Blades short lived
Hard to push on damp grass
I chose the Qualcast Easi-Lite 28 Hover lawn mower as our (fairly small) garden is somewhat uneven. Figuring a tilting hover mower would suit the lawn, we went for this model and have regretted it ever since.
I suppose it does the job, but on the bumps and ruts it can be awfully hard to push, and I am a big strong chap! When the grass gets damp things just get worse, and the thing bogs down in the slightest of dips in the grass. I typically find two of the weedy plastic cutting blades are needed each time I mow, regardless of whether I find any unexpected objects in the grass. Hover it over the path as the other reviewer suggests and you can make that three blades. No wonder they come in packs of 20!
Having owned it for five years, my one wish is that it would break down. However, I can report that leaving it out in the rain didn't achieve this, so reliability is a plus.
