    My neighbor bought the cheapest Walmart mower. A Murray with a 4.5 Briggs and Stratton engine.
    I was mowing her lawn with, the air filter cover fell off (didnt see it) and I ran over it. I have called Briggs and Stratton. A B&G dealer. Everyone. I cannot get the part without the model # off this mower. I have given them EVERY # off the mower and they cannot help me. I told the dealer I WILL BRING THE FCKN MOWER TO YOU.......they said they still cannot help me. I went to walmart on Waldo Road opened the box of the same mower and still couldnt find the model #. I took that part off and held it in my hand and looked at it for a part #............I wanted so bad to just take it home. Called my brother who knows all about machinery. He said he could find the model # in 10 seconds. Or just take pics of the mower and he can find it online. We will see.
    Took my Honda Civic 05 to the dealer today and got the airbag replaced. They bend over backward there to make you happy about coming in there. Now I take my 05 dodge truck on Friday for the same thing to Dodge.

    You should have left the mowing of the lawn to a trained professional....I can suggest any number of Mexican fellows.

      Yes, make sure the Mexican is illegal - they do the superior work. I had some plants installed recently and I specifically requested illegals only. The owner obliged, because that's all he had, and I'm pretty sure he's sans paperwork himself.

        • Model numbers on Murray push mowers and walk behind mowers are normally on the center of the deck between the brackets that mount the lower handle.

        That is the Murray model number they want the engine model number. THAT IS THE PIC of the mower. You can see that filter cover on the right side with the red soft button to prime it to start.
        MY kingdom for that cover........btw I dont need Mexicans. I like to mow, I use it as wkout

        Yes, it's quite obvious that you don't need help. You had one simple job...

            I mow all the time. One older neighbor for free many years (till I found out she had plenty of money) Now this single mom who needs some help. Funny thing about that stupid cover. I was thinking how smart they have the gas cap attached so you cannot lose it ( I have run over a few of those after leaving them on top of the engine). Then that stupid assss cover falls off. I will find another and keep mowing for my neighbor........btw the cover accident is nothing. I wish I could show you my middle finger on my right hand........When I was 14 after football practice with a big Snapper mower it was a bloody mess.

                  Why didn't you just take the cover off the mower you opened in Wal-Mart?
