Tyler Tool currently has the MO40L01 (40V 21" Pusher tool only) for $219.99 shipped. I got mine direct from GW on a 4th of July sale for $200 delivered.i have a flat .39 acre lot, minus small home and driveway/sidewalk area I guess. But even 5% or so less walking, perhaps with a smoother/better looking cut is very tempting.
and it seems the GW mowers in my sights will give me another 3/8" or so of height so, that may be OK.
This is a problem with all mowers that have an internal single lever wheel height adjustment. There needs to be room at the front of the deck for the axle and mechanism. Mowers with external single wheel height adjustments are much better.... and I wish it would 'nose-up' closer to objects in the front, but everything else seems OK.
