Push Mower Comparison? Which One???

In the need for a new push mower. I'm comparing one from Sears and one from Farm-n-Fleet. All the features are the same 6.75 HP, Front wheel self propelled, mulch, bag and side discharge, etc... The price varies by $25.00 (not concerned with that). I need some mechanical advise on the Sears (Craftsman brand) vs. the Farm-n-Fleet (White Outdoor Brand). Does somebody have any knowledge that can rate one over the other?????

It largely depends on the brand and mosel of the engine, but neither of these are top of the line mowers, so I would reccomend picking the one with the features you like most. Service may be another thing to look at. Sears is usually pretty good about standing behind their products and do offer their own repair service. I don't know about the farm and fleet brand, but White outdoors is MTD.

Since I'm 6'-3", handle bar location is very important for me. I don't want a mower that I have to bend over to use agravating my back worse than it already is. So my recommendation with all else being essentially equal, is to pick the one that is most comfortable for your height, comfortable placement of controls, lightest in weight, and easiest to check and change oil on.
