Perfect Mower For Slopes / Hills!
Love it, I have very steep slope that runs into a creek. I would normally use a regular lawn mower with a pulley and rope. That was time consuming and exhausting! This trimmer moves from side to side with little effort. I won't give it up.

Recommend that the grass needs to be kept short for best performance. If grass gets high air escapes easily and may be a little frustrating to use. With that said, I've been very happy so far. I also made my own cart to move around the yard for about... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store

Like Mowing On Air...literally!
Due to the crazy weather, I've only been able to use the mower once since it arrived. But that experience has me excited for the Spring. I have an extremely steep front yard, which has been difficult to mow with a conventional rotary mower. After unpacking the hover mower, it started right up and I was amazed with its ease of use. I was able to cut the front yard in about 1/2 the time with about 1/4 of the effort. The grass was high at the bottom, but that seemed to be no problem for the mower.... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Expensive

My First Hover Experience!
I was not familiar with a hover mower until a week before I ordered the mower. A mower floating on air was quite an experience for me. A great product!
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, High Quality, Easy To Store

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

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. No instructions that if cable line is not pulled just the right way you will never get mower started because the shaft will not be released to start.

The mower does not make clean cuts. You have to go over the same area several time in many case to get grass cut. This makes the process more exhausting than it's worth.... more
