Best I have bought
This is a replacement for a rotary Flymo, which was heavy, cumbersome, noisy and vibrated badly. I ended up using it only as a lawn vacuum cleaner after cutting with a manual cylinder mower.
The Mountfield Princess is the complete opposite... smooth, easy to handle, quiet and vibration free. I especially appreciate the well-balanced lifting-handle on the body of the machine, which makes shed storage and garden steps navigation straightforward.
The 'mulch cut' mowing option with the 'shoe' in place when delivered is as good as a my cylinder mower, especially on a dry lawn; with an excellent low cut, very fine cuttings, no mess and no need for the grass box (but I do like a bowling-green finish, so your mileage may vary).
The wheels are slightly inset, so the rotary blade cuts almost edge to edge. It is light-weight so the wheels do not dig out divets on the turn, but the back roller still gives the stripe effect. The only feature missing is a cable reel as the cable is not detachable. All in all, highly recommended.
