However, it is worth paying attention to the body of these machines. The thing is that they have a rather low parameter of resistance to mowed grass juice. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you wipe the mower after each use. Since all products of this company have gas engines, they are equipped with an easy-start system. In other words, there is no need to manually pump fuel into the carburetor when starting the unit. In addition to this, almost all models initially have a built-in mulching function, which is carried out using the built-in mulching wedge.
