Solid, Dependable, Functional, Simple
I have used this lawn mower on modest size front and back lawns for about ten years. Light enough to pick up over roots and on inclines but solid enough to withstand a bit of abuse and neglect.

Self sharpens reasonably well. Finally, the handle broke after torquing it around for years, but I am pleased to see I can order a replacement for less than 10 bucks plus shipping.

Easy To Use, Easy To Build
At last something that doesn't take five hours to put together. Easy to build out of box. I am under five feet tall and had a blast mowing the lawn. This is not super heavy nor does it take major muscle to get moving.

Does not like tall weeds that are 8 inches and above but mows everything else. Twigs can stop it but you just turn it over and kick them out and then you will up and mowing.

My Great States 18" Deluxe 5-blade Push Reel Lawn Mower
My Honda gasoline operated mower frame broke and since I always had a hard time starting the mower because I couldn't pull the cord, I decided to look into a reel lawn mower. The self-propelled feature on the mower had also quit working. I was manually pushing a mower that my husband stated weighed around 40 lbs.

When I decided that I was going to buy a reel lawn mower, my father-in-law and husband stated that I wouldn't be able to push it. I told them that it was made of metal not cast... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

Worth The Money. A Good Machine
I have neighbors that always want to borrow my lawnmower. They don't want to borrow this one. Seems like it would be a lot of work. I love it. Cuts nicely. I can take my time. Cut until I get tired. Come back 15 minutes later. Doesn't take that long. I like it on longer grass. You may have to go back over a few places. But it does a nice job. It was a great bargain. I keep spraying it with WD40. Just to keep it loose. You have to build up a little speed for long grass. Or cut... more

Great States Great Mower
I am golf crazy living in Florida and have always been impressed with the look of the fairways being cut with the high tech reel mowers.

I have Bermuda grass and have always been a Lawnboy guy. I have often wanted to try a reel mower but was hesitant to invest the money and not be satisfied.

My wife bought one for my birthday about a month ago. I have been using it ever since, and what a change in the yard.

I keep my blade sharp on the gas mower but it still leaves swirl marks and... more

The Mower Is Fine-adjusting The Height Is Another Story
I like reel mowers and decided to buy this one because of the good reviews. I "test" drove it and will be as fine as my previous one. HOWEVER, I'm trying to adjust it so it will cut lower and after buying a ratchet wrench and the necessary things to remove a dumb nut, I cannot loosen it. I am a female and cannot budge this thing. It is extremely frustrating. All I want to do is adjust it lower and I'm stuck. It's putting a real damper on having this.
Pros: Easy To Use, Very Difficult To Adjust Height

All Good Except!
I really like feeling a contribution in one small way to cleaner air but this sweet little mower does not cut the seed stalk of lawn grass here in Henderson, Nevada. Maybe I need to lower the blades?

Good Product For The Money
The Great States Deluxe 5-blade Push Reel Lawn mower is a great buy. It mows evenly and pushes easily. One thing it does not cut is dandelion stems, maybe the blades could be sharpened more. Overall, it is a good buy.

Good Bargain
I received my mower the other day. It was easy to put together. I put WD-40 on it and it was as smooth as butter.

We had a dry spell. The grass was short and the weeds tall. Maybe I was doing something wrong but it wouldn't cut the weeds.

It is a great value. I never have gas and I decided to put less money where my mouth was. Nice machine.

Disappointment
I wanted a reel mower because I have no place to store oil and gas. I wanted to be environmentally friendly and have a quiet lawn mowing experience. I got this mower through Sears. It cuts short stuff but leaves anything taller than about 3 inches. The lawn looks worse after mowing because the tall stuff looks hacked up but still standing tall. It's very noisy, even after putting oil on it. It makes the neighbor's dog bark constantly. The adjustment screws won't turn at all. It's very... more
