    Review ratings uptdead 08-27-2012Forgive the length of this review it is intended to be what I was looking for (comprehensive information) before I bought my own.If you’re paying attention and have the right wrench, it shouldn’t take more than about 5 or 10 minutes to assemble. Adjusting the blades takes another five minutes. Then you can start playing with it. I say playing because this isn’t work. It’s too much fun to be work. Strange, but true.I learned quickly that the ease with which it is pushed through and cuts grass depends proportionately on how much of that grass’s height you cut at one time. Reviews and research say that you should never cut more than 1/3rd the grass’s height at a time. They tell you it’s for the health of the grass. It is also for the health of the person pushing the mower. Get the mower set too low, and it’s not very easy (or fun) to push. Get it set too high, and it’s super easy, but nothing happens. Get it set just right, and there’s light resistance, and it’s going to town.A good idea is to set it to cut off between 1/2 and 1/3rd of the total grass height for the first pass, whichever is more. Then keep lowering the cutting height 1/2 to 1 at a time and keep making passes until you get a lot of resistance pushing it when you lower it any further. Then, wait a couple days, and go out again and mow at the height you had trouble with previously. Keep doing this until your grass is where you want it. From there, it’s a breeze to keep up with.I can’t believe I was paying $70 a month to have someone come in and mow my lawn when I could have been using this. It’s so simple and easy!Here’s my assessment. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the worst and 10 being the best:Is it easy to assemble? Yes. 9/10. Just follow the simple directions. The only way to make it easier would be to have it come pre-assembled, but they don’t do that because it makes for a much smaller box if you assemble the handle yourself.Is the handle comfortable? Yes! 10/10. The design allows you to hold it in various different ways. I like holding it in such a way that I am gripping the vertical part of the handle, which is much more natural, comfortable and surprisingly, less fatiguing than a horizontal handle.Is it easy to adjust the blades for perfect cutting? Mostly. 6/10. It might take some fine tuning and fiddling to get it just right, and I found this slightly confusing at one point. But when you see your lawnmower slicing paper cleanly without the blades touching, it’s pretty impressive and well worth the effort. Which, by the way, you only have to make once a year. I adjusted this down a notch because it can be confusing if you make a mistake. Be careful to follow directions closely.Is it easy to adjust the cut height? Ridiculously. 10/10. Just reach down and adjust a knob on the right side. It’s not even hard to move the knob! No wrenches necessary. It literally takes about 3 seconds. I wish the notches were marked for height.Is it easy to adjust the handle height? Very. 9/10. (Just be careful not to drop the cotter pins when you’re doing it.) You can adjust it super low for the very short, all the way up to comfortable for the very tall. I am 5’8 tall, and the recommended position 3 is where I like it. My 5 year old cousin can use it when it’s set to Position 1. (Yes, it really is that easy to push when the grass isn’t overgrown.)Is it easy to push? When adjusted properly for the height of the grass, yes. 9/10. Even if you are small framed and spend your life sitting at a computer doing nothing but typing, you will be able to use this mower fairly easily. The only exception will be if the mower is being pushed through a very deep carpet of grass, which its weight will make a bit more difficult to do because of a tendency to sink into the grass bed.Does it do a good job in one pass? Yes. 9/10. While you will get more grass that gets cut if you make a second pass, even at the same height, it’s not necessary in most cases unless the grass was very tall to begin with. If the grass is more than 2 or 3 higher than the cutting height setting, but still low enough for the machine to mow, a second pass in the opposite or a perpendicular direction is worthwhile. The first pass does almost all the work. When I mowed my grandfather’s 1 acre yard, I made one pass, period. He was very impressed with how well it cut through even the thick stuff in one pass, without needing a second pass at all. So was I. Update: You need to have the blades adjusted properly for this to be true. Otherwise it bends some, and cuts some.Does it cut tall weeds? Usually. 7/10. If the weeds are not more than about 6 to 8 taller than the cut height, and pointed in the right direction (usually straight up or toward the mower), it will
