear wheel askew and immovable. After taking off the wheel, I noticed that the wheel axel was bent on a 45 degree angle. I was ready to send his mower back to Amazon.com, but noted the return policy that stated that anything containing oil or flammables cannot be returned. I was able to repair the axel myself to the point where the wheel can now turn. I've learned my lesson never to buy something like this online again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Fast delivery, but sprays oil
It arrived quickly, but the oil cap was broken. I tried running it in this state but it sprays oil everywhere and smokes alarmingly. I don't have a car that it fits in, so now I'm having to pay the local service agent to pick it up. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars New Hampshire Certified.
I recently purchased the YardMachines Gold 8.5, 26" 2 stager to replace my snow plow that I am selling.I live in New Hampshire, so we are no stranger to 8"-12" storms, and in the past 4 years or so, a few 16" - 32" overnight storms per year.

I also own a small electric Toro PowerShovel.(works great on small storms.)

Amazon had a great deal on this YardMachines for $799, plus a coupon at checkout for $25 and free delivery!How could I beat that?A couple days after my order, New England had the Blizzard of 2005 and the price apparently jumped to $999 for this same blower. I guess that is supply and demand at work.

The blower arrived and setup took all of 30 minutes to connect this to that, read the manuals, and what not.The unit is "mostly" assembled, only requiring you to click the handle together, the snow chute and a few other very minor things.

As I had significant snow left over on the driveway (400 foot long by 30 feet wide in some areas and 20 feet in others) I set right to work.

It cleaned up nicely on the 1-2 inches I had on the ground.It cuts pretty close to the cement which is good.I then went to work on the snow banks and tried to clear my turnaround.I had about 38 inches of snow stacked up there.

Within 35 minutes or so, I had cleared all of these areas with 2 passes.Very easy, very powerful unit.It throws snow 35 feet or more and the volume of snow flying out of the chute is impressive.

The 6 speeds are nice giving you options moving around.The 2 reverse speeds also help.I am 6 foot, 185lbs and in pretty good shape.I can manhandle this blower pretty well, but a lighter weight person will have a problem.I don't think however that this unit is any worse than any blower of similar size and weight so don't be discouraged by that.

The reason I scored the unit a 4 instead of a 5 is that it is loud.I have heard other blowers which seem much quieter.I would give this unit a 4.8 otherwise, if Amazon allowed for decimals.

Bottom line:I don't think I'll be worried about large snow storms any longer.This unit is easy to start with the electrical starter, is powerful and can handle deep deep snow, and has many nice features. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

After a surprise snowstorm, rid sidewalks, doorstops, and driveways of powder with this powerful two-stage snow thrower from YardMan. A 13 HP four-cycle Tecumseh OHV engine powers the machine as it clears a 33-inch wide path through snowfall up to 22 inches deep.

Equipped with six forward speeds and two in reverse, the snow thrower also has an electric push-button starter. For mornings when electrical start-up is problematic, a traditional pull cord caters to gloved hands with an easy-to-grip handle. A well-designed polymer chute and clearing device prevent clogging, rusting, and freezing. To clear the chute of snow chunks, the snow thrower uses a chute pitch lever and directional crank to send snow up to 180 degrees away from walkways. For deeper snow removal, a 16-inch impeller and a serrated auger design help eradicate dangerous sheets of ice or hardy snow pack.

For traction in the often-slick winter climate, the snow thrower travels on sturdy pneumatic 16-by-6-1/2-inch SnoHog tires. Trigger-controlled power steering and halogen lights also assist users in difficult conditions and limited lighting. For added convenience, the thrower arrives fully-assembled with oil in the engine. (Gasoline must be purchased separately.) In the event of malfunction, YardMan offers thorough troubleshooting on their Web site. In addition to online support, a two-year limited warranty covers this item. This snow thrower weighs 302 pounds as shipped. --Jessica Reuling ... Read more
