Summary: I have had this mower now for over a year - I have owned both petrol and electric mowers before, and this is the best mower I have ever had. It does feel a trifle 'flimsy' at first but I now think it is built to handle the sort of knocks a mower gets.
Summary: had a motor mower before, very hard to start and heavy to use. this is oh soo simple and is fantastic. battery life is ok. we have one battery on charge,so if it stops mid lawn,just put another battery in. bestest bestest lawnmower ever.
Pros: Easy to use, Easy to maintain, Well made, Battery life
worth spending more to get cordless yet still good at cutting grass

Summary: After reading all the comments i decided to go ahead and splurge and buy a more expensive, bigger lawnmower. previously had manual mower that was supposed make the lawn look great - but spent most of my time trying to adjust the thing.
Brilliant mower, heavy duty but light and easy to use...

Summary: Wanted a mower that I (female) could easily use, lift if necessary and that does the job with no fuss. This is it! Can't praise it enough. Once it was put together - I did it, no problem - I had it mowing the lawn with ease.
Summary: The main reason for purchase was to get a lighter mower but still produce good results. The Rotak does all of this. Very light due to the LI batteries. No cable to worry about. Produces good results with a stripe. Easy to manouver. Easy to store away.
