A Reasonable Bit of Kit
A reasonably good mower for the reduced price. The metalwork and engine are very good. It is let down by the plastics which feel and look cheap. The mulching blocker is a very tight fit (needing a lot of force to insert).
It doesn't have the feel of a top end mower, however, it starts very easily and with the front and rear wheels being inline, it gives a better edge to edge cutting.
The Grass Collector is disappointing. Firstly putting it together is not straightforward. It too suffers from the cheap plastically feel. Added to which is the poor attention to design detail. The collector isn't balanced when taking it off the mower when full. (Ideally, it should roll back preventing the cut grass falling out forward).
In summary - it is on par with other mowers for the same price tag.
