This is my first lawnmower I have purchased for myself, to go along with the first house I have ever purchased. Of course, I have used plenty of gas powered mowers in the past, so I’m well familiar with how they operate. This Greenworks mower is just as good, except it’s much quieter, much easier to start, (no starting cord to yank on) and MUCH easier to maintain. No gas, no oil, no spark plugs to worry about. It easily handles grass and weeds. I live in the Northwest, in Washington State, and it rains here a lot. Which means, if you wait for the grass to be totally dry, often times it’s grown pretty tall, especially in the Spring. This mower cut it right down, no problem. In my side yard, the grass had gotten really tall, and there were tons of weeds and dandelions. This mower ate them right up, didn’t bog down once. Although I did have to empty the bag more frequently, of course. Also, it’s super easy to adjust the height; just move one control and it goes up or down as you wish.The one and only thing that takes some getting used to is keeping track of the extension cord. It loves to get tangled up and catch on things. It’s kind of a trade-off. I don’t have to keep the gas and oil full, but I do have to roll up a 75 foot cord when I’m done. I’m careful to watch and make sure that cord doesn’t get under the mower.Overall, there are far more pluses than drawbacks; I’m very happy with this mower, and I would buy it again.
