Rated 5 out of 5Â by Zooks Does the Job!
I needed a lawn mower for my backyard, which is a fair size but still in the grass-growing stage (i.e., there's still a lot of dirt). I was very skeptical about buying an old-fashioned reel mower, but the display was on clearance for just $50. Took it home, tried it on thick grass over 6", and it worked great. I couldn't believe it! I am very happy with my purchase, but I don't know if I would pay over $100 for a person-powered mower. Still, it's the perfect choice for the environmentally-conscious, for low-maintenance types, or for those with not a lot of storage space.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PoleBean Works better than any rotary mower
I don't know what the other reviewers are complaining about. They must have it adjusted wrong - see owners manual.
This thing is not hard to push at all and it cuts SO well.
Sticks and other debris will stop the blades but picking up before you mow isn't a big deal after the first time.
Back to the cutting SO well part... Really, very smooth cut, I actually didn't know the mower could make such a big difference. It looks like a golf course. Also, I kind of hate to say it because I've dreaded mowing since I was 7 years old.. but it's actually kinda fun. No engine noise, no gas smell... Just watch your toes, those blades spin FAST

Rated 5 out of 5Â by none Easy to use, yard looks great, economical
My son put it together in ten minutes, nice and sturdy, cuts the grass great, quiet, no gas or cord, just push it and go. I have a small yard and It's perfect for what I need it for. Just rinse off the blades after use let it dry, hit it with some WD40 and its ready for the next time you use it. I like it! Also I received it when they said I would receive it, very happy all around.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sher I LOVE THIS MOWER!!
Very fast shipping! I got this mower to replace my gas lawn mower because I only have a very small yard (10' X 15'). Took it out of the box and it was ready to go in less than 10 minutes. It cut through some very long grass with barely any effort. I have mixed grasses so some patches I had to go over a couple of times but it was no problem to roll it back and forth, it rolls very smooth. Things I like most are that it's quite, rinses easily with a hose, light enough to carry and doesn't take up much space to store. But most of all my favorite part about this mower is no more exhaust. All you smell is fresh cut grass!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by andrew excellent product
i purchased this item because i think it's silly to spend money on gas just to keep my yard in shape. it takes a little more effort than a gas powered mower, but you don't smell like exhaust, it looks better and it's cheaper. the best part is, i did research and these reel mowers are made in America, in a factory that produces 700-900 of them a day, at the same price as the chinese made scott's version. if you're concerned about the environment, your wallet, gas prices and having a nice lawn, this is the product for you.
