It's a push mower. It uses a Briggs & Stratton engine, about 2 or 2 1/2 HP, with the spark-plug on the front, and the small gas tank on the right front (the side away from me on the right when I am holding the handlebar.) It has a rubber bulb button that I press 3 times, or 4 or 5) before trying to start the engine. The engine starts easily.
Tipping the mower up to the left will also keep it running. Because my end-of-group townhouse lawn is very small, I can still finish, but is there a solution for this?
