Depending on the height of the tough grass or crab grass, the mower does a good job of cutting it. Grass over 5-7 inches in height may bend, rather than be cut cleanly, thus requiring several passes with the mower.

Answer: 
I decided to get a reel-type mower after our gas-powered, self-propelled mulching mower developed a major problem after years of use, and our trusted equipment repair person told us it could not be repaired. I bought two Scott's reel-type mowers, one with 22" blades in 2014 and a year later, one with 12" blades (after the 22" "scalped" and killed two narrow grass paths between some of our gardens).

I decided to get a reel-type mower after our gas-powered, self-propelled mulching mower developed a major problem after years of use, and our trusted equipment repair person told us it could not be repaired. I bought two Scott's reel-type mowers, one with 22" blades in 2014 and a year later, one with 12" blades (after the 22" "scalped" and killed two narrow grass paths between some of our gardens). Both reel-type mowers worked pretty well the first time they were used. After that, neither could cut an increasing variety of unwanted intruders that began to be a problem. The first year this happened, I just ignored the unusual grass-like weeds, applied Turf Builder and Turf Builder for weed prevention. The next year, the weeds had multiplied and for the first time in 30 years, many spots on our lawn didn't look good at all. I had to do major preparation and seed replanting on about half of our lawn. Here is what I learned from this experience:
1. You WILL need to do something about sharpening blades, because the quality of the cut appears to deteriorate after the first use. It may take a while to find someone to sharpen the blades on the reel-type. My repair person for the gas-powered mower told me they don't touch reel-type mowers. I finally found a business that sharpens reel-type blades that is about 35 minutes away, and I must bring the mowers to him - they do not do any sort of pick-up/delivery.
2. What I considered to be quality products did not cut some types of wiry, wide blade unwanted "greenery", which allowed those to put out seeds and multiply.
3. With the 22" mower there was no way to raise the blades enough to avoid the "scalping" of narrow grass paths.
4.The 12" mower fit on the narrow paths mentioned above, but it came pre-set at a very low blade height, and changing the height is not as simple as it is on the 22'. The 12" required time-consuming partial disassembling to change the blade height.
5. Mowing and re-mowing then hand-cutting/pulling the grasses that wouldn't let the reel mower cut it has increased the time it takes to mow and edge the lawn - from approximately 90 minutes with the gas mulching mower and edger to OVER THREE HOURS with the two real-type mowers
6. Get ready to rake! Changing from a mulching mower to these two reel-type meant that the lawn under four large Spring-flowering trees was left with thousands of dead, dried flowers when the flowering season ended. Large parts of the grass under those trees died from being smothered ball the dropped flowers. Too late in 2015 I figured out that the spent flowers needed to be raked up once they fell - something I never had to do with the mulching mower that mulched the spent flowers along with the mowed grass. This year I raked the lawn under the tree that shed the greatest amount of dead flowers, and the lawn did not change from how it looked before the flowers dropped. I didn't yet rake 'the lawn under the three slightly smaller flowering trees, but I have to do it soon because I can see patches of soil are forming with caked, dried dead flowers over the soil. There had been grass in those spots, but the dead flowers smothered and killed the grass If you previously used a mulching or bagging mower, you did not have to rake - do not forget to rake with any reel mower if you have trees that shed flowers or leaves. And, of course, if you mow when your lawn has gotten too high, don't forget to rake that, too.
Anyone want to buy two reel-type mowers? I'm going back to a mulching gas-powered mower.

Answer: 
You know, I consider myself a home handyman-type, but would not attempt that. The blades should be more or less self-sharpening. If you mess them up by mowing nails or something, I'd take it to a pro to have the reel resharpened. They probably have a jig and a special grinder for doing this. In all the years I used a push mower when I was a kid, I don't recall my dad ever getting it resharpened.

Answer: 
"Back Lapping" is recommended for reel type lawn mower blades. Just take off a wheel and use a crank or better use your electric drill to run the blades backward. You can just use valve grinding compound available from your local auto parts store and save money over the available sharpening kits , which are quite suitable for the purpose.

