Advantages and disadvantages of MTD 990

Refueling with clean gasoline. Low engine noise.

Like, in fact, that is present in 4-cycles. Less noise, less vibration. The exhaust is not as caustic as in 2T. I will not spread rot at all. The mower worked for 6 seasons. 12 acres of 3 cuts per season. For some reason, weight didn’t bother me, although I’m below average physical condition.

4-stroke engine with oil separately, gasoline separately

Quiet 4-stroke engine.

Not enough power. Frequent minor damage. Very expensive parts!

Well, season 7 will not take place with this mower. At the age of 4, the overrunning start clutch failed. Repair was in service. Further, this shmorgalka (starting lace) junk up to the present time. I do not like the reel with this square nut. Now it does not start. I won’t carry it to the service.

1) Weight. but what do you expect? Lubrication in the crankcase, this is not a 4-stroke calm calm 2) the cold starts up well, but for a long time. You will start it when you hang your tongue on your side 3) a spool. a standard disassembling system in the form of a left bolt with a square hat, tightening both halves of the spool, after a couple of years of use through the output, it gives a wedge and can only be turned off with a key, holding the bolt directly, gouging its plastic cover 4) protection. from cutting grass when mowing fishing line does not particularly protect 5) a knife. maaaalenky, the other will not give protection

This is all one continuous flaw. At first the clutch broke. Changed under warranty. Now the starter is covered. Starts terribly with 10 times. Having processed a plot of 10 acres in 5 hours, it ceased to start at all. The neighbors next to Oleo-Mac and Husqvarna do not know such problems. The plastic rod mount constantly broke. As a result, I made one of two mounts.

On the one hand, the trimmer has served for 10 years, and probably still will. During this time, I had to disassemble the starter several times. The cams freeze and the starter does not work. Cleaning, lubrication. Sometimes just tapping the starter cover is enough. Already replaced 3 times the clutch. Unfortunately, springs are not sold separately, and each time you have to buy the clutch assembly at the KONSK price. In the end, I got tired and put about the springs that came up. But they are different in stiffness and grip leads. We have to put up, reluctance to spend 3.5 thousand again. The engine is slow, you need to get used to it, often wraps grass. The native coil has long been replaced (in my opinion is already the fourth). Well and most importantly, do not overheat the engine. The trimmer is not professional. 15-20 minutes and a smoke break

Pluses: Refueling with clean gasoline. Low engine noise.

Disadvantages: Insufficient power. Frequent minor damage. Very expensive parts!

With the spool, the problem was resolved radically. with turning the spacers under the Echo spool. By the way, to dismantle the native spool on the trimmer, if you do not have the efforts of a hydraulic press in your hands, only removing and holding it in a vice. And the fishing line to her is very fond of burning. The problem with starting the cold adjustment of the carb is not resolved. There are also some little things in operation 1) to store ONLY in a horizontal position. the rule for all four-actin with a crankcase with oil. Otherwise, you can catch a water hammer 2) He does not like to work with a tank filled to the very traffic jam. In this case, the carb campaign is rich and the trimmer does not want to unwind. There were no breakdowns, so if you are ready to put up with some shortcomings. normal 4-stroke trimmer.

do not take, torment. Not worth the money.

Disadvantages: This is all one solid drawback. At first the clutch broke. Changed under warranty. Now the starter is covered. Starts terribly with 10 times.

Very low quality. They broke right away: plastic fasteners of the crossbar with handles, a stand made of wire! Very hard to start. The starter began to seize (as it later turned out to be broken). During the third season, the piston died. No spare parts available. Repair 7 000 r. This was the last thing bought by this brand.

Pluses: Quiet 4-stroke engine.

Minuses: Poor quality

I use the trimmer for the third year. Pleases with a powerful four-stroke engine. The quality is not at all happy: three breakdowns with not frequent use. First, the clutch, the spring has flown, it is impossible to put it on yourself. For the second and third time, the starter cracked. It’s impossible to get to it yourself and see what’s there. Every time you take him to a service center and wait a month, and the grass grows. It may not be lucky with this particular unit.
