Compact, easy to assemble and lightweight as well as it lacks fumes and noise.
Sturdy handle design, easy to store due to a small footprint, easy to assemble and use.
The Bad
Expensive than gas models, inefficient for moist grass since its mobility will be limited and unsuitable for large lawns.
A difficulty faced in cutting overgrown and wet grasses and also has small wheels, so it cuts only when pushed fast.
Entirely manual, doesn't work well on sloppy topography and a bit more expensive compared to other models.
Doesn't cut tubular weeds, has no heft, blades aren't sharp and sometimes get stuck and have to be given a nudge.
Requires harder push to move through tall, thick grass and little bumps on the lawn tend to stop it to a sudden stop.
The Bottom line
It may not be an ideal lawn mover for moist grass and recommended for small and medium size lawns.
For a great lawn mower that lasts forever preferred for smaller yards on level ground.
For a flat lawn, this is the best lawn mower to use, and its quietness is a big plus.
Enhances the maneuverability and ease of finding storage space if one has a very small lawn.
No matter the size of the lawn provided it's not hilly, this mower can work effectively.
