OK but can't recommend.
on October 1, 2017
I want to like it and was liking the idea of getting a series of GreenWorks products without the hassle of gas, using the same battery. It is quiet, easy-to-use, lightweight, and it does do a serviceable job. But I can't recommend it. It just doesn't cut very well when the grass is thick (relative to my yard--which isn't that thick). It misses blades of grass (or doesn't cut levelly) even when pushing slow.
The other annoyance is the bag design.The bag doesn't seal as tightly as other mowers and light-weight leaves are blown out the top of the catcher and aren't caught by the bag. And if you position the mower such that the there is something higher under the bag (like a sprinkler head or garden border), the bag gets easily lifted up and off.