Hello Sam the Lawn Mower Man and thank you for question.
Reel (manual) mowers are best used for lots that are small - less than 1/4 acre in size – and preferably flat. Depending upon the slope, the slanted yard may not be a good candidate for this mower. (The higher the slope, the less likely.) The second yard’s size (3/4 acre) will definitely be a LARGE PROJECT for you. You will be spending a lot of time and physical energy mowing this lot.
You may want to consider a gas-powered mower that will be able to traverse the slope and help manage the larger lot. The Home Depot has a Walk-Behind Lawn Mowers Buying Guide that can help you find a mower that will meet the requirements for both yards. Check it out here: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/catalog/servlet/ContentView?pn=Walk_Behind_Mowers_Access&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 182 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If you want your mowing job to take 10x longer... I was really excited to buy this push reel mower, figuring it'd be perfect for our little yard. I went to mow the 1/4 of a 1/4 of an acre and it took me 5...FIVE HOURS to mow. Every twig stopped the blade. I had mowed once only to have to re-mow. And then repeat this for as many times as it took to actually get it even (probably 4-6 times minimum). It does not cut evenly. "YAY! It's simple, requires little to no upkeep, and is inexpensive" actually translated (in my case) "UGH. It doesn't barely do its job, let alone well." Waste of money AND time. Find another mower. Save yourself the frustration. August 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lightweight and does a decent job This mower is easy to carry, manuver and does the job. If you have a small fenced in yard such as a townhouse it is all you need. The handle is a little wimpy, like a fake child's mower but if the bolts are tight it holds up fine. August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy I have had this mower for some time now. It has not done a good job since I purchased it. I thought perhaps it would "wear in". After that didn't happen, I tried to return it. I was to late, past the 90 day warranty period. So I bought the sharpening tool for $15. That brought the quality of cut back to it's original performance, not good at all. This is the probably the worst product I have ever bought at Home Depot. It's cut is uneven and leaves tufts of grass uncut. My lawn does not look good after a mowing. DO NOT BUY!!! August 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good reel mower! I have never purchased a mower before so this was my first time really getting into it. It was between Reel and Electric. The quandry was the size of my lawn, which is very small given the housing development my home is in (cookie cutter homes). I couldn't justify hauling around or having to store an electric or gas powered mower. When researching Reel mowers there are a few key factors that need to stand out more. These are... 1. Number of Blades - 5 vs 7 2. Silicon lubricant for maintenance 3. Difficulty to push Let's talk about #1. 5 blades is fairly easy to find, and they are generally cheaper vs 7 blade units. That being said. The number of blades define how well the machine will cut the grass on the FIRST pass. 5 blade will absolutely cut the grass of many lengths and do AMAZING. BUT... when your grass is a bit longer you will need to do two passes to really get the cut you're looking for. 7 blade reel mowers remove the greater need for a second pass, although it still may happen. Let's talk about #2. The silicon lubricant should come with reel lawn mowers. It is a life saver and extremely easy to use. I haven't had my lawn mower for years but I notice it performs as if still right out of the box. Effort to utilize a reel mower is truly not difficult. It does take a little bit of getting used to, but no more than a gas or electric powered mower. You can go over hills with less than moderate incline changes. Bumps and divits are a problem for any lawn mower. It's simple and easy to use and really less than moderate exercise. Hope this helps! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value, Great Mower Pros: -Great for small yards -Easy to push -Cuts really well -Lightweight compared to a gas powered mower -Considerably quieter than a gas powered mower -Low maintenance so long as it's not abused -Very easy and quick to cut the grass so long as its not too tall -Adjustable height -Easier to store than a gas powered mower. Makes it great for people with limited storage space. Cons: -Not very good for tall grass. Anything taller than maybe 8 inches or so just gets pushed over by the mower and you'll have to take multiple swipes at it to cut the tall stuff. -Manual labor powered (For me this isn't too big of an issue because I don't mind it, but for some that may be a turn off) -The foam grips that come with the mower aren't that great. After my first use they have slid down and are very tough to try and get back up onto the part that I actually grab. Also they can be easily torn over time. one of the slid on grips that came with the mower was already missing a considerable chunk out of the handle right out of the box. -As a result of not doing well on taller and thicker grass, you have to go out and cut more often than you would with a gas powered mower. However, so long as you stay ontop of it and don't let the grass grow too much the mower makes quick work of the yard and allows you to be done quickly. I've made 3 cuts with this mower so far. The first time the grass had gotten out of control because the guy we used to pay to do it never got around to doing it in an acceptable time frame. So I had to spend a couple of hours knocking it down and going over it multiple times in multiple directions. This is not a fault of the mower, but a fault of allowing the grass to get too high before cutting it. The 2 cuts after that first initial cut however have been great. The mower makes quick work of the grass and it's super easy to push. It takes me 1 swipe for it to cut down and you hardly, if ever have to go back and do clean up swipes. The booklet says that the blades should stay sharp for several years so long as you don't get things caught up in the blades and take good care of it so that's a major plus. Overall, good choice of mower for smaller yards and people with limited storage space. Low maintenance, easy to use, and over all great value. It's already nearly paid for itself based on what I bought it for and what we usually paid our previous guy to cut it for. Highly recommended. August 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Assembled Poorly This product has some serious manufacturing defects. After it was assembled by me it would not cut any grass. Firstly, the blades scrape against the side of the frame. This requires the frame to be filed down to give it clearance. Secondly, the cutting blade was significantly out of adjustment. It cuts grass now, but not very well. August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Its okay Did the job but not sharp enough. I like that its a light weight and easy to push. You have to walk the same spot multiple times in order to cut the grass August 9, 2016
