Gas powered lawn mower is still a favorite option despite the coming of new electric and cordless lawn mowers, which are often dubbed as better options because of their non-emission machines. However, McLane 801 5.50GT is a good gas powered lawn mower with all benefits of a modern mower, but without downsides of old models of gas powered lawn mower.
Heavy-Duty Machine, designed for large-sized yard
The powerful power and blades are great to trim large sized yard, but the practical assembly and machine make the lawn mower easy to assemble and operate despite its seemingly massive form (with the gas tank). What makes this lawn mower great to use among other gas-powered machine? Can this mower deliver good performance with its less bulky and seemingly less powerful machine?
At first look, McLane 801 5.50GT seems like a quite massive gas lawn mower, but it is not so big in dimension because the frames are sleek (the machine and gas tank make the mower seems bigger). This mower has 4 wheels and rubber tires over them, so pushing the machine over uneven surface should be really easy. The machine and gas tank stand directly between the frames between bulky parts and the handles shaped like a bike handle, making pushing and maneuvering the machine easier.
Tough Design, Effortless Performance
Overall, the simple form makes the mower easy to assemble, and the complete assemble is only necessary for the upper part, which only requires about 6 bolts. The machine is quick to use after assembly and you can immediately make it running over your yard after the first assembly. 9-inch blade further adds the tough look and performance of this gas powered lawn mower machine.
The machine and 9 inches blade ensure strong performance, and very much recommended if you want to mow a rather large yard with uneven ground, since the machine seems like just ‘attacking’ all the grasses and even small blocks such as soil mulch or stick.
As a new and powerful gas powered lawn mower machine, McLane 801 5.50GT has several features that make the machine work wonderfully with less efforts compared to its predecessors. The lawn mower is powered with powerful Briggs and Stratton machine, which is famous among new gas powered lawn mower products.
