Performance scores are based on cutting:
Short (30mm) grass to 15mm
Medium-length (approx. 75-100mm) grass to 30mm
Long (approx. 300-400mm) grass on the highest cut setting
We run the short and medium-length grass tests with the mower in both catcher and mulching modes where applicable. Neither the catcher nor the mulcher is used for the long grass test.
Ease of use is assessed on:
Handle comfort (20%)
Cutting height adjustment (10%)
Catcher convenience (10%)
Ease of starting** (10%)
Noise is measured at 7.5 metres away/at user’s ear.
Weight is measured without the catcher or mulcher plug, or battery for cordless models.

If you follow the book a very easy starter. Excellent cut with the catcher. Mulching is okay but probably I need more experience to get the cutting height right.
The price seems a bit high. I bought mine after the last Consumer review when it was only $449 so I am not sure I would be comfortable buying again at $779, up $300.
Yes, I recommend this product.
