This mower is a replacement for an 11 year-old Honda mower that the self propelled system stopped working. I was pleased with placing the order. It is easy to put together and even more easy to operate. I like the new features for adjusting the wheels for cutting height. The electric start is a very nice feature. The new bag design is an improvement over my previous Honda mower. My only dissatisfaction was the delivery, When I placed the order it said it would be delivered Wednesday, then I received an e-mail it would be delivered on Thursday and then I received an e-mail it would be delivered on Friday. Well, it did make it Friday, but I was not happy with FEDEX. My wife and I were at home all day. I received an e-mail the package had been delivered. When I went to see the package the top was open and no FEDEX person to report the possibility of missing parts or damage. After this experience I will stop using FEDEX. I know MaxTool does not have control over FEDEX, but I know UPS does a better job of notifying you when they deliver something.
