Customer Questions & Answers

Is assembly required? I can't put anything togther.

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, but only a little bit. You need to put on the handles and a guard, I think. It took me five minutes, tops.

Can you get a grass catcher for this mower?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes you can but I prefer to mulch to put the nutrients and moisture back into the grass.

can the blades be sharpened? where? how?

Asked by: Anonymous
From the owner's manual at Sharpening the cutting blades When the mower is properly lubricated and adjusted, sharpening should not be necessary for several years. However, the following steps will allow you to do the procedure yourself at relatively little expense. • Remove the “E” rings, wheels and pinion from both sides of the mower (refer to figure 7). • Remove both pawls from the rectangular slots in reel shaft and reverse their positions (refer to figure 8). • Reverse the placement of the pinion gears. • Place the left pinion on the right end of the reel shaft and the right pinion on the left end of the reel shaft. Replace the wheels and “E” rings. • Spread a thin layer of lapping compound on the front edge of the reel blades. • Adjust the cutter bar so that the cutter bar blade has light but firm contact with the reel blades across the full width of the cutter bar (refer to figure 9). CAUTION: Do not overtighten the adjusting screws, as this could damage the cutter bar. Both screws must be tight on the final adjustment. • Push the mower backward on a smooth surface (such as a sidewalk or paved driveway). Continue to do this until the reel blades rotate relatively free and front edge of the cutter bar blade is polished. • Remove wheels; reverse pinions and pawls so that the beveled edge of the pawl is on the right. CAUTION: Clean any grinding compound or debris from the cutter bar blade, reel blades, pinions and pawls. Lubricate axle and pinion with a light film of wheelbearing grease and replace wheels and “E” rings. NOTE: It is recommended to use and industrial or valve lapping compound between 100-240 grit. This is usually available at an industrial or automotive supply store. If professional sharpening is required, consult your local yellow pages for lawn mower repair services.

where is the Scotts 14" mower, or any of the push mowers made?

Asked by: Anonymous
They are made in China. They used to be made in Indiana, but now it is China.

