I bought one of these new earlier this year with the "Combi" deck and grass collector. It was supposed to be an upgrade from my old T1600 now 12 years old. It was sold to me as quite capable of not only producing a good finish on my lawn but also of cutting full height long orchard grass of which I have about 1 acre. (I checked this info directly with Westwoods who confirmed it by phone). This deck is really intended as a mulcher but even with the removable baffle plate taken out the blade… Read Full Review

Owned T1800 for 4 seasons from new.

The Westwood T1800 lawn mower is a very good bit of kit. As domestic sit down lawn mowers go you don't get better. It's able to deal with virtually anything and the brush system for grass collection is much better than the alternatives. Be careful with the paintwork when washing it down as the paint to the rear deflector panel flaked off when I jet washed (fairly gently) the grass off. It's also a bit loud so mowing at 7am on a Sunday morning is not a good idea… Read Full Review
