Quality materials so you don’t have to fight with the mechanisms.
Easy to assemble
The clipping bag works well
Does require effort but nothing too strenuous
Now this is not like a powered mower. It does not have motorized wheels to pull it along. It does require some effort to use but I like using it and I hated mowing my lawn before.
I am also a 5’4” average-strength woman. I find this mower easy to use.
I have a 40’ by 30’ back yard with a little bit of grass on the sides of the house and it takes maybe 30-45 minutes by the time I wrestle it out of my over-packed shed, mow and put it back. My lawn is 5 years old in a new neighbourhood so my landscaping is new and smooth with the appropriate drainage sloping required by the city. It mows the slopes (15 degrees max.) pretty good.
It does an ok job along the fence however I still need to use the weed-whacker to trim up the areas along the fence, deck and garden. More than with my old gas powered mower.
It does an ok job at mowing over dandelions hower with the thicker stalked weeds you do need to go ever the area a few times or just pull them out by hand.
The grass clipping basket works better than I thought it would. I was impressed with how much grass it caught and I do use it more than I thought I would.
This mower was a little harder to use when I first purchased it however after about 3 uses it broke in nicely and is easier to push.
It stopped working the second time I used it however a little clump or hard dirt got jammed between the blades and the guard on the back so I put on some leather gloves, spun the blade the other way and it came out. It worked perfect after that.
It works pretty good on grass that is 4” tall. I have it set to the lowest setting. Sometime if there is too mch grass clipping on top of the reel it will not properly cut the lawn but I brush it off and it works good. Be careful though, the blades are sharp.
I really like this mower. I have used it for two months now (June and July). And I do recommend it.
But the left wheel fell off after 10 minutes of mowing. The wheel part was already assembled so I assume it was loose from the start. My fault for not having checked every nut on the mower, I suppose. This caught me by surprise. It was very awkward to tighten. Luckily, I found all the pieces of the inside of the wheel in the grass, except the washer. After having to retighten the wheel nut every 5 minutes, I bought a rubber washer at Home Depot and reattached wheel bolt with a nut locker and every thing has been fine since then.
Otherwise, this mower has been fine. My only problem was the wheel.
This has been my experience.
I've now used it three times on the lawn in our small (~30 x 40 ft), relatively flat back yard. I am very satisfied with it: the height adjustment is easy, the blades are sharp, the clippings catcher does what it is supposed to do and is very easy to empty when needed, and noise is not an issue. Definitely best for light jobs on dry grass.
