Good value, Good Service
A good machine complemented by a no hassle service from MowDirect. The pre delivery information was comprehensive and the delivery itself took place when expected. It was clear beforehand that once checked and signed for it was for me to remove the machine from the pallet, so I had help arranged. Not a single handed job! The machine just needed petrol and the battery connecting; everything else had been done pre delivery.
The Lawnflite 60RDE is good value for money and does the job well and I would recommend it for light duty work.
Niggles? Yes the gear knob is starting to come loose. The mower deck only extends to the wheel edge on the RHS so if you are used to mowing close to borders etc on the left then a 6 inch strip will be left un-mowed.
Manoeuvring in tight spaces is a pain as you cannot reverse with mower deck engaged. So you have to go through continuous sequence of clutch, neutral, disengage mower then reverse. Clutch, neutral, engage mower then forward etc.
The grass collector can be emptied without leaving the seat, which is great. But does mean you are dumping the cuttings on the ground which then needs to be manually picked up later to put in a bin etc
There is no pull start so you are completely reliant on the electric start which, when new, is very efficient. But need to keep the battery in good condition.
I love the cupholder!
