Alas I think it may have met its match with the new lawn(s). Total area of grass is probably something like three quarters of an acre - mostly flat although bumpy in places, and some dodging among the trees. The prospect of pushing the beastie back and forth is not too bad, but I expect the 50 odd trips to empty the blighter might get tedious very quickly.
Hence what would you recommend? Are we into "sit on" mower territory here or would that be overkill? (not that I have any objection to overkill if it does the job well and quickly ;-))
 Once I worked out how to rig its auto adjusting throttle to run the machine a little faster so as to create enough airflow through it to not clog with cuttings every 10 yards!
 Although note I have note tried it yet!
