This mower is not built for southern lawns, the wheels are too small even on the highest setting it is far to low for a turf grass where the wheels sink into the turf. The mower blade is made out of garbage metal and will not hold an edge. I cannot get more than 5 mowings without having to resharpen the blade which is ridiculous. The battery is good, the mower cuts well when the blade is brand newly sharpened and the grass is sparse, but at the height of the growing season we pride ourselves on a lush lawn and this mower is unable to handle it. In order to finish a 7,000 square foot yard I have to recharge the battery 3 times, thank goodness the battery recharges fast otherwise I am not sure how I would be reacting. You have a decent product, but one mower does not work on such different lawn types and maybe you should have held off until you were ready for a southern lawn.
