… in a word, SUCK. I bought one last week. We’ve gotten a lot of rain lately, and the weeds that I call a back yard were quite tall. Way too tall for the reel mower that I’ve been using since the demise of my robot, Beetle, early last year.
Even with a fresh, sharp blade, the cut isn’t right. Yeah, it makes everything roughly the same height, but it’s not even close to as neat and clean as when using either Beetle or the reel mower. It was nice to be able to get everything in one pass, and I’ll continue to use it for the back. The front and sides, however, will get reel mower treatment.
