Thinking about buying a new walk behind self propelled lawn mower . Walmart has this Remington , with a Remington engine .

Anyone know anything about Remington mowers ?

Anyone know anything about Remington engines ? The mowers we have had in the past all had B&S engines .

Thanks , :-)

Well is it a bolt or a semi automatic?

All joking aside I'd be leary Remington just applied for bankruptcy.

I believe Remington Power Tools is a brand owned by MTD. Check the country of origin on the engine. I do not think MTD makes any of its engines, but I could be wrong.

Probably just a name assigned to an MTD/Murray mower.
Saw some Remington OPE at Menards. That is the only place that I have ever observed that name used regarding OPE.
Last time I was in WM, all of their lower end mowers were "Hyper Tough", or some simple name like that.

Sorry , left off the link .

I think it is non stock / order only , at least for our stores . Did not see any at the local Walmart .

So , can not look to see the country of origin on the engine .

Thanks , :-)

An old Toro in good shape will beat a new MTD mower any day.

MTD product and most likely has a Chinese Kohler Clone engine. You would be better off getting something with a Briggs & Stratton or Honda engine. Take a look at the Husqvarna mowers at Lowe’s.

I would avoid MTD. There are better for not that much more. Husqvarna or Craftsman model #917.xxxxxx is made by Husqvarna. The #247.xxxxxx is MTD. (Or it was a few years ago).

I have a Ariens self propelled with Kohler Courage and the carb was recalled for corrosion in the needle seat. After a few calls they sent me a replacement carb and its been fine ever since.

I am only familiar with Remington branded chainsaws (orange and black)

Both gas & electric models are both GARBAGE!!!!!!!!!

Maybe the mower is OK.....

Remington is just a defunct name slapped on a cheap mower. Remington firearms and Remington ammo are completely different companies from it and each other. MTD was decent when they were still USA made. Now they’re just Chinese-made and disposable. I agree; find a good used American-made mower. It’ll last more than a couple of years.

most mowers are made by a very few manufacturers + rebranded! if you want a great rear drive bagger get a honda, all use dual blades + their large rear discharge NEVER clogs!!! home depot is a dealer i believe, i mail ordered mine from Wise sales as it was a model available at HD, best mower i ever had, it shames my outgoing snapper!! whatever you get be sure its rear drive where the weight of the bagged grass is + NO skinny shutes that easily clog!! the hondas use a rear sliding door, close to mulch + open to bag easy peasy!! my aunt has the $399 model from HD + its great, i went hydrostatic $$$ as i was mowing 4 lawns weekly before i gave it up, good beer $$$
