Great Mower with Good Tight Turning Circle
Bought this for a 1000 sq metre garden with a few trees and objects to navigate. It has a great turning circle and is very easy to use. The cut is good as is the speed of the vehicle and it's highly controllable with the hydrostatic accelerator.
The grass box is easy to empty whilst sitting on the mower, as it a simple case of leaning back and pulling a lever to drop the clippings in a pile. The downside is that it doesn't have the option to lift off the grass box full and throw clippings into a wheely-bin.
Variable heights on the cutting blade are a good range, easy to engage and it cuts long damp grass well and quite close on the mid-range setting without clogging up. Care has to be taken when engaging the blade, as pulling the lever too quickly stalls the engine, but it only takes a couple of goes to get the knack of this.
The blade cannot be engaged in reverse so it's a case of disengaging the blade and reversing off obstacles, would be great if it did this automatically but I guess that would increase the price a lot.
Takes about 1.5 hours to cut the area I have and does that on 1 tank of fuel.
Overall very pleased with the purchase, it came fully assembled and ready to go from MowDirect and was delivered within 3 days on the day I asked for by a helpful delivery driver.
