Yes, a bar for the self propel and a bar for the standard safety shutoff when you letgo. Comparable to a gas mower I these features. Plus you can adjust the walking speed.

Absolutely Mind Blowing
This thing is in an entire league of its own. I had my doubts but after buzzing through knee high wet grass like it wasnt even there im here to tell you that youll regret not buying it sooner. Four 5AH batteries and a double quick charger is worth morth than $300 on their own. Take the deal.

This is my first lawn mower. It's convenient to have a cordless machine. We used the charger (sold separately) to charge the batteries. The mower came with 4 batteries, but it only requires two at a time to run the unit (if you put in all 4, it just doubles the battery life). It took around half an hour or 45 minutes to charge the pair of batteries. While mowing, a pair of batteries lasted for about 75 minutes of on/off use, which was plenty of time, so we're happy with that. The mower works well overall and has lots of features. For example, you can swap out the grass basket and mulcher plug, and it has different speed settings for the battery push assist. It's easy to adjust the mowing height. The biggest inconvenience of this unit is that the screws that hold the power/mower on switch to the rest of the mower keep falling off. I don't know if that's a peculiarity of our unit, or if that's common to this product. So, we're going to get longer screws or a couple bolts or something to securely fasten it in place. Otherwise, everything seems high quality.

This is a heavy duty battery powered mower, quiet and powerful. The mower itself is built for durability. It is self-propelled which offsets the actual weight of the mower and significantly reduces the pushing effort. The self propelled speed is variable. The self propelled control is separate from the mower blade control so you can move the mower without engaging the blade. Assembly is easy. Switching from the mulching mode to bagging mode and vise-versa is quick and simple. It cuts grass as effective as a gas powered mower, but without all the noise, smell, and mess of a gasoline engine. I did test the cutting efficiency and power on tall damp grass using the mulching mode. The heavy grass would periodically clump and pause the blade until the mower was moved off the clump, similar to a gas powered mower. There was really no difference on dry routine lawn cutting. The handle is “fixed” and cannot be “folded” down onto the body of the mower for storage. That would be a nice feature for smaller storage spaces, but not enough of a negative to affect my rating. The mower deck is made from commercial grade steel and the mower itself weighs about 94 lbs. There is a “pick up” or “carry” handle built into the mower to assist with a manual lifting, if necessary. The battery compartment will hold four batteries, but only two batteries are used at one time. Two batteries will easily handle an average ¼ acre residential lawn, but if the area is “hilly” more battery power will be used to power the self propel feature. The second set of batteries is optional but useful if cutting a ½ acre residential lot or a hilly area. If using a four battery arrangement and the first set is depleted, simply turn a switch to engage the second set. If you only have two batteries, stop and recharge, which will take about 30 – 45 minutes. I did not notice much difference between the regular running mode and the quiet mode. Both are much more quiet than a gas engine. This battery powered mower is more expensive than most gasoline powered mowers but changing from gas to electric power is also associated with other motivations than just the price of the mower. With that framework, this mower does the job, is environmentally more friendly, clean and quiet and eliminates the gas can.

How many ways can I say awesome! I have to admit to being hard core skeptical about electric mowers. Thinking they are just for small level yards. Nope, I was very wrong. This thing takes on hills, and thick tall grass. Not just that but stacked up against and all wheel drive mulching mower, it beats it hands down. In just mulching form, without side discharge or rear bagger, it took on thick grass that would stall a gas mower. It's extremely safe to leave sit, provided you follow directions and remove the batteries and key. It has the same safety features of a gas mower. Yes, it's heavy too. It does auto adjust the cutting speed for thicker grass. And the big difference from a gas mower is the walking speed it adjustable. From an old man shuffle right up to a full run just about. While it's not wisper quiet, it's still a lot less than gas mower. You do have to watch it on hills as it rolls real easy and unless the drive is engaged, it will roll backwards on a hill. As with any mower, cautions must be observered. And while it may not handle limbs or walnuts, not recommended for any mower. It does handle thick tall grass and goes up hill. That surprised me bit time, and with the double batteries you can easily flip a switch and keep going even with a larger yard. Very nice and very surprised. For those who hesitate, perfect Christmas or birthday present. Not only better, but better for the environment too. Really well made for years of use. While there is much more I can say, like how easy it is to adjust the height. I'll let the pictures and video speak for me.

