Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 77 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice mower easy to assemble, easy to use, the grass catcher bag is easy to fit onto the mower, fills nicely and empties very easy/. Plus there is more room in my shed now. October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shiny new retro-style hand mover! Designer alert!! This is a beauty to look at and use. Dark green enameled reel, sharp blades, smooth operation, easy to put together- perfect if you value style AND function. AND it's made in USA! November 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower but handle instructions were off! I'm a 54 y.o. woman who follows instructions as written cause I'm not that great at putting things together. The instructions say to screw handles together before attaching to mower. Do not tighten screws all the way until you attach to mower or you won't get it on. Don't know why the instructions don't say it cause I was stumped as to why I couldn't attach! Searched the Internet for a visual or some sort of help, found nothing. Finally figured it out and started mowing my 5" tall grass....love it! My yard is flat with no rocks or twigs. So I'm happy for now. July 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great item This unit was easy to assemble. Using it was awesome. After a few times I got the knack of right height to have the handle to keep the catcher from coming off. I actually enjoyed using this item. I am 68 yr male, average height and weight. Brought back lots of memories when I was a kid. September 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Sastisified Very easy to assemble. I was surprised how fast the blades moved. If you cut your lawn every 2-3 weeks you will have no issues. If you wait for your grass to grow long, it will take you 3-4 pass overs to get the job done. Perfect mower for small lawns August 26, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for camp! Received this minus one of the handles. Called the phone number provided and they sent one out immediately. Easy to put together. Cuts grass very well. Just need to make sure to rake first to get rid of pine cones and sticks, which will get stuck in the blades. As others have mentioned, it doesn't really do weeds - just sort of knocks them down temporarily. Works great for our little patch of grass at our camp. August 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to push for an old lady Most people these days have the gas or electric powered lawn mowers. This was not going to work for me as my yard has alot of roots half above ground. It was much easier to just do the push lawn mower and not worry about breaking the blades or drive shaft. My yard is not huge so I'm good in what I chose under my circumstances. July 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent mower. Are you kidding me? This thing cuts my small lawn like nobody's business. I was hesitant to buy a manual reel mower, but for $99 it was well worth the trial run. I have a small 400 sq/ft bermuda lawn and this mower gives it a quick and even trim every time. I like that it's easy to store and that I don't have to mess with gas and oil. I do have to get the trimmer out to get close to the curb and under the fence just like I would with any mower. This one's a keeper! June 16, 2015
