Re: She's alive 😁
My L is a pull start. The 30 inch mower is a little light on the front, the factory made weights to add to it. I usually find a old tire to sit around the gearbox.
You will find the weight balance is important. If you are mowing your lawn with the 30 inch, being light helps you wip it around in turns without the skids digging too bad, and without having to push down on the handlebars.
Being heavier helps on hills and rough ground. When the attachment is heavier, you can actually push down on the handlebars for more traction, without the attachment coming off the ground. I can actually go up steeper hills with the heavier 40 inch mower because of the ability to press down on the handlebars for traction.
