FAQs:

This is more than twice the cost of Greenworksl? No catcher basket. I don't mind paying premium for well-made product, but is this worth it?
I would pay it for this. See my review. I'm like you. I will pay more for better. I bought mine 3 years ago & haven't even needed to sharpen it. Very tough little mower.

Any of you live in the south and use this mower with St. Augustine grass?
I use it on my St. Augustine lawn here in Florida, and I’ve been extremely happy with it! It does leave the taller weeds, I will say, but I don’t mind going through and pulling those. It’s the only reel mower I could find that has options for cutting at the healthier height of 3.5-4” and my lawn has been thanking me.

What difference(s) between this newer model and the older model, also offered here on Amazon for $179?
I have had the $179 model for less than a year. The front wheels are made of hard plastic and will not last the year. I do have to go over 300 feet of concrete driveway to get to a couple of other patches of grass, but I would still expect more from the wheels. The front wheels of the newer model look more substantial, but obviously I can't swear to their durability. Besides the reversible chute mentioned by photofan, the description says the older model is 30% easier to push (which is pretty darn easy on my bermuda grass) and the newer one says 60% easier. The older model also says "50 percent more cutting power" while the newer one says 100% ("twice") the cutting power. Edit: Having now seen the newer model, the new front wheels are essentially smaller versions of the back wheels. So I assume they would last longer than the front wheels of the older model.

Where is made ? there is one version made in USA. can’t remember the brand.
Made in Finland, not made in the USA.
