    Question:
    I'm very interested in the SmartCut mower. I have a few questions, though.

    1. There are areas on my lawn where I need to cut grass while in reverse. The ROS system on the SmartCut allows this, though having to switch the ROS system on and off seems like a bother. Can I operate the SmartCut with the ROS system always on? That is, can I leave the ROS active for the entire time I'm mowing my lawn.

    2. Is the seat padded or just ventilated hard plastic?

    3. Does the SmartCut come with a dedicated mulching blade?

    4. In your 360 view of the SmartCut on the website, if you hold the mower at a certain point, it claims the engine is 11.5 hp. Then, at another point, it says it's 10.5 hp. Which is it? Not that one horse makes a difference.

    Thanks.

      Thanks, Scott, for the information.

      I downloaded the SmartCut manual, but it was not clear about whether one could operate the mower with the ROS engaged full-time. Thanks for clearing that up.

      Unfortunately, the WeedEater dealer in my area isn't actually selling these mowers this season. They had the WeOne at the end of last season, but they aren't even selling that now. And, no one within 50 miles has a SmartCut on-display to examine. My only option to purchase is to buy one online, unseen, from the HomeDepot website.
