We've had one for a year. It is a waste of time and money, AVOID. It doesn't cut grass, it tears it. It will only hover when the moon flights with certain planets, or it is on very dry flat grass which has only just been cut.
The smallest of stones bends the tin foil blade, which should really be called anything but, a blade implies it cuts, this tears the grass and leaves a terrible cut.
It takes longer to clean up after the mower than it does to cut with it as it sprays grass everywhere, a feature they claim promotes growth. Personally I think it was a cock up they never bothered fixing at the design stage and passed on to the sales people to come up with a gimmick.
The grass collector is abysmal, anymore than 5 blades of grass and it requires emptying.
Its too heavy to push and when it doesn't hover, ie most of the time, it rips and pulls away at the lawn. If their has been any rain in the past week the problem is compounded.
My lawn has never looked in such a abysmal state, we have patches of mud everywhere.
Unfortunately we bought it the end of last season so we didn't have chance to take it back, can't wait to get its replacement. Fingers crossed it will break again soon and force my hand.
