I have a small yard and limited storage. This little mower does the trick, and I'm so proud to do the work myself. I'm 62, and a short woman. Yay!

Sharper Blade Equals Easier Cutting
The biggest misconception about reel mowers is that the spinning reel cuts the grass.

In reality, reel mowers only have one long razor blade at the bottom of the mower.

The spinning blades basically grab the grass and force it against the razor blade like pencil sharper.

Over time, the blade wears down, making the grass cutting chore as difficult as cutting paper with dull scissors.

To sharpen it, you simply apply an abrasive on the reels with a brush then crank.

The abrasive... more

Reel Deal
Our gas mower broke 3 weeks ago & needs a part ordered, so we needed something in the meantime. I lean toward natural things anyway & thought a reel mower would be nice to try in the interim as they're definitely less expensive than power mowers, "green", would save hassle and/or money of borrowing/renting a mower or hiring a mowing service. Plus, it we would always have a backup mower on hand.

It was a cinch to put together & so easy to operate. Our lawn hadn't... more

Perfect Push Mower
I received the package and set about putting it together. The instructions were easy to follow and took about 5 minutes to assemble. The height adjustment is also easy and intuitive.

It mows high and low grass easily. So easily that even the kids should have no trouble with it. As long as there are no sticks to foul the blade, it keeps going with no issues. If you do get a jam, a quick pull backwards seems to clear it.

It works well on regular lawn grass and crabgrass. The only... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, High Quality, Easy To Store

I Actually Enjoy Mowing
I've used it only once, but so far it's just what I wanted: Sharp-it cut high grass and weeds without a problem-and good for hard-to-reach areas- and the sound reminds me of my childhood! My only concern is the durability of the plastic parts. Time will tell.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, High Quality
Cons: Took Two People To Assemble - Not As Easy As Advertised

My First Reel Mower
I grew up using gas-powered push and riding mowers, but I wanted to switch to an eco-friendly approach to maintaining my lawn. This reel mower was reasonably priced and had a good customer rating, so I decided to give it a try. Out of the box, it assembled easily, and I had to make a few minor adjustments to the blades to get a clean cut across their entire width, which was simple enough. It has been working perfectly since I got it. The grass clippings get spread evenly, and it gives my lawn a... more

Easy To Use
I bought this mower out of curiosity to see if it would be a good idea to use a reel mower on my yard. I'm excited to say it exceeded my expectations. My wife wants to mow the yard now! Grass is greener & softer! We love our new mower....
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Ok Product
OK product - Squeaks and clogs easily, especially if grass is slightly wet. Using for very small area, so will grind it out.

Not Sharp From Factory
I am disappointed with the cut. 1st pass always leaves uncut grass so everything must be double pass - ugh!
