DOES WHAT IT SAYS.................,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black & Decker GD300 30 cm Lawnraker (DIY & Tools)
I owned a Black and Decker Lawnraker for 18 years until it gave up recently, due to debris getting into the motor compartment and burning the motor out. The product was unservicable due to lack of access, but as it was used only twice a year it worked and was acceptable.
Because of the competitive price, and the positive reviews I decided on another.
This is a different animal altogether -
1. The grass box is foldable and is therefore easy to store.
2. The grass box does not jump off the raker when in use. I have 3 medium sized lawns and it did not dislodge once during the first use.
3. To remove grass from the motor compartment one simply removes 4 screws from the top plate, blow out any dried grass inside, and replace top plate.
4. It is light to handle, and throws the grass into the the grassbox, which the previous one did not.
Apart from the short lead (I replaced with a longer lead and a waterproof plug/socket) it is, for the price a good piece of kit.
I would have given it 5 stars, but I don't actually 'LOVE' it !!