Customer Reviews

18 in. Deluxe Reel Mower Nonelectric is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what they all say... I agree with most of the reviews I read on this before purchasing the reel mower, with a couple of exceptions. 1) It cuts well and evenly, 2) It is light so it's easier to maneuver than a gas-powered push mower, 3) It does not cut tall grass and it does jam on sticks etc 4) Some reviewers said it's impractical on steep slopes, but we have a 1/2 acre yard with some steep parts and I found it easy to use on the hills because it's so light, 5) I have mowed the lawn every week since getting this, and it's not a chore as it was with the gas mower (plus I don't get covered in dust and ants). 6) The only thing I'd add, is that the height is controled by adjusting a plastic bar in a metal bracket. On the tallest setting (2 3/4 inches) there is very little contact area and the plastic bar wore through, so I have to keep it on a lower setting where it is stronger. 7) It is very easy to adjust and use. Not needing gas and oil actually made more of a difference than I expected. It's quick and easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works better on a nice even lawn Putting it together was quick and it's not very heavy, so I can lift it up easy enough. I found it easy to manage but I will say the bar in front does push longer grass down before the blades can get to them so you have to go over it a few times in different directions. I think if you have a nice even lawn to begin with, it would work better. I just bought my house and the lawn was in rough shape but it's too small for a big gas mower so I'm going to keep trying the push reel mower. Also, it was noisier than I expected it to be but I added some oil and that seemed to help a little. If you're looking for a reel mower, I would recommend this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much plastic in the critical parts Just bought this yesterday and I have to return it. The grass I was cutting was a bit high, but with some effort I was able to mow through it. I expected that, and was actually impressed that I was able to do it. However, the piece that holds the wheels allowing you to adjust the mower height are made of plastic. This happens to be the same spot where a great deal of the force is applied. What happened to me was the plastic started turning into the metal, which destroyed it on the left side. This meant I had absolutely no control over the height of the mower on the left side, making it even harder to finish mowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this mower I just used my 18" mower yesterday. I must say that I am very impressed. My yard looks very good. I took pictures and showed other people and they said it looks good. I have a pretty big yard, too. It is much easier to push than the normal push mower. It cut my grass easily. I did have to go over a few areas but I didn't mind. With a regular push mower, you have to do the same thing. I feel real good about it. I was very skeptical at first but it exceeded my expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yay! People-Powered! Well, my husband & I argue over who's turn it is to use this because we really like it. We've had this for almost a year now. With thick, established St. Augustine, I thought this might be a little tough to push - Just don't let your yard grow TOO tall. I am 50 y.o. female, weighing 115lbs. and can push this fine in my approx. 200 s.f. yard. Bet I could push it even better if I quit smoking! We clean/oil our blades after every use with vegetable oil right from the kitchen - going TOTAL green with no yucky, toxic grease/oil/gas smells. Love the 18" width and we keep our cutting height at about 2.5 inches. Best of all, our grass LOVES it with it's sheer scissors cut instead of a PULL/SUCK/WHACK from our 15-y.o. gas mower. It's like our yard says "AHHHHHH! Thank you!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very satisfied customer I was prepared to return this if I was not satisfied, but I love it! I have mowed my lawn 8 times so far and it is easy to push and cuts well. Some claim that these will not cut tall grass but I had no trouble cutting a few patches that were nearly one foot tall. Please note that this is a review of the Scotts mower purchased through Home Depot, a few years ago I purchased a reel mower at Menards and it was such a piece of junk that I donated it to Goodwill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small, weedless lawns I bought this last fall and wanted to try it before reviewing it. I've used it about a dozen times now and overall I really love using it. Pros- easy to push, lightweight, virtually maintenance free Cons- tall weeds escape it, stopped easily by yard debris This thing pushes as easy if not easier than a comparable motor mower, but it's silent. The cool factor is high. I always get nods and smiles when people see me using it. All of my neighbors have asked to use it just to check it out (except my older neighbor who had no other choice as a kid and bad memories). It maneuvers easily and can be picked up one handed if that is ever necessary for any reason. The only maintenance it requires is every couple of times you use it, you will need to coat the blades and cutting surface with ordinary vegetable oil. If the blades ever dull, I'm sure I'll have to find somewhere to get them sharpened. Also, the deck is adjustable for a very wide, precise range of heights. Unfortunately, it does have some negatives which is why it only gets 4 stars. Taller weeds or really thin weed grasses tend to not get cut. If you have a very patchy or uneven lawn, this may not work for you. Also, if you have lawn debris like twigs or pine cones, be prepared to be stopped every time you hit one, or to rake/vacuum your lawn prior to mowing every time. Basically, if you have a large lawn and are debating on this or a self-propelled, get the self-propelled mower. If you are debating between this and a regular mower, I would suggest trying this one. It's cheaper, easier to use, quieter, cooler, and better for your lawn and the environment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good & a workout too I read a lot of good reviews of the Scott's 20-inch mower online and am glad I got the 18-inch one. It's still heavy and quite a workout for me-- a short woman, middle aged, 110lbs. First of all, the instructions were sort of confusing and I assembled part of the handle wrong at first. It took about 20-30 minutes of mild annoyance to finally get it together. The handle seems a little shaky, like it could be made sturdier or made in one solid piece instead of multiple parts screwed together. I hope it lasts. It was fun and exciting to cut when the mower moved smoothly, but I constantly got "stuck" where it wouldn't keep moving forward. I had to lift/move/turn the mower and re-mow the same areas of grass to get everything cut uniformly. This won't cut longer blades of grass or weeds that are over 5 inches high, so you'll have to either find some other way to cut the taller blades, or keep running the mower back and forth over them, hoping to catch the tips at the right angle. I am satisfied with this and happy it didn't cost too much and is good for the environment. There's also a sense of accomplishment in cutting your own lawn and getting great exercise at the same time. It can be fun, but you will be tired too!
