Will this work on a lawn that is bumpy and uneven in places?

Asked by Emily September 29, 2020

Answers

No, this is best for level surfaces in my opinion. My lawn has a few low areas and this misses those.

What are the cutting heights?

Asked by Lawnboy July 18, 2020
3
Answers

Its basically none existent, my guess prob 2-3 inches, and it has to be picture perfect grass, no weeds or tall fury one that sometimes come out. It will just trim the tips and thats about it

How well does it cut wet grass? Maybe with a little morning dew on it, not after an actual rain.

Asked by GrouchyCat July 6, 2020

Answers

Do not do that. Best time is sunny, dry. If you cut wet grass actually grass’ll be killed and your garden look bad after that.

Does this mower work when pulled backwards?

Asked by Cassia July 11, 2019

Answers

It only cuts when pushed forward and even doing it the right way, performance is borderline.

How do you sharpen the blades?

Asked by Vee June 29, 2019
5
Answers

Scotts has a sharpening kit. I ordered it and used it on a different brand of mower. The kit comes with a handle and a special mixture that you paint onto the edges of the blades. You attach the supplied handle and use it to crank the reel, so the blades sharpen as they move past the plate because of the friction between the mixture and the metal. The kit comes with instructions, and I'm sure there are how-to videos online. When you're done, you wipe off the residue, detach the handle, and off you go.

is the handle quality or is it flimsy tube material

I ended up tossing this lawnmower before the first season was over. The grass catcher is very small and you have to empty it often. The weeds just laid down as the mower went over and popped right up again, so this was not an effective mower. The mechanism twisted in the frame, and I couldn't straighten it, so it wouldn't cut.

Can you give me the size of the box.

Asked by cres May 15, 2019

Answers

The box size that the mower was delivered in is 17 1/2 in. wide x 27 in. long. The box is 10 1/4 inches deep.

in my own experience, it cuts great at 3 inch height. Remember you don't want to remove more than a third of the grass blade at any one cutting. If the grass gets longer than that, you may have to cut and remove more than than and have a discoloration. It will heal.

I just bought this today, 09/05/2020 to reel mow my lawn that I over-seeded a couple of weeks ago. My battery/gas lawnmowers are too heavy for the job and might trample the young grass. So, using a manual reel mower is the way to go. I'm not expecting a quality cut on this reel mower. All I want is to cut the young grass. To my surprise, this mower did a pretty good job. Yes, there are stragglers. I simply ran it twice. Perfect? No but manageable, as far as I can tell. Please take note that I used the lowest setting for the height of cut. And my grass is more or less 3.0" tall. Overall, I'm happy to have this reel mower. And definitely of great use to my renovated backyard seeded with Kentucky Blue Grass.

Perfect for small lawns. Cuts extremely sharp right out of the box. Very comfortable grip. The height adjustments work very well too. The grass catcher is very simple to put on and take off. This mower went beyond my expectations.

Economical, Quality Product! There is a little assembly involved in attaching the handle and grass catcher. For the technically challenged people, I would recommend that Scotts put together a simple, short, video, that includes how to attach the grass catcher, as I found the written instructions somewhat confusing. This is a sturdy little mower that I feel would be ideal for those with small, level lawns. I purchased this mower with the intention of using it to supplement my riding lawnmower, hoping that it would be easier to manipulate around some of my landscaping, but due to the fact that my lawn is not level and consists of a lot of dips and lumps and bumps, it is not ideal for my situation. It is, however, a good backup mower to have on hand to cut the towering grass on the high points, and good for exercise!

