I'm looking at this mower on Walmart.com
It says it has a:
500 series engine with 158cc Briggs & Stratton motor
They used to rate these Briggs (and other) engines by their
horsepower. Now they got this metric shit that means absolutely
Does anyone know how to determine the HP on this thing?
See the mower here:
Of course it will. Comparing it to washing it down is like saying a
car left exposed outside instead of having it garaged is no worse off
than cars taken to the car wash occasionally. Leaving it outside,
depending on the exact climate, can expose it to long periods of being
wet, high humidity which can condense on inside parts, etc.
Plus, I don't know about you, but if I were washing off my mower, I
wouldn't be spraying water down on top of the engine like rain would

My new 190cc brigs has 6.75 lb of torque so the 158cc will have alot
of power. I dont understand why they dropped the HP rating, but I bet
my 190 cc has 6.2-6.75 HP it spins a 21" blade with powerdrive and has
excess power, you are probably getting a 19" blade which only needs 4hp

News flash: The HP numbers didn't mean anything either.
All they indicated was "bigger is better" same as the numbers do now.
More cc's, a higher torque rating, etc., means a more powerful mower.
Bigger is better.
