Menards has the worst return policy ever!!! I bought a MTD mower and it is junk!!
Halfway through mowing my yard the mower decided to lower itself, so I had t go back and remow what I had already done. It then kept catching on every bump of grass I hit. When I went to raise the mower, it broke the raising mechanism and now the wheel will not turn. I called Menards and they said they do not return anything that has already had gas in it.
So how do you know if a mower is a piece of *** without putting gas in it and mowing? I will never shop here again and go to Home Depot like I should have in the first place. I have never had a problem taking anything back there and that includes a *** eater. I have a Honda mower that is 30 years old and starts first pull every time(it burns oil but thats to be expected of a 30 year old engine).
I will never try to save money on any type of small engine ever again.
I would rather have paid twice the price and have something that will last another 30 years!! If you are going to try to keep up with the big boys you had better be able to match their service!!!!
