Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jane the best lawn mower
There's no horrible smell or noise. It cuts really well. You can get exercise in peace. It's so wonderful. I adore it. Have owned and used it for a year on a small lawn. IT does get stuck on sticks but that's no problem. For a $100 you can't beat it. T hank you home depot. Ordered online.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SeverelyDisappointed 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toni Excellent for small yards and very easy to push.
This push mower works great. Glad that I purchased it. Lawns looks very nice and neat after use. I would not recommend for large yards or hills but for flat surfaces you can't go wrong. Great excercise for legs and arms and I am 64 years old and a female.

I received the mower on the day it was promised. It was easy to assemble, which was only to attach the handle. It is also very easy to adjust the cutting height. This mower will last a lifetime.

Cuts like it should and made very sturdy. My wife uses this for exercise between my cutting with the mower

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skip 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!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin56 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kambien 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!
