- It Does What it's Supposed to Do
It Does What it's Supposed to Do It's the first time I've had a sit-on mower so am unable to compare with anything else. The mower was delivered promptly and I was given a short demo to make sure I was familiar with the controls, so well done, and thanks for the time. It's easy to operate and does a great job cutting the large lawn we now have.
The customer service received from MowDirect has been very good from start to finish, so I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the company.
I've yet to fit the mulching kit (as this is NOT fitted to the mower when it's delivered) so this could be interesting, but given the good service received so far, I think I can rely on MowDirect to help with any queries/questions that I may have.
- Great So Far
Great So Far Ordered late Sunday, delivered Wednesday, packed on a pallet, wrapped in bubble wrap, then in black plastic. The plastic and bubble wrap were easy to remove. The mower was VERY secure on the pallet, I removed some bits of the pallet with hammer, chisel, and drill / screwdriver. But some of the fixings were under the mower. I ended up using a jig saw to cut the pallet to pieces before being able to drive off!!
I've now used the mower for an hour and a half, cutting down the jungle that had grown up since the last mower died . I like the variable drive. it's the first time I've used a choke in 30 years.
I find the seat and driving position comfortable. The mower on its highest setting and slowest driving speed has coped with 4ft nettles and 2 ft grass. A quick try on smooth grass low setting gave a good short neat cut.
I disliked not being able to reverse with the blades running, the slightest hint of the blades being engaged when in reverse kills the engine.* I've not tried the drinks container holder!!!
This is the best ride on mower we've had. This is the 4th, but two of the previous ones were old second hand ( one over 30 years old). The other new one died because mice built a nest inside the cowling on the engine!!
Having had the other mowers this shows the the more modern the design the better they are. Mice permitting, I think this one should last a long time...
*(Ed: This is now a health and safety requirement. Very few tractors now have reverse mowing as standard.)
Great! Beats the socks off my old Husqvarna! Doesn't cut as close as I would like, but on the flip-side it does handle rough ground with ease. Covers my 1 acre easily and there's some steep ground in it. Mulcher was somewhat of a pain to fit but now on and it does the job.
Great customer service communication and super fast delivery. Rare in this day and age so kudos to the company.
