I was skeptical at first, but after using this for the first time I am EXTREMELY happy with my purchase. I have a thick St augustine front lawn with Bahia in the back. This mower had more than enough power to cut my lawn. I have about 1/4 acre and was able to cut most of my lawn on the first battery. Having a holder on the mower for my backup battery was very convenient. 3/4 of the way through I stopped, had a quick battery change, and finished the job with ease. It's not self-propelled but it is so light that you don't need it. The VERY quiet operating noise is also a nice perk. Overall, I can't really think of anything that I don't like about the mower.
I bought this lawnmower last summer. I loved it. It's light and easy to push. Two batteries covered my 1/4-acre. However, after the winter, now the batteries won't hold a charge. It took 5 charges to finish the lawn the first time. It's really hard to keep up with the grass growth at this rate. If the batteries are still covered under warranty, they should be replaced for free.
We purchased this 2 years ago. First, it takes about 5 batteries to cut 7,000 sq feet of grass; then, exactly after 2 years and right after the warranty expired, the mower died. The worst thing isn't that the mower died, but the horrible customer service from Sears, trying to get someone to help us get it repaired. Dealing with them is like being on the phone in **** with customer service rejects and your punishment is dealing with them. This type of customer service has convinced me to hire lawn service professional help to cut my grass every two weeks and never spend a penny on a Sears product again, in my life.
Item is light and ez to handle, but it takes a button to start and it's very finicky sometimes taking a dozen tries to get it to work. It bogs to a stop in my thick zoysia grass or taller grass. batteries don't last nearly as long as they claim so like most products ***** your needs before purchase. Good light duty mower for the $140 I paid but for the $450 reg price it's a 1 star or less.
This mower dies every time I try to use it. I have to keep starting it over and over. Sometimes, it won't restart until it cools down. I have a small yard with sparse grass but when I can keep mowing with it, the battery dies and I have to replace it with the second battery. With the size of my yard, one battery should do it.
This is half the weight of my Craftsman front wheel drive gas mower. Easier to maneuver, no gas, oil, stabilizer, fumes, noise, and maintenance. Wave of the future. The two batteries are enough to do my lawn (5000 SF).
This mower is great
