Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by winteriscoming Not what I expected.
This isn't your Grandpa's mower you remember when you were a kid. Here were the biggest issues for me: 1) They say the grass bag is expected to pick up 90% or so of the grass clippings... No way, more like 90% of the clippings get left on the lawn. Where the bag clips onto the more would keep coming up, and not allowing the grass to settle in. Quite annoying. 2) If you went to fast, the mower would "skip" over the grass and not cut it. You have to go just the right speed.
This mower might make sense for someone that has a bigger lawn than I do. But I needed a little more accuracy. I could have lived with it if the bag actually picked up the grass. That was the major reason I returned this mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Padrecito A good mower for smaller lawns
Bought this based on reviews and the Manufacturer's brand. It is a well built mower, easy to assemble. Only issue to date is the catch basket - none of the grass gets shot into the basket - it all goes up as the blade comes round and under. So, gave up on the basket and rake the clippings up - only 260 square feet, so not an issue for us but might be an issue for some. Otherwise, would recommend. Just remember, its "human powered" so once you get momentum, do not cease. In other words, once you get it moving and cutting, keep it going! It's the way it's designed and is not too hard to push across the grass.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carlton good to a point
This destroyed the weeds and clover i had in my yard. Unfortunately, it was ineffective on the long grass.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SC Did not work at all....
I bought this because i thought it would be good for our small backyard. This mower only laid the grass down. It did not cut it at all. I ended up returning it a couple of days later.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EnvironmentalGardener Excellent environmentally friendly mower
There was very little assembly. It adjusts to a wider range of heights than my cumbersome gas mower and doesn't stink up the garage with fumes. There is no need for hearing or eye protection. This thing is great! I can mow late without waking up neighbor kids and more comfortably since I'm not wearing safety equipment. I did it late one evening in sandals just because i could! And I can do the small paths of grass with less effort than starting up the gas monster. One small benefit that's personal to me is knowing it was built about fifty miles from where I was born. Maybe it was built by a relative, now that is cool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cox Worked great!
I have a very large yard which is all Bermuda. We have always cut our lawn with a large rider but never liked the heavy mower on the yard. We purchased this reel mower and love it! It took me several passes to learn the feel and to keep a good pace but love the finished product. It will be my bi-weekly workout for the summer!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LAW55 Does what it is intended to do
The mower itself cuts the grass, as is the intention. It must be sharpened after each use, even though it is not encountering rocks or other non-grass debris and it will not cut the weeds if they are higher than the grass. The grass catcher was a waste of money. The grass barely goes into it and, when it does, it sits right on the edge and eventually causes the mower to clog and stop turning, forcing me to stop and clean the mower out.
In all, I am glad to have this and not the stink of gas in my garage. It is a work-out, especially on the slight incline in the back yard!

It does it job, however it get stuck all the time. The Basket is not worth the extra money.
