First Use Review
I ordered the Efco equivalent machine on line and was contacted by Mowdirect within the hour to be told it was out of stock but this was the same machine with a different badge. Arrived by courier the next day and I had it assembled and in use an hour later.
Purchaser needs to provide oil for the machine. I particularly wanted a corrosion resistant deck as I live near the coast.
It is a powerful machine and cut my very long and thick grass with ease.. The controls are very simple and the grass box is easily fitted and removed for emptying. Meets all the advertising claims exactly. Easy to push along and the self propulsion works without loss of cutting performance, although the pace is a little slow. Starts first pull and is reasonably quiet. Single knob height adjustment is very convenient.
Comes with a mulch plug that I have yet to use.
Overall, this seems to be a robust machine with few frills but cuts grass efficiently at a reasonable cost.
