Comment:
I was able to fit it in the back-seat of my Camry and unload it with ease. That was about the only positive experience of my purchase.<br /><br />I was a little skeptical after reading multiple Online reviews of poor build quality and material, but did not expect it to be that bad for the price tag. Unfortunately, the reviews proved right. The blade control lever attaches to the handle through plastic attachment. After the initial set-up both the plastic attachment and the control level broke. I did not even get around to putting in the oil, gas or starting it once. Had to put it back in the box and take it back to store.<br /><br />Went and bought Honda HRX217VLA model.
How long have you owned it:
