Our gas powered lawnmower wasn't purchased at Menards, but the one we bought from a private dealer was gassed up appropriately and when we tried to use it, it refused to start. We never used it! We took it back to the private dealer to have it looked at. A few days later we were told manufacturer said we had abused it by hitting something hard enough to bend the "shaft". Sort of hard to bend the shaft when it didn't start in the first place! Briggs and Stratten refused to back their retailer and their product when they are the ones responsible for its manufacture. Lawn mower companies should take responsibility for their products and help the retailer to help their customers!!
MANUFACTURERS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!
Monetary Loss: $450.
