Cub Cadet 11A-18MC
(Casa Grande, AZ)
Not a lot of bells and whistles go along with this lawnmower, but it does it's job. In a nutshell, it's a basic gas powered walk behind mower.
Some upsides to this particular model would be first, the price. For around $200 it's not a bad buy by any means. And while I don't know of one person who enjoys spending extra money on gas these days, it's surprisingly fuel efficient (for a mower).
The blades are adjustable (a plus for my husband, who likes the grass cut a certain way) and are easy to replace. And the grass clippings are captured in the bag nicely (I HATE clippings strewn about the lawn!) Plus, though I can't really tell the difference, my husband swears that it is quieter than our last lawn mower.
Personally I think that observation is debatable, but that could just be me. The biggest complaint that we (or rather, he) has about the mower is the ease of use.
The handling can be a bit tricky and the act of mowing can be a very tiring task with this model. It's a classic case of "you get what you pay for" - it's not a bad mower. It does it's job and does it well. But you pay for it with handling and usability. Still, we would probably buy one again given the opportunity, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a friend.
Overall, this is well worth the investment if you have a small to medium sized lawn that doesn't require weekly trimmings.
