Customer Questions & Answers

Does this kit work on all reel mowers?

Asked by: Shorty
The lapping compound can be used to sharpen any reel mower, but not all mowers have a place to attach the crank to turn the reel manually. I had a Craftsman mower, and I could not use the crank with it. The lapping compound can still be used to sharpen the reel, but you have to take the wheels off the mower, remove the snap rings from the pinions, and rig the pinions to spin the reel backwards when the mower is pushed. Then you have to reassemble it, being really, really careful not to get any of the lapping compound in the pinion assembly, as it can wear out the parts quickly.

I seem to be missing something here. (or I'm just ignorant..) I don't see any "sharpener" included. Does it "self-sharpen" with the compound applied?

i.e., self-sharpen as you crank it. Thank you.
Asked by: Bugsy
The instructions are well-written. Put on the crank handle and turn backwards.

What is in the sharpening compound?

Asked by: Stephen
The sharpening compound is a car/truck engine valve grinding/valve lapping compound. Can be purchased at any automotive parts store for approximately $4.50.

Does the Crank handle fit Friskars reel mower?

I have StaySharp Max 18 in. Push Reel Lawn Mower (6201) and it got rusty. I would like to sharpen it up to return it to it's original glory. Does anyone know if this hand crank fits onto this model?
Asked by: Tiff
I have the same question. Anyone used this on a Fiskar's Reel Mower?

Reel Mower Sharpening Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Instructions, detailed and clear. Price of kit ($15.00) is less than cost of having it... Excellent Instructions, detailed and clear. Price of kit ($15.00) is less than cost of having it sharpened by someone else. Easy to do yourself. Takes 15 minutes. If you sharpen once a year, I think the compound will be enough to last 10 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easily restored blades to cut like new used this product on my great states mower and it did a nice job bringing back sharpness to the blades. the kit is very easy to use, it does require a little effort to crank the wheel, and a dull set of blades may require additional applications. the instructions are easy to follow and you will have plenty of product left over to use on further applications when the blades need sharpening again. also included in the instructions are directions to adjust the blades on your mower, which may also be needed to help you get the best cut. with this kit and just a minimal amount of maintenance, your reel mower should last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Easy to Use Sharpening Kit I have a Scott 20" reel mower that is great and gets lots of use. It was time to sharpen the blades, something I knew nothing about. This kit made it so simple - the booklet spells everything out easily for a beginner. There is so much compound I will get many sharpenings out of it. I sort of dreaded the prospect of something I wouldn't understand - that was not the case. The mower is sharp and ready to go. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super easy to use I am already bragging about this product to my friends and neighbors I have a seven blade reel lawn mower I used this on. I am happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mower sharpener Works well, simple instructions, only took a few minutes and it did sharpen the blades on my Scott's push mower (non-motorized). Shipping was free and it arrived within a few days or ordering. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for a Great States mower Worked for a Great States reel mower, included handle fit and everything. Bought mower second hand, instruction manual for sharpening blade was worth price alone as it includes instructions to adjust the cutting bar. Would recommend if you have a Great States (or sister model) mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's easy and it works! I am house sitting for a friend this summer. He has an old fashioned reel mower that has seen better days. I was browsing Home Depot on line and ran across this reel mower sharpening kit. Ordering was easy at my local Home Depot store. I had the kit in less than a week. The instructions were clear and simple. And that rusty mower now cuts the grass like it was new again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good low priced option for sharpening blades We bought our Scotts reel mower used almost three years ago. We had never sharpened the blades and it was getting to be pretty bad. I bought this sharpening kit hoping that it would solve the dullness problem we were having. The product itself is very easy to use. I was just a bit dissapointed in how dull my blades still were after one application. The product did sharpen my blades and they do cut my grass A LOT better, just not as good as I was hoping. It still has problems cutting the onions that are always popping up in our yard. For the money though, I would buy it again. Especially since there are many many uses out of just one tub.
