It's an okay mower....You still have to push it! My husband just passed away and I am over 60 so now it's up to me to take care of the lawn. At this time I have been looking at the riding lawn mowers so I'm curious which one is best for the price!
I think the Murray riding mower is the best built and made my daddy used it. My granddad and great grandfather used them so it's all I used since I was 5 years old and I would recommend it to anyone I talk to or come across. They are long lasting and built for a lifetime of use so anyone that doesn't use this household product are really missing out on what this family name of lawnmowers is all about and onto missing out on quality mowers and tools

Very reliable and rides well as it cuts well also. Not noisy and easy to operate. You will enjoy cutting your grass on your MURRAY lawn mower each time you use it. Good tires and good handling will give you years of enjoyment.
Two Murray mowers purchased at Walmart within the past three years are junk. Plastic carburetors foul after a year and need replacement. Perhaps kill switch issues.. Who knows... Bought new in 2018, summer of 2019 wouldn't start. Bought another new mower in 2019 to replace, summer 2021 will start but will not stay running. Marketplace is full of similar murray mowers with the same issue. Replaced the last one with a 70s Toro....which the Toro will probably last my lifetime.
Mower cover for grass clogs so bad the grass is stuck under mower deck and up against black grass cover. A few times around yard and I have to stop, take black grass cover off and scrape under deck and black cover. It is a very bad constructed riding lawn mower. I am 80 yrs young and really like mowing my grass, But I would not recommend this Murray riding mower to anyone. I really liked my Murray Push mower, but I can't walk that far pushing the mower anymore. I am really disappointed with the construction of this Murray riding mower.
Murray has been my brand of choice for my mower and other outdoor maintenance needs. I don't think I would trust another brand after using Murray for more than 20 years. The quality of the equipment is always up to bar and has never failed me. The price is always reasonable as well.
Always have liked the dependability of a Murray. Just hate that the price is so high. Have purchased at least 3 and if I can get it for close to what I have paid will buy again. As long as you keep up the maintenance should last for years.
I bought this 21 inch push mower, self-propelled and mulching, from Walmart in September 2019. The mulch flap flew off while I was mowing and I cannot find the parts in my lawn to reattach it. Finding the replacement parts is impossible because Model # MNA1560N is not listed in any internet search, nor in the Murray/Briggs & Stratton website. This is so odd to me. I have all the manuals that came with the mower, and the parts schematic does not list them either. No reply from Murray!!
When you take care of your stuff, it is important to have access to the tools you need in order to replace parts, namely, something as simple as part numbers! Performance wise, it is rear wheel drive and is fine moving forward but it is extremely difficult to maneuver backwards, which you need to do often when trying to mow angles or fence corners etc. Yes, I disengage the self propel line when pulling the mower backwards!! I will continue to try to locate the part or reach somebody who can help me, but I will not buy another Murray product because of the parts issue.
I am simply trying to buy a replacement blade. I called the phone number on the mower, and the person on the phone refused to speak clearly, blamed the problem on the pandemic, and stated I should call back in a few weeks. THEY should call the customer back, if they want business. Now I understand why their product is sold at Walmart. I went to the Murray web page, described the problem. I received an automatic response saying they would respond in 48 hours. That did not happen either. Next I will make a review of their sorry response to post on You Tube, hoping to save other customers time and money.
I bought this 17.5 hp riding mower in July 2019. It hangs up in directional gear. Whether it's forward or reverse. I called for repair shop on warranty. The shop I was given name of says they will not work on it cause it was purchased at WalMart. Now it has died and won't restart. Has gas, battery is good. But no fire. So now who am I supposed to get to work on it with the warranty? Not a happy camper. This mower isn't even a year old yet. I will never buy another Murray at Walmart.
