Here's what I love about this lawnmower. It is very easy to use this mower on any type of surface where grass grows. The majority of my lawn is on a hill, so I have to guide the mower up and down the very steep slope in order to mow my grass. Using this mower makes a rather difficult job easier to do because of the lightweight structure of this unit. Performance it does a great job cutting my grass. I has several different types of grass on my property, which sometimes calls for different mowers to cut the grass. I have several lawnmowers, and I have only had to use this one this past summer. Handling It is very easy to handle this mower because it is lightweight an super easy to maneuver. Durability Very durable, as I have a steep hill in front of my home with crap grass that is somewhat different to cut, this does it effortlessly. Safety Very safe to use, I have experienced no safety issues when using this model as those areas that are potentially hazardous are pretty well covered. Ease of Use Easy to use. Engine Power Great horse power on this unit.
