Customer Questions & Answers

Do you stand behind this??

I have used this just over a year and seem to have stripped the drive gears. I have tried to contact them but they don't call back or respond to my e-mail. This came with a four year warranty.

Customer Reviews

Evolution 18 in. Easy-Push Reel Mower with Adjustable Grass Management System-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't be happier This mower has been a pleasant surprise in every respect. Came out of the box and went together in seconds. No tools required. At only about 30 pounds, it is so light and easy to maneuver. Yet it is very rigid and strong when you need to bare down on it. Cuts my lawn great and does it without all the noise, fumes and a cloud of dust. The grass bag is oversized and there is a positionable panel that you adjust to make sure the clippings go in the bag. You can also remove the bag and mulch, using the adjustable panel to direct clippings down into the lawn. Reel mowers probably aren’t for everyone, but I am hooked. I love the sound of mowing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT ! Having mostly St. Augustine grass and weeds, I was discouraged by many to not buy a reel mower, but had to give this a try because of the reviews previously posted. Out of the box, and together in a snap, no tools required. I have a 50'x150' piece of property and did 1/2 the back yard in 30 minutes! it cuts like a hot knife through butter, even tackled the weeds and extra long grass. So easy to push, and the grass catcher really catches all the grass! It's extra large so I don't have to dump it every pass of the yard. I have limited mobility on my one shoulder, so starting a regular gas mower is out of the question. With this, I just have to walk. What a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A better way to mow Was WAY skeptical of reverting to an old school mower like this, even after seeing my neighbors use them. Definitely do your research, they're not created equally. The Ellison has better gearing and pushes a lot easier and gives a cleaner cut. My back yard is small, but uneven and it powered through and looked well manicured when it was done. It also has a grass bag - key! Lots of the others don't. I actually look forward to mowing now. No fumes, no noise, no raking. Awesome product. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gas vs. Ellison Manual I live in an urban neighborhood with a relatively small grass lot. My gas mower recently died, and I thought I should give the manual version a try. For me the decision came down to reducing my carbon footprint, and minimizing the space in my already cramped shed. I must say at first I was skeptical about the performance of the Ellison manual mower. For me, time in the yard is time that I could be using for much more enjoyable activities. Half expecting that mowing with the Ellison would take longer than my prior gas mower, I thought there was a chance that I'd need to return this product after the trial run. I am happy to report back that I'll be hanging on to this little guy and tossing out the old gas guzzler. I was pleasantly surprised with the first spin through the yard for several reasons: 1) I was expecting a full workout with the manual mower. But the drive system is very smooth and requires less effort than was required for my gas mower. This is likely due to the fact that the Ellison Mower is very lightweight and has smooth bearings. 2) Cornering is a cinch. I used to chew up my yard with the gas mower when turning and reversing directions. The Ellison mower steers very smoothly and doesn't shred the turf. 3) Blade adjustability works great. I tried out a couple of height settings with the blade adjustment mechanism and found that my sweet spot is setting number 2. Setting 1 got stuck in high spots on the yard, and setting 3 was a bit higher than I prefer. It's very easy to switch between these settings. 4) The grass clipping bag works great for emptying your clippings into a yard waste bag. There are small hook features that are sized perfectly to keep the yard waste bag open when emptying in the clippings (see related pic). The one downside to this type of mower is that it seems harder to achieve the mowing "lines" that you can get with heavier gas machines. For me though, this is a very minor tradeoff, since my mowing lines have never been very good anyway. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase, and I would highly recommend it to others with a small yard looking for a compact, eco-friendly and functional mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I've used I’m kind of a lawn geek, so I know I am more into these things than most people. I am totally into how much better a reel mower cut is for the health of your grass, and I like not having the mess of gas and oil. So I have had two previous reel mowers, but I have been most impressed with this one. First, I can’t live without a grass bag and this one is the best I’ve seen. It has an extra large bag with an adjustable deflector that works to make sure the grass goes into the bag instead of all over you. During the dry season, when my grass is growing slower, I can also position this shield for mulching. The main structural member of the mower is an aluminum extrusion, so it is very strong, yet it is very light weight to push around. The 1-touch height adjustment is nice, and the handle is solid and comfortable. I don't really have any negatives to report. The mower is well built overall and I have been very happy with it so far. I think my lawn is happy too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not your daddy's pushmower Unable to pull-start my power mower due to a shoulder injury, I opted for the Ellison push mower to cut my St. Augustine grass yard. It's light and well-made and has a grass catcher. It does a respectable job so long as the grass is not too tall, as I found out when the first time I used the mower and the grass was almost 8 inches tall. I had to go over the lawn two or three times that day. When the grass has grown 1-2 inches, it works pretty well with one pass. It's not perfect, but it does a pretty good job overall. Also, it's not too heavy and it provides a pretty good cardiovascular workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really pleased! Very lightweight and easily mows through overgrown thick grass. I bought the Ellison mower that came in yesterday. I’ve never had a manual mower before but wanted a lightweight, eco-friendly mower that I could use to mow our hill-y front yard. I’ve always struggled with starting up a gas mower. I’m a lady that goes to the gym but I guess my cord-pulling muscles aren’t as strong as I’d like them to be. Not knowing what to expect, I’m quite pleased with the Ellison mower. It’s very lightweight, I can easily push it up hill, and I really like the mesh clipping catcher on the back. The clipping catcher is easily removed for dumping. Since I don’t get around to mowing as often as I should, much to the chagrin of my neighbors, I have a seriously overgrown lawn. I was surprised at the ease in which the mower went through my jungle of a backyard. Only in a couple of small areas, where there is a weird feathery grass, did I have to go over it twice. The only other problem that I had with the mower was that I ran over some hefty sticks and twice they got caught in the blades. All I had to do was reach down and pull them out, so that was no problem. After trying out the Ellison manual mower, I’m definitely a fan, and solemnly swear to cut my lawn more frequently. I was less tired after mowing the lawn, probably due to the mower’s lightweight design, and ease of cutting though grass. Goodbye gas mower!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Eco-Friendly Option I have a small flat lot and always found it to be a struggle to operate my old gas powered mower. Thats why after reading some reviews on this one, I purchased it. I was more than pleasantly surprised! Assembly was simple and required no tools. The different height selections are really convenient. The mower is super easy to operate and isn't more difficult than pushing a shopping cart. I just finished mowing the grass in less time than it took with my old traditional mower. There are some areas of my yard where I do go over twice but I think that is due to the grass type I have. I would recommend this mower to anyone! All and all its a fantastic product!
