does anyone think your 30 has the power for weekly leaf mulching in the fall? i have the timemaster and not sure if it does

It clumps and clogs incredibly easy, and over and over. It does the same thing for tall grass - the mower just can't handle volume even at very slow speeds.

The gas tank is so small that it needs refilled at every lawn. There's no sputtering to warn you to head back toward the trailer - it just stops.

Now that I'm done griping I'll tell you why I still like the mower.
1. It's cheap. I consider it a disposable mower.
2. It leaves a clean cut.
3. On flat terrain it's very fast and I like the variable speed.
4. It's simple to use. My 12 YO son uses his when he helps me out. (although I'm trying to teach him not to scuff the front wheels on pavement when he turns because they're expensive to replace)
5. Have I mentioned that it's cheap? That's the main selling point.
I agree 100% with you, but if I had a do over I would not buy it in fact I'm already planing on trading mine in.
