Affordable, easy-to-use lawn mower with Briggs & Stratton engine, 26-inch cutting deck, and compact storage

The Weed Eater WE-ONE riding lawn mower is not only affordable, but it’s very easy to use, especially for smaller and medium-sized lawns. It has a Briggs & Stratton engine, so you know the mower will be reliable, and a 26-inch cutting deck with height adjustments. Whether you’re in the market for a small mower because you have a medium-sized lawn or because you don’t have a lot of storage space, the Weed Eater can efficiently and quickly cut your grass.

190cc Briggs & Stratton engine

The 190cc Briggs & Stratton engine provides power without all the noise. As a smaller engine, the 190cc doesn’t generate the kind of volume that big engines do, so you can mow without feeling like you’re disturbing the whole neighborhood. In terms of power, this engine has 8.75 torque, so it’s durable.

26-inch cutting deck

The cutting deck may be small at only 26-inches, but it doesn’t let its size hold it back. It’s made from gauge steel and is protected from denting. The deck is also deep with a single blade, so the airflow within the deck helps the mower cut grass evenly and precisely. You can adjust your cutting height anywhere between 1.5-4 inches.

Three drive speeds for edging, cutting, and speed

The Weed Eater WE-ONE has three drive speeds numbered 1-3. The first speed is for cutting along an edge, while the second speed is for normal grass-cutting. The last speed is the fastest, for when you just want to get from one place to the next. You also have the option of putting the mower in cruise control; just release your foot while in any of the three gears.


Easy to use

Even if you haven’t driven a riding lawn mower before, the WE-ONE is easy to use. It has an electric start, so it starts up right away. When you’re driving, you can control both the brake and clutch with just one foot. You brake pushing down the pedal like you would for a car, and engage the clutch to go forward by lifting that same foot.

Easy to store

Like any compact mower, the Weed Eater is easy to store. Unlike other mowers, this one stores flatter against walls for an even more space-efficient fit.


The Weed Eater is much cheaper than other mowers, even compact ones. This make it a great mower if you’re on a budget and/or you’ve never owned a riding lawn mower before. Couples who are just starting out and beginning to build their families often have lawns that would benefit from a compact lawn mower.


Non-CARB compliant

One of the downsides to the Weed Eater WE-ONE is that it isn’t CARB compliant. This means it does not meet the requirements (as decided by the California Air Resources Board) for a lower-emission lawn mower. The Weed Eater is not environmentally-friendly, and is not for sale in California.

Really small cutting deck

Another drawback is that 26 inches is very small for a cutting deck, even for a compact mower. You’ll have to make a lot of passes if you’re lawn is on the larger end, but it should be fine for smaller lawns. The smooth ride also helps speed up the whole process.

Overall Review

The Weed Eater WE-ONE gas-powered riding lawn mower is affordable, compact, and very easy to use. It offers a good cutting deck (though 26 inches may be too small for bigger yards) with a height adjustment option, so you can leave your grass a little long if you like. The Briggs & Stratton engine is very reliable, so you can expect the mower to last a while. Overall it is a good option for smaller lawns that are too big to mow with a normal mower.
