This is an excellent mower. It starts immediately, and is quiet in operation compared to my previous machine. It cuts very well indeed and has a good range of heights that are very easy to select.
I use my mower as garden vacuum, collecting grass cutting as well as other things such as pruning cuttings, and this is by far the best machine I have EVER used for this. It packed the collection bag front to back, top to bottom and so hugely reduced the number of visits to the clippings pile.
The only thing I would have liked to see are off centre lever / cams to lower the top handle (you have to undo the wing nuts) as I found this useful for transport on my old mower (no prize for guessing where the cams are now).
I can't recommend this enough, and especially at this price.
On Mow Direct, ordering and payment were easy and the machine arrived on time, and so first class really.
