“Get a hover mower?”

Written on: 01/02/2012 by Eric-Montemayor (3 reviews written)

Maybe my experience with this will improve as I get used to it.
But it started off badly because the assembly instructions, printed on a scrap of paper, are pathetic. And wrong. There are screws supplied to atttach the cable tidy, but no way of screwing them into the two halves of the bit of plastic. I was in a seriously bad mood by the time I'd got it working. Everything feels crudely made. I just hope it's because it's tough.

The cable. 15m sounds a lot, but they may as well give you a metre because most people are still going to need an extension.

There's an 'easy height adjuster' on the side of the mower. Except that it isn't, because once again, it's very crude and stiff.

The motor's nice and quiet, I'll give it that, and I guess it cuts well enough.

I didn't manage to get any stripes on my lawn and I suspect that you can't have your cake and eat it: it's a very lightweight mower. That roller probably doesn't press hard enough because of that.

Oh and when you detach the grass box, half the grass falls out.
I wish I'd bought a hover mower.
