I know reg. push mowers are too hard to push for an elderly person, but reading the description and reviews for this mower, it sounds like it would be easy to push for an elderly person. Do not want to purchase if too hard to push. Would rather pay a little more for a reg. elect mower. Help me out w/this decision please.

Answer: 
It is definitely a push mower and takes strength to push it in thick grass, not as easy as I thought it would be. If you have blade grass may be easier. But you still can't let it go more than a week between mowings. I will probably be returning as it is harder to push than I thought it would be.

This is NOT a "push" mower, as we used to call them. This is powered by electricity, although you do have to push it, too. Push mowers, now called "reel" mowers, have no power at all other than your own. If your yard is flat and in good condition, the Fiskars StaySharp PLUS mower is partly self-propelled, a true push aka reel mower, and I could push it fine (I'm 71) as long as the grass was short and ground level. It would not cut dandelions after they went to seed, though, so it went back (Home Depot doesn't carry that particular model anyway, although they carry that brand and line).
This is less than half the price and more than 10 lbs lighter. I haven't used it but am considering it because it has good reviews, is lightweight, and I'm sure I can handle it. My concern is whether it will last and whether the blade is steel and has to be sharpened periodically or something else and must be replaced, instead. Read Less

This is not a self propelled mower. You have to do the pushing, thankfully however this mower is very light weight and no one would have a problem operating it. You do have to be aware that it is plugged into an outdoor extension cord, so you have to manage the cord as well.

Answer: 
I dont think so, only if the grass is too high or your setting for the tires is really low. Also if you have divits in your grass that would pose a problem. In order to turn on the blade you have to tilt it up while pushing a button. Maybe that will pose a problem. Hope this helps.

The 100ft, 16 gage cord should be OK for a 12 amp motor.

The 100ft, 16 gage cord should be OK for a 12 amp motor.
Officially, you should be using 14 gage at 100 ft, but there is some safety margin built in.
A longer or thinner wire cord has more electrical resistance and will deliver a lower voltage to the mower than what is coming out of the electrical outlet the cord is plugged into.
When an electric motor (like in your mower) is driven by that lower voltage, it draws more current.
It will certainly draw a lot more current if something jams the blade
while power is turned on.
If it draws too much current, it will smoke the motor.
Be careful that the blade is always free to rotate.
If it gets jammed, turn off the mower and unjam it immediately.
If you want to use a cord longer than 100ft, you should use a thicker wire . . . 12 or 14 gage.

Answer: 
You need a cord that is rated for the 12-AMP motor. The longer the cord the less AMP that it will support, that is why the bigger AMP version has a shorter max cord. You have to use the right cord with any electrical mower or it will not work right.

A 50 foot cord should be fine. If you need a longer cord , then maybe your yard is too big for this mower.
This is a mower for small grass areas around patios. This is not a regular size yard lawn mower.
This mower needs to be treated like you treat your vacuum cleaner which it closely resembles.Jimmy

My GUESS is that if you had a small lawn of 2500 square feet and only one receptacle, then you might want to consider the 13 amp mower. If your lawn would be larger, then you would need several outlets in specific locations if you wanted to stay with larger cut mower. A good question and you may want to call the manufacturer.

That is the max 14 ga feet of extension cord you can use. The mower is good for up to 1/4 acre which is approx 11,000 sq ft. A square 1/4 acre lot is 100' x 100' or 10000 sq ft.

Answer: 
It is electric, so it requires an OUTDOOR-rated electrical extension cord, and it is very important that you get the correct gauge (thickness). That depends on the length of cord you need, so check the manual. You could damage or ruin the motor otherwise. I think it's 14/3 for a 50-ft cord and 12/3 for 100-ft cord (smaller #s = bigger thickness/gauge). But do NOT take my word for it. Check the manual. Read More

These is not a mower for front & back normal size yards , but if you have a small area of grass next to a patio that needs special treatment to look nice, this is a special use mower. Don't abuse it, keep it clean , put in garage , use a dust broom to clean, no hose cleaning, & no mowing when grass is wet.
This is a special use mower that anyone can use like vacuuming a carpet & fits my needs& does a good job if you follow my advice above. Jimmy

