‘The mower was easy to assemble, is easy to start, easy to handle, (it has large rear wheels, so is easy to turn) and has made short work of our large lawn. Varying cut heights is useful as is the large grass box. Also one can ‘mulch’ the grass and leave it as a dressing.” said a second.
‘I took the mower over to the paddock and it coped splendidly with all the longish grass that had not been cut in the last six months. For the price it is an ideal self propelled motor mower,’ another wrote.