Design flaw
As stated by other reviewers, the height adjustment will drive you crazy, prolong your mowing, and cut deep holes in your lawn. The mower shuts down when this happens and you have to wait for about 15 seconds for it to start running again. I contacted Makita and haven't heard from them. Good thing I kept the box.

Would be great, but...
Knowing that Makita has a reputation for quality, I purchased this mower hoping to finally make the jump into electric outdoor power equipment. While there was a lot to like about this mower, any positives were overshadowed by poor QA. As you can see in the images, the height adjustment has very little to no tension and thus does not stay in place. I didn't notice this at first and instead, selected my height and started mowing. ever slight bump i hit, the deck would drop all the way down and scalp my lawn. After a couple times of this I pulled it aside to make sure there wasn't something I was doing wrong. From what I could tell, it seemed that the rear shaft holder on the right rear was not flush and therefore added distance between the wheel and the deck, which caused there to be no tension so that the height adjuster wouldn't stay in place. As I waited roughly 3 weeks for this mower to come in and of course badly needed to mow my lawn, I strapped the height adjustment handle to the mower to hold it in place. These are the pros and cons I found: Pros: - Self Propelled function is very powerful. The actual rubber tires coupled with the self propelled drive on this mower function beautifully. This is a heavy mower and I have a hilly yard, yet the mower would drag you uphill with ease. - Powerful Motor! Gone are the days of the gas mower bogging down and dying in heavy grass. My lawn was partially wet, and very thick. This mower only increases RPMs when it senses a heavier load. - Sturdy. after bolting the handle in place (very little assembly) this mower feels like it would last a lifetime. It is very solid with no wiggle in the handle whatsoever. Cons: - Does not fold for storage. The handle bolts in place on the lower and upper portions. If you wanted to take advantage of the vertical storage capabilities of electric mowers, then you'd have to remove and replace 4 bolts each time. - Height Adjustment not usable. As previously mentioned above, this was definitely the biggest issue with the mower and seemed to be one of quality assurance. Worth mentioning: - Battery Life seemed less than advertised; however, it was probably due to thick, wet grass, and having to constantly stop and try to figure out the height adjustment issue. Either way, for 0.4 acres it used one battery bank (2 18v's) fully and about 1/3 of the other using the mulch setting. - Motor runs fairly quiet at low RPMs until it senses a heavy load and ramps up speed. Seems to do a good job Overall I'm giving it 3 stars as Makita has the makings of a work horse; however, their customer service instructed me to return the unit saying that they believe the deck was bent, and therefore not fixable. I do not believe that was the case, and I really wanted to keep the mower and was hoping to make the fix myself with some instructions. Also, after calling in, it seems that this is a frequent issue with the XML08 mower, and would therefore not recommend.

Used 2 times cutting St Augustine grass on 1/3 acre. Batteries more then adequate for the job. Love how easy to use. No cord to pull. Love that environmentally friendly. Only draw back is can not mulch and bag at the same time so have to empty the bag more frequently. Overall very happy

It's super quiet, easy to use, and has great build quality. I don't think it cuts as well as my Honda HRX but it cuts well enough. I really only have two complaints that others have had as well. (1) The drive system takes too long to get up-to-speed; I'm learning to engage the system before I need it so I'm not waiting around. (2) The blade speed increases when the mower is under load, I wish I could leave it at the higher speed. I can finish my 1/4+ acre yard on a maintenance cut with the 4 batteries using the drive system. My wife isn't quite as efficient and she needed a recharge. I ended up buying a leaf blower with the 4 battery bundle; needed the leaf blower and having the extra batteries puts me in good shape.
