  1. Thank you for taking the time to make the McCulloch review. I have been facing some issues with my own lawn mowers. I’ve replaced them like (*two to three times*). I usually try to pick mine for the longer run, you know last for a long period of time. Maybe this time, I’ll buy this and give it a go. Again thanks for the detailed listings and the Q/A session is awesome too. Maybe this time, since I know it in better detail, I’ll get myself a good one that can last a few years. Sid
