      • Not the Messiah of Mowers!

      A mower this expensive deserves some honest criticism. First, let me state that I'm happy with my purchase and I do recommend this mower. It IS an excellent mower and hundreds of other reviewers have rated it highly. For context, I've had this mower for one year now and I'm comparing this experience with my previous mower of 20 years: a Toro Recycler II. Some (minor) drawbacks to the Honda CGV190: 1. Significant grass clippings get trapped in the Versamow compartment. This isn't a huge problem except that you have to manually scoop them out after each mow or the grass will sit in there and rot and stink up your garage. Annoying detail for such an expensive mower. 2. So many reviewers have commented that the mulched grass clippings virtually disappear into your lawn. I disagree. I don't think this mower is all that much better than other mulching mowers at making the grass clippings disappear. It's not bad, but don't expect invisible clippings. I have a healthy, thick lawn and I can definitely see some clumping from time to time with this mower. It's about the same as my old Toro Recycler. 3. The Nexite deck is great, but you'll still have some grass stick to the inside of the deck, especially if it's damp. Believe me, no deck material will prevent that. 4. This machine is heavy! I can't believe some reviewers marveled at how light it is! What were they pushing before this: a tank?! If you have quite a few turns, stops, backing up, etc. to do in your lawn, you're going to get a workout. The heaviness does cause the machine to slide a bit down a slope if you are cutting laterally across the slope -- making it hard to keep straight lines. 5. The dual bar system for propulsion and blade control takes some getting used to. It's definitely a two-handed operation. It's fine once you get used to it, but you should ask yourself: how important to me is it really to have the blade shut-off option? How often am I really going to be stopping to pick up objects, etc and is it really that much of an inconvenience to buy a less expensive mower where I have to re-start the engine every time? I don't think the Roto-stop feature is such a make-break aspect. I consider these all minor annoyances, but for a mower this expensive, you should know what some of the slight drawbacks are. Final verdict: I don't think you can go wrong with this mower, but if price is an issue for you, I think you'll be fine with less expensive mulching mowers.

      Pros Cuts Well, All In One, Easy to Use, Durable, Powerful, Great Engine, Self-Propelled, Long-Lasting, starts on first pull every time Cons Too Heavy, grass clippings get stuck in compartment
