Cheap enough to buy
Very poor. The old models were far better, this is just rubbish.
Cuts very poorly, knocks the grass down rather than cuts it, and if the grass is even slightly damp, it won't lift the cuttings into the hopper. It also doesnt cut the grass level - one side is always higher than the other.
Sadly there seem no alternatives out there. The Bosch offering is the same machine with a different motor.
I have had mine several years and long to find another better electric cylinder mower. Have had to replace the same parts that keep breaking, a little plastic axle clamp on the roller.
Conclusion - A dreadful design let down by poor quality build.
This leaves a big gap in the market for another manufacturer to offer a far better cylinder machine
