So, first let me explain why I gave it an "Excellent Value" rating and nothing more. It's a 3 in 1 mower with a big, torque-y motor. It actually IS an excellent value. However, the build quality and self propelled power is well below poor. If there is a class lower than poor, that's what the rear wheels should be classified as.
Please see pics and video that I took.
If you are cutting on any type of a hill, while going side to side on said hill, the rear wheels will break, plain and simple. I would NOT recommend this mower for use on anything but a flat yard with no holes, no hills, and no turns. You heard right. Even when making a turn at the end of a pass, and you put the weight on the rear wheels, you can see them struggle. It's amazing how this even passed through quality control. I bought this and there were only a few reviews at the time, figured I'd try it. Bad mistake. Looking now, it seems most of the reviews are the same. Broke the rear wheel.
Mind you, this happened during the middle of it's second use. Each use is only 20 mins worth of cutting. What a disaster. I will be returning and going to either Lowes, Sears, or another large chain lawn center.
In this case, you really do get what you pay for.
