Yard Machines 140cc 21-Inch Push Mower, a Solid Walk-Behind Mower from MTD
The Yard Machines product range is manufactured by MTD, an Australian company. They are renowned for producing easy-to-use equipment. Although the tools do not have many features, they are extremely durable and reliable.
The Yard Machines 140cc 21-inch push-mower is a competitively priced entry-level lawn mower. It is probably one of least expensive mowers on the market. This price, however, does not mean that the machine is inefficient, it just does not have too many features. If you are looking for a multi-function mower, this is probably not the garden tool for you. This is most definitely a no frills mower as it doesn’t have and cannot fit a catcher bag.
This is obviously a deal breaker for many, but if you are content with a mower without a catcher bag, the Yard Machines 140cc is probably one of the cheapest and best options you can find. The mower is powered by a 140cc engine, like most small push-mowers. The four-cycle engine offers good power output and is also surprisingly quiet.
The machine features a 20-inch steel cutting deck capable of handling small to medium-sized lawns. It has standard ball control and recoil, and spare parts are rather easy to come by. When it comes to the disadvantages of the mower, we already mentioned the bag, but that is not the only potentially problematic area. The mower also comes without the currently popular mulching feature.
The size of the wheels might also be a problem, both the rear and the front wheels come are 7’’ in size, which is not ideal for maneuverability. No Yard Machines lawn mower review could be complete without the pros and cons:
- Excellent price
- Good cuts
- Solid power output
- Engine durability
- Efficient cutting deck
- No catcher bag,
- No mulching
The Yard Machines 140cc barely has any features, but if you are okay with that, and can live without a catcher bag, this might be a solid option for you.
