Riding mowers are best suited for yards measuring one acre or larger. A model with a 42-inch cutting deck is great for mowing up to two acres, so if you have more land than that, you`ll want to spring for a 46, 54, 60, or 72-inch cutting deck.

Equipped with Briggs & Stratton® twin cylinder engine with ReadyStart® auto-choke starting system that powers up easily, with no choke or priming necessary.
Determine Mower Deck Size
For homeowners with one and a half to three acres to mow, a mower with a cutting deck between 42” to 48” is a good size. Over three acres, you`ll want something larger. Before buying a 72” mower for lawns greater than three acres, consider your terrain.
Look for a mower with at least 14-16 hp and a wide mowing deck – at least 38 inches – to get your lawn work done quickly. Yards larger than three acres are best handled by a larger zero-turn rider or a garden tractor. Look for models that have at least 18hp engines and mowing decks in the 44-54 inch range.
If you need a heavy-duty mower that can work through tall grass and uneven lawns, you`ll need around 6.0 HP. A yard of 1 to 2 acres should be able to produce 14 to 16 HP. A small engine size of between 18 and 24 HP is required for yards of 3 to 5 acres.
Make sure you get the right tractor for your lawn size. 1/2 – 1 acre — For a lawn this size, you`ll want a riding lawn mower with a cutting width of up to 42″ and at least a 14 HP engine. 1 – 2 acres — For yards in this size range, a riding lawn mower with a 42″ or 46″ deck and an engine in the 14 – 16 HP is necessary.

Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.
Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

I have had a poulan pro 550 series push mower for almost 1 year at the end of the season last year the mower would start briefly and then stop. i have cleaned out the air filter and that did not help.the mower started, i made one revolution around the yard 3/4th of the way the mower quit. I then primed the mower it started then quit and now it will not start at all. Does anyone have any suggestions of what to do. Thanks
