Excellent So Far
We received our Lawnflite two weeks ago after our ancient Husqvarna stopped collecting the grass due to corrosion and the side tube collector kept falling off the whole time.
We have a young family and roughly 2 acres of lawn to mow. The lawn is pretty rough and bumpy as we're trying to reclaim it from a neglected field. The mower arrived on a pallet with a little fuel in it to get it going. The guy who delivered it was nice but said the type of pallet it was on was really meant for a fork-lift, so he struggled to get it off on his tailgate and wheelie lifting thing. He managed, although I don't think he would have if it had been at all soft ground.
The mower cuts brilliantly, and has many different cutting heights. The top one is very high which is great for us with our long lawn, and the lower ones cut a beautifully neat lawn. You sit quite high on it and if you're short like me (5ft 3") then depressing the clutch means I have to sit right forward to do it. The petrol fill up is see-through which is fantastic as you can see what you're doing when filling up.
The rear collector is simply fantastic compared to my old mower, and it collects very well if the grass is dry and if short and wet. If it does get blocked - for example with too long or very wet grass - it takes moments to clear and also moments to empty the collector too. It can drive pretty fast also making mowing quicker.
I can't comment on longevity, as its so new to us, but so far it seems excellent and I really hope it lasts for many years as its great. We will be gentle with it to ensure it does!
