Advantages: Ease of use, light, robust and reliable
Disadvantages: Loud and noisy.
I bought this Qualcast on a whim. When I was out looking for a new lawnmower this one caught my eye and I don't know why. It isn't the most appealing looking lawnmower in the world and the price is quite steep but it just looked reliable and like it could take a good throttling before it would pack up.
Unsurprisingly, like I first thought it has been reliable. Always starting up and no mechanical or electrical problems as of yet. I must say it is quite an easy lawnmower to use.
Weighting in at 11kg, it is surprisingly light and nimble to move around the garden requiring little to no effort at all. The handles fold down after use which makes it really easy to store if you haven't got much space around to store it.
The grass box fills an impressive 31 litres which I found was more than enough to mow the whole garden and still have room left to add more grass clippings.
I am impressed with the 400 watt motor and cutting cylinder. It cuts down long grass into a really close cut and you couldn't get much more off even if you used scissors.
The only downside I found is that it much louder and noisy compared with lawnmowers that I have previously used in the past. It nearly enough sounds like one of those 50cc mopeds or a hairdryer on medium to high settings.
Summary: Would recommend this to anyone. Great lawnmower.
