Neuton CE 6.2 Mower: About me and my lawn: As a new homeowner, I bought this lawnmower about a year ago and it is the only lawnmower I have ever used. I've probably used it about 20 times now. I have a large lawn, under 1/3 acre, but large. It is not really a lawn, but more of a meadow that just sprang up one day out of the mud and grows at an unbelievably fast rate. I live in Texas where I can either mow the lawn in the dark, in the rain, or during the day and risk heat exhaustion. I noticed that most of my neighbors had riding lawnmowers, but I thought they were just lazy. I've discovered that they are smarter than me; any push mower here is a waste of money. I'm going to have to resort to hiring a lawn mowing service. Pros: When the mower was new, it cut through tall dry grass very well. When I called customer service to tell them that the battery was leaking, they sent me a replacement with no hassle. It is very easy to use - easy to start, easy to use, easy to maintain. Virtually fool proof. This would probably be a great mower if you have a small yard in California. Cons: My first battery leaked. My new battery worked well for awhile, but already seems to be losing power. It lasted less than 30 minutes today and that was with frequent stops. No indicator light to show whether or not the battery is charged. Battery will not hold charge when unplugged (you can't charge it, unplug it from the charger for a day, and then use it). Takes a long time to recharge. Small grass catcher bag. Heavy. Expensive. Attachments and additional parts are also expensive. Really bad with wet grass (it gets jammed). Ask yourself: When am I going to mow the lawn - will it be dry at that time? (Electric mowers aren't supposed to be used on wet grass.) How much time am I going to spend mowing in one day? (If it's more than 45 minutes, this is not a good mower for you.) What are my neighbors doing and why?
