My husband and I have had this mower for a few months now and I am still unsure of where I stand with it. There are certain things that I like and certain things that I do not like. I like that I feel as if this mower is environmentally friendly because it uses no oil and no gas. It runs on electric which is good in my books. I do not like that this mower is corded. Rarely do I mow the grass but when I do I get so paranoid that I am going to run the cord over and break the entire thing. Aside from that, I'm a small girl and I can easily push this thing around the yard which is helpful. Performance It preforms fairly well. The mower has multiple height settings so there is something for everyone. Handling Being a small girl I can easily push this around the yard. It isn't over powering and doesn't require me to put any extra "oomph" in it to get it around the yard. Durability It seems that it is fairly durable as long as you do NOT run over the cord. Safety It's a mower, make sure you're taking safety precautions and you will be fine Ease of Use Very easy and it is nice to not have to pull on a cord really hard to get it started.
