It's hard for me to understand as there has been a lot of positive reviews about this mower, the bottom line is, if it can't cut grass than what's the point. This season has been a challenge up here, growth has been almost spring like all season and things are more wet than dry, often times he just leaves it on the trailer in favour of the 21".
I agree with your friend , it is too cumbersome and heavy to be a trim mower. I don't really have an issue with the discharge opening. The deal breaker for me is whether it mulches up leaves well. As we get later in the season it becomes very difficult to operate the larger mowers on some properties due to wetness. The 30" maybe helpful on these yards
