Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bonnie 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!

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by rasta 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tuna 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by TopRankedAmateur Great Product
The instructions were very easy to follow and I was done in no time. I bought my Scotts reel mower 4 years ago and it had never been sharpened since. It also got slightly neglected during a house move that left the blades rusted. After 5 minutes of cranking the blade with the sharpening compound, the rust was gone and the blades were sharp. The one vague area in the instructions was how to tighten the blades for better sharpening and cutting. I had to get the instructions for my mower out to understand the blade adjustment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pomufc 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Minnesota78 It works
My reel mower didn't have the same gear set up that the one in the instructions had. I therefore wasn't able to use the handle crank to turn back the reel. This wasn't a big deal since I figured out another way to back the reel up... but that was my only complaint.
The abrasive substance works well and my mower has never been sharper. The price was good too. I've seen similar products for twice as much.
