The worst lawnmower I ever bought. I researched the strengths and weaknesses of cylinder mowers compared with the far more common rotary style. I chose a cylinder because it is supposed to provide a superior cut, however this mower doesn't cut the grass well at all - it flattens it. Especially if your grass is getting even a little bit long. I had to go across the lawn twice to try to finish the job, and even then it would leave the wiry long tall grasses uncut and looking a mess. I was embarrassed to be seen using this dreadful device to be honest. The build quality is bad. Even the stickers on it came off. After two years, as the grass box filled up, it dumped the contents underneath the mower and the machine then died. The motor stopped turning the blades. I'm not sad to see it go. I believe there is a reason why rotary mowers outsell cylinders by a long way. Perhaps if you have bowling green quality turf then a cylinder will be for you, but not a cheap one like this. Do not buy this - save yourself the money that this thing costs and spend it on a rotary mower.
