Lawn Mower

Posted: 22/02/2015 at 11:46

Morning all, On the 13/10/2014  I said I would keep the people looking for a mower up to date on the one we had bought,Well after a season of use I can say its the best one we have had, I,ll put the details in below ,the best part for Kate as she is 5 feet 1 inch tall was the self propelled the easy pull start and the one lever that adjust all the wheels in one go, at the time I was unable to walk so Kate did the graft but now i,m not so bad and I find the mower perfect for an average size garden with uneven lawns, thats where the one lever adjuster comes into its own so quick.Right would I buy it again ,and remembering I looked at so many ,yes its a cracker hope this helps.
