It’s light, quiet, & cuts my grass very well. Mulching is a treat; my old (dead) electric mower didn’t mulch, and for me hauling bags of cut grass away was always the worst part of mowing. I narrowed my search to mowers that did not have a bagging option, and this was the lightest available with this size cut width and mower. It does its job, much easier than with my older, heavier, louder mower.
When you pull this one backwards, the safety flap across the back gets pulled under the mower; I expect it to break off eventually and need replacement, but that looks simple enough. Yes, the directions say don’t pull it backwards, but that’s not realistic on my odd-shaped lawn. Build quality seems pretty good, so the flap may last longer than I expect, and it’s not a big deal. So far so good, and I have a manual reel mower made by the same company that has held up well for many years
