Our Verdict

Solid, durable, and with a killer motor, the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 gas lawnmower is the best choice for the mowing expert.

For

  • Robust steel deck
  • Powerful shaft engine
  • Blade stop technology

Against

  • Heavy
  • Choke and pull-cord start
  • Aimed at professionals

The Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 is an absolute tank of a mower. For a start, forget the belt drives that you typically find in lawnmowers: the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 has a 196cc shaft drive engine with a specially made 3-speed gearbox. It's also really well made - the deck is solid steel, and every part of the mower is heavy and durable. You won't be wearing this mower out in a hurry!

Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1: Price

The Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 costs $799 on Home Depot and that puts it close to the top end of the gas-powered lawnmower range. But considering the build quality and the engine you're getting here, we think it's actually pretty good value.

Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1: Features

While it has all the basics covered, like 3-in-1 operation for bagging, mulching or discharge, the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 lacks some of the more advanced features of the more expensive lawnmowers on the market. For instance, there's no blade-stop technology on this model - for that, you'll have to upgrade to the more expensive Weibang WB537SCVAL, which costs $999. 

The features you're really paying for here are the shaft drive engine and the commercial-grade 3-speed transmission. The build quality is also really high. It's impossible to convey in words how solid the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 is. It really is like a little tank!

It's worth giving the Weibang's wheels a mention. They're rubber, not plastic, and have double ball bearings for extra durability. And they need it because at 120lbs this is a very heavy mower. You probably don't want to be lifting it into a truck or hanging it on a wall, so you need to take that into consideration when buying. The handle folds down easily though, and you can set it up on its back wheels for easy cleaning.

Pushing the mower isn't a problem though, because it's self-propelled, and the powerful engine means it has no problems going up hills, in fact, it feels like it's been built for that job.

Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1: Performance

The Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 is a pull start mower, but it has easy start technology built-in, so that it starts first time, every time. 

Once it's running this mower is perfect for any conditions, including steep or hilly lawns, and thanks to the professional-grade transmission and powerful 196cc engine there's plenty of torque. 

When it comes to running this mower, there are more controls with the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 than you might be used to in a standard lawnmower. For instance, there's a three-speed controller for self-propulsion, and a separate throttle controller, so you can idle the engine down before you turn it off, which will increase its life.

We keep emphasizing it, but in terms of durability, the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 really does feel like it's been built to last a lifetime, just make sure you change the oil occasionally and you should be fine. 

Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1: User reviews

The Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 scores a massive 4.9 out of 5 stars on Home Depot's website, with a huge 93% recommendation, which is one of the highest scores we've ever seen. 

It's no surprise that the build quality, smooth running, powerful shaft engine with a 3-speed gearbox and general robustness of the whole mower are the key factors that people mention. Customers get a genuine buzz out of owning such an awesome piece of engineering.

Home Depot customer Tim's comment is typical: "This is a great mower! I saw this at the GIE Expo in 2017 and knew that I had to have one. The powerful shaft driven engine makes this mower unstoppable. It will cut in any weather conditions and can tackle any grass type and length, leaving no clippings behind. The single height adjustment and quick folding handles make using this machine a breeze."

Should you buy the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1?

From reading our review you'll realize that the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1 isn't a typical lawnmower. It's a quality piece of engineering and while that may suit the lawnmower enthusiast or a person who can appreciate engines, it may be a little bit of overkill for the person who just wants a basic lawnmower to push around their small back yard.

Having said that, if you're comfortable with the more traditional controls and don't mind being in charge of such a powerful machine, you'll love the Weibang WB537SCV-3IN1.
