Weed Eater One Review
The Weed Eater One is about the cheapest riding mower on the market and appeals to users with small-ish, flat yards who prefer sitting to walking as they mow. This compact, lightweight mower features a 190CC engine, 26-inch cutting deck, a 3-in-1 single blade system that mulches or side discharges, and a relatively wide 31-inch turning radius; many users are satisfied but a few report mediocre performance.
The Weedeater One is a bit like a single-seat golf cart or perhaps a go-cart with a cutting deck. Weedeater One WE261 reviews say this riding mower is a good bet for smaller, flat yards, as well as those where edging matters and fence lines need proper cutting. Satisfied consumers like the price, the cut, the electric start, and the compact size, which makes for easy passage through tight spaces and easy storage. It struggles a bit on hills, according to Weedeater One WE261 reviews on Walmart, and may give an uneven cut or get stuck where the terrain itself is uneven. One user who lives in Georgia writes in a Weedeater One WE261 review on MySears that the wheels lack traction when the clay soil in his area dries out and becomes hard like concrete. A small number of consumers gripe about steering difficulties, problems with the transmission, and replacement parts that are hard to find.
The Weedeater One WE261 boasts a 190cc gasoline-fueled engine (two-quart capacity), 26-inch cutting deck, and 30-inch turning radius. It has a three-speed manual transmission with cruise control that tops out at four mph going forward and one mph in reverse. The single blade cuts at three heights between 1.5 and 4 inches, and you can choose mulch, side discharge, or bag. Front wheels are 10 inches and rear wheels stand 13 inches high.
This cheap riding mower is best suited for fairly level yards of about one-half acre. Even consumers who report problems with durability (there's a two-year warranty) say the product and price point are far better deals than hiring a lawn maintenance service -- and don't even think about the walk-and-push option.
