Had 1 for 5 years until the battery went. You can't buy a replacement battery, kind of a rip-off in that regard. But, I liked it enough to buy another one.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I live in Overland Park,KS where people insist on having lawns. So I thought I'll join in but will do this as environmentally friendly as possible... no pesticides, no gasoline fumes. So I bought this piece of junk and had to take the first one back after a month because it would not charge. With the second one, the whole thing went dead after 11 months. Oh trust me, we charged the battery per instructions to a T. We stressed out it; we wanted to do it right. But alas, now we have a heavy piece of metal and have to figure out how to recycle it. DO NOT BUY!!!

ut13126 cordless lawnmower
3/21/2013
Pros
Adjustable Cut-Lengths
Cons
Lower Handle Fragile
Best Uses
Medium size lawn
Mulching
Comment:
Cuts and mulches very well. but if you have a difficult lawn requiring use of the handle to lift or turn, the lower handle is fragile and tends to bend and break. I would recommend to a friend with reservations and caveats.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
