Questions & Answers

Can this mower be used commercially

Asked by: JR
The mower seems to be tough enough to handle the pounding it may receive as a commercial mower, however I have only owned mine a short time and have only about 12 hours on the machine. (So why am I answering? HOME DEPOT asked me to.) The one thing I do not like about this mower, is the front end height adjustments could be much easier than a wing nut and bolt. The rear height adjustments are done with a fast level - why not do that in the front too??? Otherwise the mower is awesome, cuts well and saves me 30 minutes each time I cut my 1/2 acre residential yard, with hills I might add.

What's the ideal coverage of acreage for this? I'm on half an acre plot. Will this manage well on that size?

Asked by: Nick
Yes. We have same size lot & the job took less time w/regular gas mower.

Asked by: ace
Box was about 42"L x 26Wx30"H, again an estimate. I have a Suburban, but have ha hitch hall. It fitted on it. It should fit in most trunks, but the bag would need to be put in the car.

I have not had a chance to use it (want to mulch a bunch of leaves) but the temp is below freezing and I havent even tried to "crank" it. Looks nice, Im confident it will do the job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost good. The caster wheel assembly is junk. The wing nut holding the caster wheels is plastic, had to replace it and the front height adjustment is a pain. Oh and the grass bag doesn't hold much. All other features works well, push to start, cutting, self propelled comfort speed..
