While mowing the lawn the grass goes everywhere but into the bag. You need to rake after mowing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tman Had to return this mower
I got this mower a couple weeks ago to mow my new lawn. It's a small parcel of grass so I thought this would do the trick and give me a little weekly exercise in the mean time. The first time I used it was the grass' first cutting, and the grass was long. It took some effort, but the mower did it - this type of mower isn't really made for real long grass. During this the grass catcher just was overwhelmed and kept coming off, so I removed it and raked the clippings.I figured it would work better when the grass was at a more normal height.
Today I got it out for the 2nd mowing and hooked the grass catcher up. Just like many have said it kept falling off, so I removed it again, thinking I would come up with my own fix for it later. Just as I was finishing, the reel locked up. I figured I had hit a small stick or something and tried clearing the reels several times. But it just kept locking up. So I took a closer look and discovered one of the blades had bent slightly at the end and was directly impacting the strike bar.
There was nothing in the grass that I could see which could bend the reel, so it's a little mystery why this happened. But with the grass catcher falling off constantly and now this, I took the mower back. Too bad, as I liked how light it was and the basic design, but I'm now rethinking the whole thing. I may decide to get another reel mower for the exercise and the great lawn finish it produces, but I do have to say stopping for every little piece of mulch that found its way onto the lawn is a downer. Supposedly reel mowers are quite prone to this, but I don't remember this happening when cutting my lawn with a reel mower as a kid!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Incognito Inadequate performance
Used on St Agustine grass, once assembled which was quite easy, went to mow some turf. I found it difficult to push. It does get stuck frequently with gras clippings and also when terrain is a little uneven. For a small patch I had to go back and forth several times. Long blades of grass or weed were not cut but bent down. It cuts too low at it highest setting. After half an hour work. Ended up returning it to store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CambridgeRatMom Old-style lawnmower!!
Everybody thinks I'm crazy for using a MANUAL lawnmower for my little plot of land. I love it because I get a real hands-on experience when mowing. I haven't had it very long, but so far I'm very happy with it.
* It was easy to assemble--it took about 15 minutes. And the directions were actually good.
* It's easy to maneuver
* The grass clippings catcher is easy to take off and put on
* the height adjustments can be made quickly and easily on-the-fly
* It doesn't require gasoline or oil or much maintenance (cleaning and oiling)
* It's quieter than all those noisy power mowers!
When people give it only 4 stars for features, I don't understand. This little machine has everything a hand mower needs to have! That gets 5 stars.

Very cheaply built, does not mow our grass well at all, and leaves a lot of pieces uncut. After multiple adjustments per the manual I have to go over the same spot 3 or more times to cut all of the grass.
Do not buy this, save yourself the time and money that I wasted.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SA Okay mower
Not the best. Was easy to assemble, but worked suboptimally. When I tried mowing my lawn, the bag immediately came off, as previous reviews have said, so I don't bother with it anymore. Also, leaves a lot of stray pieces of tall grass even after going over the same patch multiple times. Gets the job mostly done, and is light-weight and easy to maneuver. Not very quiet, but I'm glad I don't have to get gas or electricity for a mower that is likely to be heavy for me anyway. Okay but probably would recommend getting something else.
