lawn mower is made for a small yard (like mine). It's nice not having to worry about gas and oil and has started easily each time in use. the grass catcher seems to fill quite quickly (but my grass could just be too long)! If I could change anything I would make the connection from the grass catcher to the mower to metal hooks. Having to stop in the hot sun, dump the grass, then try to hook the plastic connections back can get aggravating, But I am sure I will get better at getting it connected and wouldn't trade it for anything.
We nicknamed our lawnmower Mean Joe Green, and the little guy lives up to it.
My husband was skeptical at first, our lawn was extremely long this past spring, but MJG went through it like a trooper.
The grass hasn't gotten that long again, but I have used it when the grass was a bit wet. Great results no matter what. The engine seems more than capable of tackling conditions that you would think would cause it to struggle in.
It's lightweight so it's not tiring to push, it's quiet (I always wear headphones, but I don't have to crank up the volume to hear over the motor), I love not fussing with a gas engine... Better for the environment too (always conscious of that living in a larger city).
I am really happy with the mower. Also have never ran over the cord (like my mother and husband swear I will do)
I baught this mower because it is light weight, small, easy to start, use and maintain, had a collection bag, and is quiet. I was not dissappointed at all!
I need a light machine that is easy to maintan and start by myself because my husband and I are old and we have injuries and limited physical abilities. I need a collection bag because it is physically difficult for us to rake. I need a small unit because we have huge pine trees in our yard and I need to mow between the surface roots. I need a quiet machine because my neighbor works nights and sleeps during the day. This machine is everything I need and want and it is more powerful and hardyy than I immagined it would be.
I thought I would have to rake up the pine cones and twigs before I mowed but this little maching picks up 99% of them.
It mowed right throught the tall thick grass and didn't even flinch.
The collection bag is just the right size. I can do a good sized section (about 10'x10') of the yard before I have to empty the bag. If the bag was bigger I wouldn't be able to lift it when it's full. When my hand starts to get tired fom holding the safety switch, it's time to empty the bag. It's prefect for me.
I have never been "brand loyal" before. This is the second item I have purchased from Sun Joe and I am now loyal to the brand and the company. I'm lookig forwad to winter so I can get some Snow Joe products too :)
I love this lawn mower! Easy directions, easy set up and easy go! In a matter of minutes I was mowing. The only issue I have is the tires are plastic. But I also live on a steep hill for a yard so because it was so light and plastic wheels, I'm fighting it all the way. If I had flat yard, man this would be a dream! I love that it's not as loud as gas lawnmowers or smelly like them too. I still give the mower 5 stars because my yard is to blame for the fight. Currently I'm on the search for a light rubber wheel that I can replace or rubber bands I can put around the tires for a little traction. Otherwise I guess I wait to win the lottery and buy a flatter yard! ;)
Easy to put together and cuts great. Great for our area. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
