All lawn mowers should be treated with respect. They are powerful machines and in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage.

Rear bagging of grass cuttings is far superior to side bagging. The lawn mower has better balance and it is much easier to navigate around shrubs and trees.  In addition the larger wheels at the back provide additional strength to support a heavy bag of grass cuttings. As a result they are also more maneuverable with a grass catcher around shrubs and other tight spaces.

Each wheel can be individually adjusted to the desired height for perfect grass cutting. The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q comes partially assembled with consumers completing assembly in a matter of minutes. Make sure you add the oil to the engine prior to starting for the first time.

Warranty

The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q comes with a 3 year limited warranty. Of course, Consumers concerned about what is covered and what is not covered should review the limited warranty before purchase.

Accessories

The rear discharge kit was the only accessory mentioned.

Price & Delivery

The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q can be purchased at a number of dealers around the country. We did not see a price on the company’s website for this push lawn mower.

Maintenance

Consumers who take good care of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q will have a lawn mower that lasts for many years. Subsequently after every grass cutting, clean off the deck of the lawn mower. This prevents buildup of wet grass that is acidic. It can over time eat away at the deck of the lawn mower. Build up of grass near the exhaust can also ignite a fire or at least cause a lot of smoke to be generated. If you do not think this can happen, the writer can attest that it actually happened on his lawn mower.

Also, before starting the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q each time, check it over to confirm there are no loose parts. Also that there is sufficient oil in the engine and sufficient gasoline in the tank for to cut your lawn. As a general rule you should not fill a gasoline tank while the engine is hot.

Change the oil based on the recommendations of the manufacturer, however it should be changed at least once per season as a minimum and more often if you are a heavy user and have a lot of lawn to cut.

Safety & Operation

A few comments about safety and operation of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q are needed. When ever you are working on the lawn mower always shut the engine off. Never try to clear grass from the housing while the engine is running. The same goes for oil changes and changing the grass catcher. But many people will circumvent what is known as the dead man’s switch i.e. when you release the bar, the engine stops. However some people will wire these closed so that the engine remains running even if your hands are not on the push handle. As a result we strongly recommend against this approach. Never allow the engine to run while you are doing anything other than cutting grass.

Sometimes sharp objects could exit out of the opening at the back while the grass catcher bag is removed or out of the side discharge if you are using that option. Sharp objects can damage and hurt anything in their way.  Just turn off the machine before doing any maintenance.

Yard Machines 139 CC 22inch Self Propelled

September 7th, 2010 ernie Posted in 22 Inch Cut, Front Self Powered, Yard Machines 5 Comments »

I just followed my own advice from the last post and managed to purchase a new lawn mower at a considerable discount at Lowes. Unfortunately there are no  more Yard Machines 139 CC  22inch Self Propelled left at the store I went to but you never know if there will be others. There were about 5 lawn mowers left when i bought mine.

The curious thing is that I cannot find it on any web site, even the manufacturers. It is very similar to the Model 44M9 on the Yard Machines web site, however it differs in three major areas. Yard Machines 139 CC 22inch Self PropelledFirst it is a 22 inch wide lawn mower and secondly it does not have a rear bag attachment for catching the grass. You can either use this lawn mower as a mulcher or a side discharge, which is fine with me.

The last major difference that we could see is that it has an old fashion choke instead of an auto choke. The picture on the left is exactly the same as mine, without the grass catcher on the back.  It works fine, you just have to remember to open the choke when you start it cold and close the choke once it is running. The choke is located on the push bar handle within easy reach.

This is a really great lawn mower. I have cut the lawn several times and really enjoy the self propelled feature and also not having to bag the grass! Here are the specs for the machine we purchased.

Yard Machines 139 CC 22inch Self Propelled – Specifications:

  • 139cc MTD PowerMore™ OHV engine
  • AutoChoke – no priming. Just pull and start.
  • Overhead valve engines run more efficiently and produce fewer emissions than the standard L-Head engines.
  • 22″ deck
  • 9 position individual wheel height adjustment
  • 8″ wheels

Engine: The engine is a 139cc MTD PowerMore™ OHV engine

Propulsion: This is a Front wheel drive self-propelled machine

Warranty: This lawn mower comes with a 2 year limited warranty.

Features:

  • 22″ deck
  • Front wheel drive self-propelled
  • Mulch or side discharge
  • Durable automotive style powder coated paint
  • Bottle of oil included

Description of the Yardman 139 CC 22inch self Propelled Lawn Mower

We are very satisfied with this lawn mower. It starts the first time every time. It is easy to steer and control with the self propelled feature and it mulches the grass very well. I usually keep the self propelled feature engaged and just lift the front wheels a bit if I need to slow down or turn a corner. This lawn mower is 22 inches wide, which is 2 inches wider than my old lawn mower and I do not have to bag the grass either. I save a lot of time as a result and I am saving on the cost of paper bags which we fill each week and put out to the curb. Saves me money and saves the city the cost of having to pick up my grass clippings!

All I had to do was add the oil to the engine from the bottle of oil that was included with the lawn mower, fill the gas tank with regular gasoline and start it. I have checked the oil level a few times since and it is still at the right level and clear as when I first put it in.

Delivery: Most lawn mowers can be picked up in the store, however if you do not have the means to take it home yourself, delivery usually can be arranged for a delivery charge. You may want to consider borrowing a trailer or a van to bring home your lawn mower and avoid the delivery charge.

I was able to just get the box into my trunk with the trunk lid left open. Fortunately I did not have to far to go to get home.

Safety & Operation

All lawn mowers should be treated with respect. They are powerful machines and in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. Start by reading the manual and following all of the safety guidelines outlined in the manual. Never work on the lawn mower with out first ensuring that the engine is turned off.

While cutting the lawn and using the side discharge, never allow anyone to stand beside the discharge or point the discharge at something that could be damaged by high speed flying objects  ejected from the lawn mower.
