No matter how small you piece of grass at home, a little mower makes no difference than a big mower.
Its all about the cut quality you get.
Sure, if you have 20 Sq ft of grass in your back garden, a huge 7 gang Tractor driven unit is not going to benefit you.
But buying this, miniscule mower will be about the same value to you.

Reason being?

Its just too darn small to do anything.
If you have more than 20 sq ft of grass, you will be there forever.

It has no grass collection facility. Leaves what it does cut on the floor.

It has plastic blades that snap, fall off and generally dont cut a thing.

It comes in a beautiful shade of Flymo Orange.

It takes up a very minute amount less space than its bigger brothers in your shed such as the power mowers from Black and Decker and even the bigger Flymos.
In fact, they make one model almost exactly the same size as this one but with Metal blades.

Plus points would be its weight. While I do not condone children using mowers, it is light enough for smaller adults to use. People who may have difficulties lifting heavy objects could benefit from it.

It also has a safety feature in its starter trigger. Its made "Ambidextrous". You can use either your left hand or right hand to pull it.

Plastic blades mean safer mowing. Less likely to cut the cable or your toes off with this mower.

But thats about it for advantages.

I was so dissapointed with the cut of my Mower, I took it back and bought a Black and Decker mower instead. It is much more powerful and gives a nice cut.

I would not reccomend this mower.
