Overall this was an okay mower. We had this mower at our old home which was mostly level. The mower does great on level land but at the slightest hint of an incline, it goes all to pieces. I felt as if I was struggling to steer and control the mower whenever I went over the slightest bump or hill. On flat, level land the mower does good. I feel like it lacks any real power though because it seemed to just go so slow compared to our mower now. I could finish the old yard in about two hours with this mower, whereas with my new mower I am done in about an hour and twenty minutes. Forty minutes is a long time to shave off due to using a different mower. If I could've did it over again, I would have opted for a more powerful, more sturdy and stable mower. This one did okay, again, on flat and level land but it was hard to do anything else with it without feeling like I was going to lose control or bog the engine down. Performance It was really only suitable for flat land. It didnt do great with any hills or inclines. Handling The handling is okay on flat land. If I was even and inch or two off the ground on one side, the handling felt like a struggle to keep the machine running smoothly. Durability I just didn't like this mower overall because it couldnt stand up to hills or bumps or any inclines. I ended up finishing my lawn with a pushmower nearly everytime. Safety When I mowed the lawn, sometimes I felt as if I was going to tip the mower over on the slightest hint of a hill. Ease of Use It's easy to use but it isn't as powerful as it needs to be and it isn't any good at any sort of incline. If one side is even two inches higher than the other, the mower is just too overwhelmed. Engine Power I always felt as if I was struggling to get speed with this mower.
