Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO features four 5.5 inches (14 cm) wheels with a very simple height adjustment system with three possible cutting heights between 1.18 and 2.52 inches (3 - 6.4 cm), which is enough for most users.
Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO features a large grass bag with a capacity of 10.6 gallons (~40 liters). Also, Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO features a side discharge chute.
Note: Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO features a plastic cutting deck and in order to make the deck as rigid and durable as possible, it has only a rear opening for grass clippings, which is used for collecting the grass clippings in the grass bag or for side discharge via a side discharge chute. This makes also Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO a compact, lightweight, and affordable unit that comes with a 2-year warranty, which is excellent in this price class.
Thanks to its weight, Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO also features a carrying handle allowing the user to easily carry it when required. In combination with a collapsible handle, Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO doesn't require much space for storage, when not in use.
Note: Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO is a very simple to use and maintain corded, walk-behind lawn mower. Nonetheless, when it arrives, be sure to thoroughly read the Owner's Guide/manual in order to get accustomed to your new lawn mower.
Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO lawn mower comes with a 1-ft (~0.3 m) pigtail power cord, requiring the user to have one of the required length and thickness.
Since Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO is rated at 13 Amps, the extension cord should be rated at least for 15 Amps. Also, the extension cord should not be longer than 100 feet (~30.5 m).
Thicker extension cords can be used, of course, in order to decrease the energy losses in the cord, but thicker cables are more difficult to work with.
Also, since the extension cord will be used for mowing the lawn, it should have bright yellow, orange, red or similar colors - in any case, it should not be dark green in color, because such an extension cord may be difficult to spot in the grass.
And no, running the lawn mower with a fast-spinning blade over the power cord is not the smartest thing to do ...
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a simple, affordable, but also reliable and reasonable sturdy and durable corded, walk-behind lawn mower, suitable for smaller and medium lawns, consider Sun Joe MJ401E-PRO lawn mower.
It is rated at 13 Amps and powers 14 inches blade, provides clean and even cuts, is simple to use and maintain, etc. Also, its height adjustment system requires users to flip up the lawn mower and to adjust the height of each wheel, but that is the price of simplicity, which is often the key to durability.
