Great Mower

Posted

Pros: Easy start, cuts great

Cons: Long lead time, long charging time

I was very leery of replacing my gas powered mower, however my wife convinced me that I should give it a try, so I reluctantly ordered the Neuton CE 6.2.  I received the mower and it had a key malfunction (apparently, a common problem).  I reported the problem via the toll free number they shipped the replacement parts out immediately.  I put in the new parts and just finished mowing my lawn.  What a fantastic product.  It was well worth the money and the wait time.  This thing works great and we are doing something good for the environment.

Great experience with previous model...

Posted

Pros: Quiet with no trips to the gas station and no cord!

I have the previous model and have owned it for a number of years. I got the mower as part of a gas-mower trade-in program run by our local electric company. I think it cost me $100 - $150 dollars with the trade-in. It's probably been at least 4-5 years so I don't remember. I've never had a problem with the model that I have. It does have the narrower cutting path but it just means a little more walking. Our old gas mower was hard to start - this mower is so much easier to start. I would never go back to a gas mower. If I ever have to replace my mower, I'll look for the latest Neuton. I hope the one I have lasts for many more years!

pure junk

Pros: when new it is something different

Cons: no power does not cut well

I traded my gas mover plus 150 and regreted it ever since.   You are a fool if you buy this.  Its loud for an electric motor and it just does not work.  Its like trying to mow your lawn with a cheap weed eater.

Going Green after divorce from Neuton 6.2

Posted

Pros: Great concept.

Cons: DOA out of the box in 2008. It's replacement had a bad wheel and axle. Control module replaced because of arcing on the safety key holder. New front w

The marriage with my CE 6.2 started in June of 2008. It's been a rough relationship. But wait, there's more: It's not made for St Augustine grass in the deep south. Even on the highest setting it struggles through the turf. I had to take the chute off and bungee cord up the chute door to get it to move. It doesn't like the humidity; parts have started rusting. I keep the battery inside the air-conditioned house so after 2 years it still works, but it acts like it's middle aged with less power. AND ... it had to be repaired 5 times, and is currently in a repair shop ... where it has been for 3 weeks. What problems have I had: it was DOA out of the box in 2008. It's replacement had a bad...

Buy A different mower

Posted

Pros: no gas

Cons: I dont know where to start

 my mower stopped working after one season. There is not service for it anywhere close…thats something I didnt think about before. I have the newer larger model. The weed eater attachment is a joke, It is not as light and quiet as they make you think. The handle/switch assembly is incredibly uncomfortable. The grass catcher is too small and I had to “engineer” it to make it work. It’s now just a $500 piece of plastic sitting in my garage. Their customer service is a joke. If you choose to buy one, make sure you rear the fine print. I would recommend some other mower.UPDATE: today while cutting  i notice something come out from under the mower..... IT WAS THE BLADE! yes, the blade came off...

Makes mowing fun

Posted

Pros: Quiet, no fumes, minimal maintenance

Cons: price

We actually have the previous model which is smaller and that is the only problem that we have with ours. Mowing takes a bit longer with ours since it's not as wide, but I will never go back to any other mowing! We can mow earlier in the morning and later at night because it is so quiet. We have a back up battery, but we can mow 2-3 times on one fully charged battery. Our yard is 3/4ths of an acre. Maintenance includes sharpening the blade and rinsing off the mower before storing in the winter. It is light and easy for me to control, and our neighbors are always asking questions and fawning over it. We have the extra edging accessories, but haven't taken the time to try them out...

Enjoy mowing you will love this mower

Posted

Pros: Quiet no gas or oil strong motor

Cons: Not enough suction to lift up grass when wet and pushed down by wheels.

I enjoy mowing the lawn and do not rush the job. If you can say this you will love the neuton ce 6.2. On the other hand if you look at it as a chore that you want done as fast as possible not caring about noise or polution by a honda. I still have my honda and living in washington state will probably always keep it around for the wet days. But I love the neuton it does a great job I can do my yard and the neighbors on one charge about 1/3 acre.

GREAT Mower

Posted

Pros: Better than expected

Cons: Like to be able to charge the battery faster.

I've used this mower to mow my .75 acre, twice, it was great, but it took two days, because I had to charge the battery overnight, I have since ordered a spare battery. Great Product. LB

Not what I was hoping for!

Posted

Pros: Enviro friendly, Quiet, No maintanence

Cons: Narrow, lacks power, heavy

I've used it once and now I feel ripped off.  While quiet and enviro friendly it left me wanting!  The unit is far to narrow to be of much use at all.  The wheel base is outside the cutting chamber which means you have to over cut your wheel marks.  Unfortunately the mover is not powerful enough to pull the wheel trodden grass up to cut it well at all.  The handle grip has no locking device so if you are not gripping down hard on the activation bar the mower will shut off quickly....you have to backup and run it again.  While the sales pitch is that it is a light weight unit to lift, it sure doesn't feel like a light weight unit to push.

Fantastic Mower

Posted

Pros: Easy, quiet, non-polluting, powerful, plenty of battery capacity, easy to clean,

Cons: none

I read the book "Lives Per Gallon" and learned about the nasty emissions from small gas engines. Then I went searching for a good electric mower.  I bought the Neuton 6.2 in 2008 and used it all spring, summer and fall.  I absolutely love this mower!  I will never again walk behind a gas engine mower.  It has plenty of power and battery capacity.  It is very easy to remove the blade for sharpening, and the battery for charging.  Well engineered, well built.  I couldn't be happier.

Love the Neuton...

Posted

Pros: Lightweight, well designed blade, pull out battery, no pollution

Cons: needs 1 more notch for cutting grass a bit highter

I own a sustainable lawn maintenance company in the Bay Area and use the Neuton 6.2 every day. I really love it. It is a good looking powerful machine. I charge it with the solar panels attached to my truck so there are no emmisions at all! It will get bogged down if I am mowing wet or very tall grass but other than that it has a nice cut. I sharpen the blade weekly and the Neuton comes with tools right under the hood to easily remove the blade. The other great feature is how quiet it is. Neighbors are constantly thanking me. www.cleanairlawncare.com

Best Green Mower EVER

Posted

Pros: lightweight, quiet, no exhaust fumes, powerful

Cons: inconvenience of running out of juice before the job is done.

I love, love, love this mower!!  I have a small yard, so this is the ideal machine.  It's lightweight and easy to manuver, super quiet and just as powerful (when fully charged) as any other mower I've used.

I love this mower....

Posted

Pros: NO GAS... LESS NOISE

Cons: If you have a big yard, buy an extra battery.. full charge gives you about an hour.

I bought the Neuton mower when I moved into my new home last year... I got the upgrade package with the bag, trimmer, extra battery, etc... well worth the money.
