    Takes some getting used to

    Customer review by Pikkewyntjie

    One thing I would say to anyone who gets a reel mower is to be patient and to take the time to work with it. Not only does it take some upper body strength, but you also need to develop a technique. The biggest problem I have had is getting the wheels to turn. Sometimes the mower just skims over the grass so the blades do not turn. This has been really frustrating. Tall grass and weeds are another problem because it just knocks them down instead of cutting them. If you go back and forth from several different angles, you will get them, but they might also wrap themselves around your mower axle, which can be a pain to clean out. Be sure to wear gloves to keep your hand from getting nicked. Like reviewers have said here and elsewhere, the grass catcher is pretty much useless and just gets in the way. But it does have its advantages. No more spilling gas or nasty emissions. My 12-year-old son, who is far from athletic, is learning to use it and he is building up some muscles in the process. I am happy I bought it, but I wasn't so sure at first. Like I said, it takes some getting used to.

    I'm a 42 year old woman, overweight, have asthma and fibromyalgia. If I can push this thing, anyone can! My lawn was really high since I had just bought the house and had no lawn mower yet. My 12 year old put the mower together for me in short order. He had no problems doing it, but I will say, he's very handy. He didn't quite have the height to get this going with the grass being so high (he's short), so I said I'd do the first go round. It was not a problem. Yes, it took some getting used to, and yes, the tall grass was a challenge at times, but I'll direct you back to my first sentence! Once the grass was short, even my tiny 10 year old (more like the size of a 7 year old, honestly) was pushing it about, catching the missed spots without a problem. Loves: No gas, no fumes, no loud engine, little maintenance. Dislikes: Hard to push in tall grass, but if you keep it short, it's a breeze. Unknowns: Grass catcher. Didn't bother with it today. What you need to know: It's going to take some getting used to, but environmentally, it's worth it, and for what you save on gas, isn't a learning curve a small price?

    It is a good throwback to the 1950's push mower. My husband sharpened the blades and it cuts like a charm. Out of the box it did not cut the grass well. Get blades sharpened and you have yourself a good push mower. Also, forget the grass catcher, it is more trouble than it is worth and very flimsy. However, for the price and for people on an exteme budget like we are on, it is a good purchase.
