I was not able to get to my yard for 3 weeks so the grass was once more 4-5″ high and a bit damp from all the rain we had. My Neuton Power 6.3 mowed this down with no issues. The old Black & Decker CMM1000 in its heyday still would have taken 3 days to complete. While I took 2 days to finish everything with the Neuton Power it was not the lack of charge that slowed me down. But my own abilities to do everything in one day. Next time I fully expect to use just one battery charge for the entire yard. 1 charge got 3/4s of the field and the second battery wiped out the rest of the upper deck brush and the other half of the yard. This included using the weed whacker attachment. I know it is hard to picture my yard but let me tell you this is a vast improvement and the yard looks much better now.
I and my wife are truly impressed. The Neuton Power works great.
Now that I have used it a few times even the weed whacker attachment is incredibly useful. I was even able to edge the walkways properly for the first time in years. Things will just get easier the more I use the device. Now if there was less rain I could actually mulch. Perhaps if they made an attachment so that you could take the weed whacker into tight locations (perhaps a wand) it would be a single most useful yard tool I have.
