I have just bought a McGregor 1200Welectric Rotary mower. It was not expensive (I am on a tight budget!) but the reviews were good. However I am having problems assembling it. I am usually quite good at following manuals but I have got total brain fog with this! I have got the handle sorted out but it is the fabric grass box I am struggling with! I have been messing about with it for hours and the Help Desk is shut!
Can anyone give me a few pointers as to what goes where and how? I enclose a couple of pics and the page of the manual. Thanks!

Thanks again Bob! Well ,I have put it together as best as I can (I was trying to lay the metal things in the wrong side of the box!)
The only pieces I cant find a place for are the small black plastic clips in the top photo. I cant seem to fit them to anything!

The black clips look like they clip on the bar to hold the cable in place, look at the finished mower here.
(yours may be a different model)

I phoned their help desk this morning and they confirmed that the instructions are vague to say the least! They said that the lawnmower was made in China and the English translation also left a lot to be desired. The illustration of the grass box gives the impression that it is rigid and stands up but it only does that when full of grass! My advice would be that if you can afford a better lawnmower, buy one ! I am off out now to give it a try! Thanks to all who replied.
