A novelty to the neighbors
on December 8, 2013
After a whole season of using this sled, my routine evolved into mowing three passes each time I mowed. So I basically mow three times. I played with the blade adjustments, trying as-close-as-can-be, to giving it a little more room in the cut. In the end, it does not cut well on the left side of the pass, so I turn around and retrace the pass so the "good side" takes care of it. (Yes, I adjusted to insure the blade clearance was parallel) Even then, it's not all that clean, so I then conduct diagonal passes to get the remainder, and it still does not look like a good gas motor's cut.
I like the lack of required maintenance, and it is a good workout, but I think I'm going back to a gas mower next year. The novelty has worn off.
Oh, and it's not good for nooks and such; you basically have to throw it around like a vacuum cleaner. Changing directions to try different approaches for the same reason described above.