Answer: 
The mower (Mow Joe) comes with the attachable bag - but it also comes with another option: a side exhaust device that shoots the clippings out of the way to the left! Both are included at no extra cost. I am delighted by the sideways diverter because I do not like to use the bag! Hope this helped. Both are easy to install and neither the bag nor the diverter MUST be installed to use the mower, though Read More

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible purchase We have a small lawn at our weekend/vacation house and currently use a push mower. It does an excellent job but must be used at least weekly and so we decided to try an electric mower so that we wouldn't have to make the trip quite as often. We knew it was not a high end product but this mower destroyed our previously gorgeous lawn with one use. The lawn was scalped, despite adjusting the wheels to their highest level. We returned it immediately and can only hope the lawn recovers before too long. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed! I have a relatively small backyard (850 sq.ft) and wanted a simple lightweight mower with little upkeep. This Sun Joe electric mower does the job. You can adjust the cut height by easily adjusting the height of the front and back wheels. The bag fills up quickly and I have to stop and empty it 3 times to mow my size yard. But it's so much better than raking up clippings using a reel mower. Great price and very happy with my purchase. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the price Pros: Very easy to use (once you get used to moving the cord out of the way) Lightweight and very easy to adjust the three height settings. Great deal for the price I paid. Easy to turn and roll. Cons: Grass catcher is sometimes hard to latch on. (I usually straddle the mower to slip it into the grove) To start the mower, you push a button and hold the handle down to keep the motor engaged. For someone with arthritis this could be challenging. If the handle was a little longer, you would be able to use two hands to keep the motor engaged. I like the bright green but so do the bees. Someone with bee sting allergies might want to avoid this model. September 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nope. Lasted 7 weeks; then the motor died. Before that, had to use it without the bagger as it filled far too quickly to be of use; then the machine would hurl gravel and other yard debis at the lower legs and ankles, since the grass diverter was in the back and not on the side. Painful, and No fun. Also, the cheap plastic design and toy like tires made pushing it a heavy chore, and the carriage was easily damaged by said yard debris. I don't recommend. However, the Home Depot team was amazing and made exchanging it for a different model--this one with a metal frame/carriage, a breeze. I am expecting the replacement next week. Great store, bad product. September 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower for the money I recently purchased my first home and have a VERY small yard. I did some on-line research to find a mower that was affordable as offered the features I wanted - electric, height adjustable, easy to store. This mower ticked off all the check boxes. I ordered the product on-line through Home Depot and it was delivered right to my door. Had I been think ahead about my enthusiasm to use the mower, I probably would have ordered a 100 foot exterior rated extension cord as well. I have no doubt that the was recommended when I was placing the order as Home Depot is quite good about that. Assemble took all of 15 minutes. It was a simple matter of setting the lower portion of the handle with two screws and the upper portion with two bolts. I was excited to cut the grass shortly thereafter! October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE THIS PRODUCT THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT. JUST LOVE IT. VERY LIGHT WEIGHT, VERY EASY TO USE. IT WAS A SNAP TO PUT TOGETHER. ABOUT 10 MINUTES. THIS IS A GREAT PORDUCT FOR SENIORS OR PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIS BECAUSE IT IS SO LIGHT WEIGHT. DOES SMALL AREAS WITH EASE. I BOUGHT IT TO DO MY DOGS 20 x 20' DOG KENNEL AND IT ONLY TOOK ME ABOUT TEN MINUTES. IT GETS VERY CLOSE TO THE EDGES SO I HAD TO DO VERY LITTLE TRIMMING AROUND THE FENCE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. October 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's small, it's light and easy to use. The little bag fills up quickly and if you don't use it it blows everything in your shoes. Other than that it's great, if it lasts for a few years. October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This little lawn mower is perfect for our small yard. The mower arrived in a very timely manner. It was easy to assemble. Love the grass catcher...ridding yard of weed seeds! It has 3 height adjustments which is fine for our yard. I'm a female in my late 60's and have had no trouble using this mower. I'm so glad I made this purchase. We no longer have to pay to get our lawn cut. June 7, 2016
