I am a super petite woman...4'11 and 110 lbs. I fing that most lawn mowers are to bulky and are not easy to manuever! This makes it har for me to cut grass without feeling like a am going to pass out. However, the Yard Man is the BEST i have ever used. I could not believe how easy it was for me to get the job done. It is really easy to turn and lift. I never feel as if I need to quit because my arms hurt. I am able to quickly cut the parts of the yard that our tractor does not cut (we have 10 acres). I cut around the trees and by the house, and also the dog pen with the Yard Man and..ALL the way down the longgg driveway..BUT i can get it all done in one session! The only flaw is that if the grass is extremely thick the blade gets stuck. But, I just lift it up and it is good to go! I totally recommend this to everyone!
