Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for demanding tasks
Honda engines are well known for their high quality. The 160 cc engine of this lawn mower is very reliable and is powerful enough to efficiently take care of lawn that hasn’t been touched for quite a while.
Pro Cutting process is highly efficient
The cutting process is very efficient, thanks to the unique twin blade system of this lawn mower. The upper blade cuts off the top of the grass while a larger blade finishes the cut to your set height.
Pro Capable of handling uneven, rough terrains or overgrown grass
If the terrain is rough or the grass is very tall, you can easily change the height of the mower by setting it to one of six positions. It can be set to be up to 4" away from the ground, enough to go over very uneven surfaces and cut down overgrown grass.
Pro Starting the mower is easy
While lots of gas lawn mowers come with a manual choke system, this has an auto choke system that works flawlessly and eases the starting of the mower.
Pro Comfortable to use
The mower is comfortable to use, as the handles are well cushioned and don’t feel hard or slippery.
Pro Sturdy, durable wheels
This mower's wheels are made from high-quality rubber. Those are, by far, more durable than the regular plastic wheels which can be found on cheaper units.
Pro Pushes itself
This lawn mower has a self-propulsion system that can be set to speeds up to 4 mph. This significantly eases the job and makes the mower suitable for older people.
Pro Switching between modes is simple
It is easy it is to switch between mowing modes (mulching or bagging), as all you need to do is flip a lever on the mower, and you are good to go.
Pro Doesn't need to emptied often
The mower comes with a very large grass bag (2.4 bushel). It is almost one and a half times larger than what you get with some other mowers, which means less time spent emptying it.
Con Regular maintenance is needed
This trimmer does require some maintenance to stay operational for a long time. You'll have to monitor the oil levels, occasionally clean the filters, and do external cleaning to prevent it from rusting.
This is not a sound-friendly lawn mower. It can reach a noise level of 98 dB that can be very disruptive.
Con Hard to clean
There is no quick wash port, so you have to flip it over to clean underneath. It is a massive lawnmower, so this may not be a simple task.
Con Difficult to carry around
Weighing 85 pounds, it is not the lightest lawn mower to carry around. Electric alternatives are almost half as light.
