I really enjoy using this mower. Both cost and environmental impact are important factors to me when buying tools, so I was thrilled to find this while shopping for a new mower. No gas to pay for, and in a few weeks (depending on how often you use it,) it pays for itself. It is a bit difficult to mow up inclines if you have a rugged or steep yard, but not impossible. At some points, it really depends on your physical strength. Great for small to medium size yards, but if you have a large, unwieldy yard, you may want to look elsewhere. It's also difficult to get around lawn ornaments or buildings that may be in your yard, but weeding (by hand or with a weedwhacker) can easily clean that up. Plus, it gives you a fantastic workout! It's so lightweight that my favorite way to clean it is to gently shake it off, instead of spending ages brushing it out. The handle covers may fray a bit, but can be easily replaced or repaired. Would definitely recommend to people with moderately-sized, relatively flat yards.
