Well my Webb H12R just arrived.
It comes in a small box and it is fairly easy to assemble. The Grass box is a bit flimsy and tends to fall off if you tip the machine forward.
My first run was rubbish and so was the second and third. The reason I have discovered is two fold. Firstly my grass was slightly damp so the machine tended to skid. Secondly its too long.
After I had cut the grass with my petrol mower I found it fine to use and gave nice stripes. The problem is who wants to cut grass that is already cut!
I brought this machine to cut the small rows between my veg patch. I am going to have to get it cut very short with a spare flymo I have, (petrol mower won't fit) and then hopefully it should work fine on a little and often basis.
With regard the grass box, you probably won't need it as the grass will already be quite short when you cut it. I guess its really designed for ornamental fine lawns.
I'll try and report back in a few weeks and see how I am progressing.