Lately I hear homeowners engaged in a torturous debate: should I keep using my gas mower? Or should I get an electric mower? If electric, which one? Corded or battery-powered? The simple answer: None of these!! Instead get yourself a Scotts 20" reel mower. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I hear ya. Who wants to work so hard to mow a lawn. It turns out that some PR firms have done a number on the reel mower, probably to get homeowners to buy expensive powered mowers and tractors. The PR firms completely extinguished the memory of how great reel mowers are. Here are the PRO's: (1) Reel mowers are really light, which translates into !! a lot less !! effort, energy and time. When I used to use an allegedly "self-propelled" gas mower, it took nearly twice the time to mow my lawn as it does with the reel mower. The reason: "self-propelled" does not help you to turn your mower, especially 180 degrees. You end up effectively weightlifting with a substantial chunk of cast iron each time you make a significant turn. The end result is slower progress and more physical energy expended. I find now that I mow my lawn several times a week because the time and effort is so minimal. I can even push the reel mower with one hand, and hold a cup of coffee in the other, even when turning 180 degrees. Try that with your power mower. (2) Reel mowers are better for your grass. Power mowers effectively rip the tops of your grass blades, which also yanks on their roots and damages your grass, even if you blade is razor sharp (show of hands: Who regularly sharpens their mower blade? Who has **ever** sharpened their mower blade? I rest my case.). The telltale sign you are damaging your grass is the fibers that stick out from the top of the grass after it is mowed with a power mower. Reel mowers use a scissors action that clips the grass without yanking on it. My lawn is much healthier and looks like a golf course green now that I have been using a reel mower. (3) Reel mowers do not leave clods of mashed up grass that power mowers do. If you don't go back and remove these clods, they cover spots on your lawn and kill grass (since the grass is already badly wounded, it does not have much of a chance against the clods). With a reel mower, all the clippings are single strands that just fall down among the blades of grass, where they dry up and/or decay and feed your lawn. If you want, you can use a grass catcher so you can discard the grass clippings, but in my case I have not found it necessary to do this. (4) Reel mowers are fun! I was surprised to find how much fun it was to use a reel mower. (Like you, I was expecting to expend a lot more effort and time and drudgery. It turns out using a power mower is a lot more drudgery.). Besides being quick and easy, reel mowers provide a certain satisfying entertainment as you watch the clippings shoot up behind the mower (maybe it's just me...). (5) Reel mowers don't leave you covered in grass spatter and breathing dust and toxic gases and particulates. A primary reason I switched to a reel mower is that it became necessary to wear a surgical mask when mowing with a power mower. The dust and pollen had become unbearable, and even in the best of circumstances, my shoes and pants would be covered in grass bits. Not any more. After I use my reel mower, I can walk into the house with nary a snide comment from the wife regarding the trail of grass blobs. (6) Reel mowers are very quiet. No more need to wear headphones, although I do put on a pair to listen to music or the radio (which does not have to be turned up to hearing-damaging volumes to hear over the sound of a gas engine). The lack of noise is only a slight benefit to neighbors, since they've all have become accustomed to the sound of power mowers, which they now find is "normal". But try using a power mower at 7am on a Sunday morning... A reel mower -- no noise, no problem! (7) Reel mowers are good for the environment... and you.. A gallon of gas becomes about 20 lbs of carbon dioxide when it is burned. Over the course of a mowing season, you'll burn how much gasoline? And unbeknownst to you, you are breathing in a bunch of toxic and carcinogenic exhaust as you walk behind your gas mower / drive your tractor. (8) Maintenance is easy. Every once in a while, the cutting edges need to be sharpened a bit. The process? Just use a bit of lapping compound, spin the blades a few times, and voila! sharp as a razor. Compare that to pouring gas, changing oil (show of hands: Who regularly changes their mower oil? Who has **ever** changed their mower oil? ), sharpening the blade (show of hands...). A few con's: (1) You need to make sure to first pick up twigs and branches littering your lawn under trees, as reel mowers cut grass, not wood of any significant dimension. (2) Reel mowers tend to not cut really tall blades, so you might find some tall stalks still standing after you've finished mowing. My solution? Just clip them with grass clippers. (3) You get weird looks from your neighbors who are still deep in the trance they were put in by the PR firms pushing power mowers. As you might have sensed, I really like using a reel mower. My bet is that you think you won't, and that when you try one, you'll never go back to gas. And you'll forget about your debate with yourself about whether to get a corded or battery-powered electric mower, and you will mow happily ever after with a reel mower.

Whatever you do, don't have this shipped, because cheap plastic does have a tendency to crack. I had this shipped because I don't have a vehicle. It arrived with one wheel cracked around the nut, so I contacted Home Depot and they send me two gray wheels. Of course, the new wheels look and feel like much better quality than the original orange wheel, too bad they didn't use this quality plastic the first time around... then again when the original wheels are made like crap, there's big profit in replacements, no? Sort of reminds me of my phone charger. So anyway, I can take it apart, pack it up in a box, ship it back and let the grass grow while I wait for a new one. Or, I can just keep going until the wheel falls off, while I come to terms with having a brand new mower that appears patched together with random spare parts. Which gets me to thinking... why are the spare wheels gray, when they only sell green and orange mowers?

The mower was easy to assemble, although some of the drawings didn't quite look like the actual product. I ended up not using the grass catcher. The way it hangs, I kept kicking it and knocking it loose. Maybe if it hooked to the handle on either side in two spots, instead of just one hook in the middle of the crossbar, it might stay in place better.I love the weight of the machine; it's a lot easier to push than my "walk-behind self-propelled" gas mower had become. Plus, it's a whole lot quieter. I wish it did a better job on some of the weeds, but overall it's great!

I really love this mower. I moved into a house in florida and was looking for a mower. My lawn is small (less than a 0.25 acres) so I thought a reel mower would be a good choice. Takes up less storage space and won't require fuel or charging. Not disappointed with my choice. this mower does a find and dandy job! Only issue is when I let the grass get a little tall or a stray weed grows faster than the grass. The blades wont get them. But it's not a big deal for me. I just quickly take my trimmer and cut high spots. this only happens a couple times a year when i'm busy and not able to keep up with the mowing. I could see this mower not being suitable for some people. Those with a big yard or sloped yard. You'll have trouble. But if youre like me and have a small yard this'll do the trick. And you'll get comments from all your neighbors from going "old school" with the reel lawn mower. A lot of fun to use. I don't use the grass catcher as it's a little clumsy but I prefer to mulch the clippings anyway. Also, another reason why i love this mower is the storage profile. Doesnt take up all the space of a gas or electric mower. But that's true for all reel mowers.

It's difficult for me to recommend, but I do like the mower. However, on it's maiden voyage, after 20 minutes of mowing, one of the small wheels came loose. That part of the mower comes pre-assembled, so I wasn't concerned. I got this mower because I prefer a reel mower and now that I am retired, I hate to have my husband come home after a hard day at work and have to mow. So today, he came home and had to fix my new mower. That being said, once it was fixed, it worked great.

This reel mower we purchased is awesome! No fumes from gas, no residues from pollen, grass or sticks flying up hitting us or getting into our nose. No loud annoying noises or vibrations from this Scott's mower! Only one con and not even one to really affect the outstanding quality of none pollution & no noise pollution which outweighs the fact that little sticks do get stuck in the blade and it won't mow until the little stick is removed. However we have a lot of trees so this is to be expected. I highly recommend this product!
