They are becoming more popular every year. More mainstream then before. They are not particularly better then other mowers on the market but they do seem to have more popular features then other brands.
Well it is pretty good but I'm not sure that is the best on the market. There are some other brands out there that are equally good and they include black and decker. I haven't even heard of the brand you are mentioning before. Does it even sell at big department stores?
