Q: How would the Hover Mower do in cutting lake banks that are only cut once every two months. Therefore the grass gets high.
by Bob Spano from Florida on December 05, 2015

A: Thank you for contacting us this will work fine on Grass that is 6" high but anything higher will bog down the machine.

Banks And Ditches
I purchased this mower because of several small rises, banks and ditches around my property. The weed whacker was taking far too long and was not leaving a good clean finish with the grass at an even height. This mower does the job perfectly. Amazingly it starts up on the first pull without using a choke or primer bulb.

In addition to the banks and ditches I am also using it to replace the weed whacker around bushes and under fences. The mower does not weigh very much either so it is easy to... more

Handle Weak Point On Mower
I tightened handle knobs down well. However, one came loose while cutting and i lost bolt and washers. Impossible to find replacement. Please send bolt to go through handle.

Great Mower But Beware Of Limitations
I have used the mower a couple of times now and am generally pleased. We have a terraced boulder wall which was hard to maintain with a push mower.

I like the way the Hover mower can cut in and around the boulders (much better than any push mower) around tight turns better than a zero turn mower.

I also like that there are no issues with wheel marks leaving strips of uncut grass.

On the top of the boulder wall the slope goes from fairly gentle about 3 or 4 feet out from the wall to... more
