Lawn Mower Reviews- Not Helpful
I have spent a few maddening hours trying to find a good mower, with the assistance of Choice magazine and the many owner reviews available online. The owner reviews are useless because they are so erratic and contradictory. I have never seen so many 5 star and 1 star ratings for the same thing.
I will give you one example: the Honda HRR216. I bet you've heard a lot of good things about Honda mowers. I sure have. Choice rates the two HRR216's they tested highly- Honda HRR216K9VYUA and HRR216K9VKUA. Over at Product Reviews, however, it gets a 2.5 star rating from 46 reviews, and very helpful information like:
-piece of crap
-I enjoy doing my lawn now
-Best decision ever
-Honda was a poor choice
-Don't buy not worth the over priced price tag
-Very poorly made mower
Yes, very helpful, if you suffer from multiple personality disorder. And that's the pattern for every highly regarded mower, by some, I've looked at.
The only explanation I can come up with is that a lot of people must not know how to use and maintain a lawn mower and they are blaming the mower for it.
