Needed to replace our Hayter which was never really up to the job..
First of all, after an extensive search on the internet, I found this mower. Excellent website, easy to use and went for the Feider TR5220 Variable-Speed Petrol Rear-Roller Lawnmower. I did telephone the company to ask if it had a throttle control - I was told it had, it has not.
Delivered in three working days - opened it up, well packaged - no damage.
Assembly: The bolts to fix the bottom half of the handle as illustrated in the instruction booklet are completely different to the actual bolts supplied. Being Scottish and having an engineering heritage, I did manage to work out how it went together. The two cables to be attached to the two control leavers are identical making it a bit difficult to determine which is which and are rather awkward to fix to there handles. Having the engine oil supplied is a bonus - thank you.
Performance: Superb, the cut is excellent, the grass collection box fills right up and the mower leaves nice stripes... took a little bit of getting used to turning in tight spots, but fairly easy with the split roller.
Overall I would recommend this machine for larger gardens.
