    Very easy to assemble, lightweight, easy to operate-This ain't your grandpa's old push mower!
    This Scotts Reel Lawn Mower was easy to assemble. Seems from previous review, that the pre-assembly has been greatly improved. The entire unit is very lightweight, and easy to push which is great because my 5' 3" wife can use it! lol! The mower does have a very difficult time cutting tall grass. This was not a surprise, as the reel pushes down the tall grass and out of contact with the blades. For tall grass, you should adjust to the highest setting, mow in a variety of directions. Then you can set to lower setting and easily get a nice cut! SOLUTION: Mow regularly. It's much more effective, and way easier than waiting until it's TALL COTTON! Overall, we have a small yard and this will be a breeze. This seems to be a quality machine, and the price is right!

      It does what it's supposed to do. I've been following the directions, keeping all the cutting surfaces lubed, not letting the grass or weeds grow too tall, and it cuts very well. My 7 year old son even mowed a little with it.

      Good mower - does better than I expected!
      Just bought this, so these are only my initial impressions. Easy to put together EXCEPT for the 2 e-clips you have to use where the handle attaches to the mower. These are impossible to put on by hand. I finally ended up using the butt-end of a small screwdriver and a hammer, and tapped them onto the posts. That worked fine, but "no tools assembly"? I don't think so. Speaking of the e-clips - some reviewers had problems with the wheels falling off - one shows a photo with the wheel just set onto a peg, and he has to keep kicking them back on. Well, clearly those people are missing the e-clips and hub caps that are supposed to be on the outside of the wheels. So I spent a few hours mowing my lawn today -- I really can't wait to have my lawn in good shape so that all I have to do is walk behind this mower and listen to that lovely chk-chk-chk. It maneuvers really easily. But today was a real challenge--well, you can see the before pic. My grass was 10" long in places. I was very surprised that this mower was able to do anything with it, but it really did. I had to go back and forth and over the areas several times so it was very tiring, but it far exceeded my expectations. Obviously it's not intended to do this, but it managed it anyway. It did really well on the hills, and it cut right through long dandelions. It's a keeper.

          MUST READ!
          This cuts perfectly fine. Very clean cut on the grass blade. I have Zeon Zoysia and this is perfect. I keep my grass cut every week at 1.5 inches. Those who say this does not cut well are not using this properly. Read the manual and make sure all the blades can cut paper & spray WD-40 on it before using it. If you have sticks and stones on the grass and you run over them with the reel mower, you will damage the blades on it, and it will eventually not cut, no matter how much you sharpen it as this stuff puts dents on the blades, this is very important to remember. Now if you take care of your lawn and do not wait weeks in between cuts, this reel mower is a must. The grass in the picture I posted, that result cannot be achieved with a rotary mower, no matter how sharp the blade is. Rotary mower is not a clean cut, so it leaves the very tip of the grass brown, which affects the overall color.

            Fell Apart in 20 minutes
            Wheels are cheap plastic with cheap plastic ratchets connected to the mower blade axle. Furthermore, the wheels simply sit on the tips of the axle and have no room for cotter pins, no lugs; absolutely zero mechanical locking to keep the wheels from falling off. Horrendously, abysmally-disappointed in such baffling, truly unbelievably-poor craftsmanship. You should be ashamed to sell this. I cut the rest of my lawn with Fiskar hedge clippers and crouching down every 2 feet for 4 hours in the 97 degree heat. It was less-agonizing than trying to kick the wheels of your inferior mower back into place every 2 feet instead. Please either correct your terrible design flaw or stop selling these. They're terrible.

              It cuts my grass, but the tall grass it does not cut. Then the weeds along with the super long grass it does not ever want to cut; so I just pull it by hand but over all it is a good workout and it does cut the grass (just not all of it).

              This cuts like a scissor and clean-cut the grass. You feel connected to your grass when you use this machine. But, they may not for everyone, if there are lots of roots, leaves, or bushes in the lawn the blades get stuck and you have to remove them before mowing again. If you have a clean yard with no debris this is a fun activity. Also, you will need a bit of upper body strength too. I recommend this over the plastic electric mowers.

                A Cut Above
                I got the Scott’s Elite 16 mower recently, after growing tired of dealing with the batteries on my electric rotary mower. I was initially a little worried about the time investment I was taking on, due to the 16” width of this unit, but I’ve been getting through my yard more quickly with this than I did with my old powered mower. More on that in a little bit. I was also shocked to learn that a gas-powered mower, over an hour of use, puts out the same volume of air pollutants as 20 cars operating for the same time. I liked that there pretty much isn’t a ‘greener’ way to do yard maintenance than with one of these babies. First off, a few preliminaries. My house sits on a 1/4 acre lot, so my yard(s) isn’t particularly large, nor is it small; think average suburban yard here. It’s recent construction, so my trees are still small, and sodded with Bermuda. I use a lawn fertilization service, so there are hardly any weeds to speak of, I’ve been battling with a little nutsedge in the front yard this summer, but that’s grist for a whole different review. Assembly of the mower was a breeze; it’s basically 4 handle pieces that you bolt together, and attach to the base unit. About 10 minutes (a pair of needle-nose pliers to install the retention clips for the base of the handle is helpful) is about all it took to get this thing ready for its maiden run. I did a quick check of the alignment of the base blade by cutting an inch-wide strip of paper, and inserting it between the reel and the blade and hand-turning the reel to see if it cut the paper cleanly, which it did, from edge-to-edge, so no adjustments of the flat blade was needed before I got started. YMMV, so it’s still worth it to check the factory alignment before use. If you’re unsure how to do this, there are a ton of videos out there on the tubes that demonstrate maintenance on these reel mowers. I also moved the back rollers up (which lowers the blades) to their highest setting; an adjustment achieved via two bolts that hold it to the back of the frame. There is an additional adjustment where you take the wheels off
