    good design, bad product
    mows fine with the exception that leaves a trail of cut grass on the right side whether mulching or bagging. Big disappointment considering the price of $400.00!

    Battery powered/low noise.


    Leaves trail of cut grass on right side, mulching or bagging!

    Great Mower. Couldn't be easier to use.
    I have a small yard less than a 1/4 of an acre, and this is the perfect mower for it. I can actually usually get to complete mows out of a single charge. I've had the mower for 2+ years and have no performance issues.

    No maintenance, easy to adjust height of mower. Even though this is human propelled, it is a light mower and easy to maneuver.


    The bag is not the easiest to slide in and out.

    Real and incompetent home-owner loves this mower! :D
    I'm an ill-equipped home-owner in (what I consider) a rural area. It's quiet--and, sometimes, horses walk down my street. I'm swell with computers, but, as I said first, ill-equipped (both know-how and tools) to manage homecare. I also hate bugs. And my gas mower was awful. With this in mind, it has been very hard for me to maintain my lawn. It was hard for me to find time to make it out--and when I finally did, my Florida lawn was usually pretty thick. Gas mower would constantly struggle and putt and sputter. I was always afraid of dying--but was more afraid of being judged by my neighbors for my awful lawn. So, enter electric mower. I will keep this short, as I'm running out of room. Biggest concern was power, especially with my "REAL LAWN." Besides two points where it choked a little (one really thick clump of grass, and one ant hill), I had no issue. For proof, feel friend to poke me on Facebook. Robert Thomas. Facebook nickname is Scipore.

    Quiet, light, no vibration, no smells, strong enough for my "REAL LAWN"


    Bees. The spinning blade sounds like bees.

    Incompetent home-owner loves this.
    If there is any doubt as to whether or not I am being paid to submit this, you can find me on Facebook. My name's Robert Thomas, and my Facebook.. nickname?... thing is Scipore. Would be happy to show pictures. Thirty-something on my first home. I'm swell when it comes to computers, but I'm awful when it comes to home maintenance. Had a pre-owned gas-powered mower that, because of my "OH GOD BUGS!!!" mentality, along with rains/humidity of Florida, my lawn went to hell. Friend suggested an electric mower. Ease of maintenance, easy to use, only, like, two parts to replace. Perfect for a baddie like me. Only concern was whether or not it had enough power to cut my lawn. For context, grass was tall, thick, and wet 'cause, again, Florida. I think I own 1/3rd of an acre. Besides two spots where it jerked a little (one really thick clump, and one secret ant hill), the little guy worked like a charm. W

    Quiet, no vibration, strong enough for my awful lawn, light-weight. And I don't really care about the recharge, 'cause I'd hate to spend more than an hour mowing the lawn anyway.


    It sounds like a bee. I hate bees.

    Great mower
    Great mower. One problem out of the box in that the bail bar was not set in the switch holder and mower would not work. Took the bar out and bent it to fit and works well. Small yard and the mower did a great job on tall grass.

    Quiet! I have had fans that were louder.


    Build quality, QA or packaging let the mower ship not working. Had to monkey the bail bar to get it to work.

    AWEFUL!!! Do Not Waste Your Money
    My experience is exactly like eyeyoke's review and most other reviews. I have a very small yard in the front and back that use to take 20 min in the front and 30 min in the back. I mow regularly in South Dakota so the grass does get too long. This mower has increased my mow time by 3 times. Forget about bagging because the narrow chute gets clogged in one pass. It is beyond frustrating and I have already posted it on Craigslist. I want a mower with a wide chute again. If it would actually bag grass and not leave a line of clumpy grass everywhere it would be a great mower for me. But having to remow the same area 3 times to pick up the clippings is enough. Please spare yourself the pain.

    Quiet. Light. Electric


    Narrow bagging chute clogs instantly.

    Great Lawn Mower for Small Yard
    Works beautifully. Be sure to charge immediatly after using and never leave the key in it. If you store any battery in a discharged state it will kill it. This mower mowes my 1200sq ft lawn without a problem. When it is wet or too long, just easily one lever adjust to a higher level. So worth not having to use gas of pull the cord!! My wife is very sensitive to odors including carbon monoxide. This is a great solution for us. I feel good about not contributing to the noise and fumes. I would buy it again.

    Its Electric! What more is there to say.


    It can bog down when the grass is real wet of way too long.

    Worst Mower I have ever used... And I have used many in my life. This one is Garbage
    Many major issues with this product. This review applies to normal mowing conditions on an average lawn... Mowed regularly and allowed to dry before mowing. 1. The mower is NOT very POWERFUL. 2. It takes 3-4 passes to cleanly cut the lawn increasing the time it takes to mow the lawn and wearing out the battery before it's finished. The mower leaves a stip of UNCUT GRASS right in the middle of the cut path which requires multiple passes. 3. The MULCHING & BAGGING is AWEFUL. First of all the mower is week and does not throw the grass into the bag very well. Second, the chute which leads to the bag is narrow and clogs quickly EVEN WHEN GRASS IS DRY. and lastly, the BAG, when installed, slopes steeply toward the mower so IF and WHEN grass does get thrown into the bag it all just falls back toward the front and clogs the chute even worse. 4. LOTS of CLUMPED GRASS LEFT BEHIND because of the above reasons. Plan on spending hours raking left over grass.

    Cheap light weight materials (LOTS OF PLASTIC) used makes it easy to put this in my truck and return it.


    EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS MOWER IS GARBAGE. It is evident that this product was not tested on real lawns by real people. I am tired of the BULL CRAP about products being "GREEN" when it clearly is a marketing SCAM to sell GARBAGE at HIGH PRICES.

    So far so good
    Product took 10 seconds to unpack, very easy. Charged the unit for about 6 hours and cut the backyard. Very quiet, moved easily, no issues. I used the mulching attachment. I've been told wet grass it doesn't do well with. The battery is heavy, so be aware. I noticed in one area of my lawn where there is a lot of thatch, it had trouble and the blade slowed down almost to a stop. I raised the cutting level slightly and no issue. On regular grass, not any issue.

    Quiet Easy to adjust height Stores easily No gas


    Has a bit of trouble with thatch or thick grassy areas (very thick). Battery is heavy.
