The convenience of not having to deal with the hassle of gas or oil is a huge plus, as well as the fact that there are no resulting fumes after mowing or mess when refilling. It is a lot less noisy than gas mowers, meaning fewer disturbances to the neighbours.

On the negative side, although the grass catcher is easily removable, some users have found that it is not large enough and therefore opted for mulching instead. Some experienced the mower to seize up if the grass is overgrown and claim that the blades stop if there is too much grass stuck in them. A suggested improvement for the model is additional height adjustments for a more effective cut.
