i am thinking about buying a Stihl RM448vc petrol mower to replace my current Honda Izy for small/medium lawns.
Positives for it are;
Light weight (lots to lifting into rear gardens up steps etc)
Poly deck (for weight and corrosion)
Solid grass box (hopefully better wet collection than the rubbish Izy bag).
However I am struggling to find any reviews for it, or the similar previous Viking model MB448vc, and am concerned about a few things, including how well the single sided handle lasts over time, and the strength of the deck.
Any of you guys use one of these, and if so what did you like/dislike and think about it, and how well does it do for wet collection.
Etesia would be great, but cannot really justify cost and no dealer within 150miles
