I thought this product was the best thing since sliced bread until I used it for the third time. The blades moved and it is extremely difficult to get them to cut well. If you are not extraordinarily mechanically inclined DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. The customer service is awful and the company does not offer a place to take the mower for adjustments. Please disregard my previous review. This mower is terrible!!!!! Again, unless you are a mechanical genius, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

We bought this when we moved house, and we were too busy unpacking to get around to assembling and using it for the first few weeks. So by the time we mowed, the grass was tall and lush and we were sure we would end up paying a lawn service because the mower wouldn't be able to deal. Boy, were we wrong - we had it on the lowest setting, and it munched straight through even the greenest, densest patches with relative ease. I have since figured out how to easily change the height (tilt it over so there is no weight on the back wheels, then pull out each knob to slide it to the number you want), and mowing is almost like just taking a walk. We have rocks, and while the mower has stopped on those a few times, the blades seem undamaged. It doesn't take corners as well as I'd like, but the balance is so good that it is easy to push up our slopes and I, a middle aged woman of average fitness, can carry it up and down stairs with little problem from one terrace to another.

This is the first mower I've ever purchased. It's been a joy to work with. Assembly is a breeze; I was able to get it up and going in about 10 minutes. I was fully expecting the front orange blade protector to be plastic, but instead its a strong metal plate; nice surprise. The height and handle adjustments are super easy to use. I've been doing two passes over my medium-size lawn, mostly for a "finished" look, but it does also help to cut down any straglers that the blades hit (I haven't yet taken the time to adjust the blades properly, so this might not be an issue once that is done). There are about 4 or 5 different grass types in my old lawn and this mower cuts them all well. I've had at least 5 people complement me on my choice of mower.

It came almost fully assembled and I have not had to touch the blades so far (two full cuts). I have a large back yard and this reel mower works really well. Goodbye to gas cans, oil, filters, fumes and noise. I am very happy with this purchase.

Assembly was a breeze. The adjustments for the height, are really easy. If you don't have thick plush grass, Stick to gas powered. When it comes to dandelions, and tall grasses this mower just pushes them over instead of cutting.

Great reel mower. Old one required 3 passes. This, just one and easy to push. Even got through 6" high grass. Just adjust the blades as per directions and you are good to go

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Njr685 Great mower!!!!
This mower is a great option for a smaller lawn although my lawn is large I can mow it in about 45 minutes. It is similar to pushing an old gas mower (one without the auto drive) as long as you don't let the grass go more than a week as I had done in this photo due to rain and sickness but it still cut through the high grass with some definite effort put forth. Overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone that has a small lawn and is willing to keep up on their grass by mowing weekly. It is high quality and seems that it will last for a long while with minimum operating costs (it claims that you only need to sharpen every 5 years)

Starting up my third season with this mower and I have to say I love it.
I'm a first time homeowner and I didn't have much cash left when we moved in so I got the cheapest Fiskars mower and my only regret is that I didn't get the best model as I assume it's even awesomer. I have a midsized suburban lot and this mower is all we need, I don't know why anyone in the neighborhood uses anything more. One time we came back from vacation while it had been super rainy at home and the mower bogged down in a couple tall thick spots, but i just raised the height setting, (which you can do in like 7 seconds!), and went over those areas twice. It's light and small, I hang it on a nail in the garage so it doesn't take up any space at all. I've got the grass catcher too, which is nice when the grass is longer or I'm going to have company over soon.
