As we have a large garden we chose this traditional model and in the 3 years we have had it we have found it reliable, easy to use but somewhat heavy.
Starting this mower is easy - either by electric start or by hand crank toggle. You can adjust the speed of the rotor by use of the accelerator and choke so that you can walk at the pace you wish. IT has an assisted forward motion handle which can help move the mower along without too much effort. It has a Briggs and Stratton Quantum XTS 45 engine and uses unleaded petrol and SAE 30 engine oil.
We find we can give a reasonable good strip, and adjusting the height of the cut is reasonably easy. Heavy growth as expected should be cut on the highest setting and sometimes causes problems. Removing the grass bag is also easy.
We would recommend it but may have chosen a sit down model!
