I just finished mowing my lawn with the MJ402E and I am both puzzled and pleased. The grass was on the longish side (townhouse) which meant I had to empty the rear bag five times. Once the grass is under control I figure I will have to empty it at least twice per lawn cutting. It does hold a lot of clippings, but still, it is a bit annoying to have to stop and empty the bag into a lawn/leaf bag. Does it mulch? Nope. It cuts the grass and you empty the grass clippings.

The part that puzzled me was getting it to start. At the very beginning, it came to life and start cutting the grass. Then I stopped it to empty the bag and for the life of me couldn't get it to start again. I came back inside, re-read the instruction and saw what was happening. You have to tilt the mower back towards you (really tilt) then press the button and pull down the handle. That took some getting used to. Tilt, press, pull. If nothing happens (as with me), tilt it some more, press and pull. Check that the thing is still plugged in, then tilt waaay backwards, press and pull.

Whoever said it was not noisy must be hearing impaired. This thing is as loud as any gas mower. I like that it is electric and doesn't smell up the place and that I don't have to store gas as with a gasoline mower. I like that it has a handle that allows you to easily pick the thing up to bring inside, but I will have to go back to the instructions to figure out how to fold the handle and not end up taking the thing apart.

Overall, I am pleased with this purchase and know that in time I will get the hang of it now that I have gotten my lawn back under control. No regrets on the purchase whatsoever. (P.S. the instructions said there were two clips for the cord, but they were not in my box).

Awesome small mower - cuts cleanly on the first pass and handles easily. The only down side is the bar across the top that you have to keep squeezed (a safety feature) hurts my hands, but wearing light weight cotton gloves solved that problem. Easy to turn, quiet, I highly recommend this mower for small areas, or gardens that have a lot of trees, shrubs, etc to go around like mine does. Easy to empty the grass catcher, and I like the little button that flips up to warn you if it's full (I didn't get it that full, so I haven't seen it flip up yet) I suggest you start at the place closest to the outlet to avoid dragging the cord under your mower when backtracking, and using the shortest cord possible (those cords can get heavy). I put a heavy duty cord with a plug/stake at the end in the back yard, and ran a shorter cord to the mower off it which worked great, giving me plenty of cord but not a lot to haul around. I'm a retired female, with a bad wrist, so when I say this is easy to use I mean it!

Love the mower. I am 77 years old and I love to mow. The cord is a pain but the mower is light, no trouble to start and mows beautifully. You don't have to worry about gas or oil. Of course my mowing area is small . Don't have to wait on anybody to mow. I can do it myself.

I'm not going to try to write a technical review, others have done that much better than I could. This machine seems pretty well put together, and it does what it's supposed to do pretty well for the price.

What I will say is that your yard is probably bigger than you think it is. This mower is obviously designed for small, even yards. I under-estimated the size of mine, and as a consequence this mower is probably smaller than I actually need. Not the manufacturer's fault of course, and the Snow Joe does the job well enough. But mowing the lawn is taking me longer than it should and I have to empty the cuttings box too frequently. Also, there's not a huge amount of clearance underneath the cutting blades; I could do with at least an inch or two more, due to my lawn being fairly uneven and bumpy.

Only just used it. I live in a townhouse. My front lawn is probably about 300 (+) square feet. Did my lawn and the neighbors on each side. The lawns look like I used an expensive gas powered lawn mower. I did not use the bag attachment which resulted in a clump of dry grass where the bag is normally attached. (I do not know if it is a bad idea not to use the bag attachment.) I like that the mower can be set to a good height for cutting grass. The motor was slightly warm after mowing the 3 lawns. I felt around the motor area while wiping the under carriage of the mower when I finished. My only complaint is that the bolts that hold the upper handle are not quite long enough to leave the handle attached when lowering the handle for storage. I used a 50', 12/3 outdoor extension cord. I just prefer heavier duty extension cords as they may help extend the life of an electric motor.

This mower is virtually maintance free! I got this mower last may and used it all season and have started to use it this year so far no problems at all!

I have 2 extension cords, 1 - 25ft & 1- 100ft. This gets me both front and back yards & the sides of the house without having to unplug! No messing with charging it just plug it in and go.

It has 5 blade settings, it can mulch and comes with a bag! My only regret on this purchase was that i didn't get one with a little bigger blade size.

It worked great, but I didn't notice until after I mowed and cleaned it up, that it didn't sit flat, it rocked, due to one of the front wheels not touching the ground. And one of the back wheels is leaning WAY too close to the body of the mower. I had my son look at it (he's a welder and mechanical designer) and he said it was welded that way; I thought maybe he could bend it out, but no. I put it together on my carpet and checked it out, then carried it out to the lawn; I was so excited about getting to mow, that I didn't think to put it on my patio to check out to see if it sat flat. It did a GREAT job of mowing and was very easy to handle. I've been mowing the grass since I was 10yrs old, with mowers that my Dad put together with scrape parts, all the way up to large riding lawn mowers at work. I like the grass kept short, I don't like "the abandon house look", that the men in my life have seemed okay with, so I mow. At 58, this is much easier to deal with, no oil, no gas and no smelly fumes and this is easy to move around.

The first one I ordered tarting smoking after 2 minutes in short grass. Amazon exchanged it for me and I am so pleased with my new mower. It is quiet and easy to use. Does a great job on my smaller lawn.

My first lawnmower, my first house, the he can with a talk weedy lawn. Sun jow mower could not be stopped, looked ugly as sin though. As long as you get a 12/3 extension cable, your good. For reference my lot is 7k, and 100ft extension allowed me to mow everything. I don't bag btw, I mulch, so much easier than bagging.

Cool little machine.
