My father bought this mower for my grandfather for Father's Day. Since my grandfather is a hard working man, I have been working on his yard for him. This mower is a gem! It does an amazing job even when on full speed. His yard has a few small hills and they are no issue. I save over an hour using this mower as opposed to his previous. The blade is still just as sharp as when he first got it. Getting that fresh, even cut is easy every time; turns and rotations are absolutely NO issue. Very useful and helpful product. I am going to buy the exact same one next summer for my yard!
