  • Easy repair, once I got the tank
    The tank appears to be an exact copy of the tank that went bad. the ordering process could use some streamlining, in my opinion. I would have thought that providing you with the Model Number & Serial Number, you would have had enough information to tell me what tank was needed for my mower. I also had to find & provide any & all numbers on the engine & the old tank, before you could tell me what tank I needed. With all of the back & forth, it took 3 days to get the tank ordered. I don't know what I thought the tank would cost, but the $66+ that it cost me ends up being about half the price of a whole new mower! However, now that I finally have the right tank, the mower is running like a champ & I expect it will keep running for several more years.
