This particular lawn mower is also quick on the drive which makes mowing the grass an easy and fast task.

While this particular lawn mower has received lots of positive reviews, there are still some things that we feel that need improvements. The 21” cut of the steel deck is a bit too large and the fact that it does not have a bag to collect the cut grass is a bit disappointing. The chute, on the other hand, is a bit small. We would highly advise that they create a bigger chute so that whenever this is used to mow thick and wet grass, it will not clog the chute.


The Yard Machines 159cc 21-Inch Self-Propelled Mower is a great product that will more than get the job done. It is easier and lighter to operate without sacrificing the quality cut that your yard needs.

This is actually more than adequate as it gives off enough power to mow the lawn, and at the same time, the large gas tank makes it much easier as you do not have to refill the tank as frequently as you would with other models. The dual lever height adjustment is also a big bonus.
