Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how much clippings the bag held either before it filled or the chute clogged.

Comment:
Owned the smaller model for 10 years now; bought two batteries, the last one six years ago. Use it to mow a lawn bigger than recommended and does decent job but takes two batteries to do so. Easy to use, lift and carry (w/o battery). No gas, no fumes, no oil, etc., etc. Downside: not enough heft in power to lift grass for even and effective cutting. Takes twice as long to mow yard than w/gas mower. Also, blades need sharpening relatively often. Overall, good investment of about $300 for last ten years.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I don't have this specific model but have had the Neuton C5.2 for 8 years. This is a 14 model but the C6 is a 19 model. I chose the 14 model because my lot size was small and I needed something lightweight that I could handle. It came with one battery and I purchased a spare. It has only needed 2 small repair adjustments I was able to do myself. This environmentally friendly model is everything I was hoping for and it has worked out perfectly with very little effort required to get my lawn in shape. I highly recommend this brand. It would have been perfect if the store where I purchased it in my city had continued to sell and service it but now the closest repair depot is over an hour away from I live.

This review is for the Neuton CE6.. had it for a little over 4 years (my warranty). Initially, I loved it.. then a battery died, a handle broke (replaced under warranty) then the handle broke again (after warranty period)... needed another battery... it was ok... but there are better mowers.
