Reasonable value but a bit tatty
I know it's a budget mower...and if the engine keeps going and I can cut the grass for a few years that will be fine.
However, just for the record, there were a number of problems when the machine came out of the box.
- One of the 'arms' to which you attache the handle was bent...and the paint chipped, clearly where it had been struck or dropped. I managed to straighen it enough to fix the handle on.
- The cable grips barely do their job...one was broken and is now held by tape
- The grass box does not fit properly. One of the 'hooks' has to be pulled to the side to make it work.. The box also comes off too readily when cutting.
- The machine is very difficult to start. I am tall and have a long reach...I can also use considerable strength to pull the cord at least three times to start it. My wife, or a smaller person would struggle to start it.
