Get a Close Cut with This 20 Inch Push Lawn Mower and Enjoy Your Good Looking Garden
McLane has manufactured high-quality, precision-cutting lawn and garden equipment since 1946. The McLane cut path reel mower 20 in builds on that tradition with a powerful reel mower that delivers outstanding results. It's suited for all Bermuda, St. Augustine and other well-maintained turf types. The gas-powered mower has a 4hp engine that requires less effort to operate than a manual reel mower. The Touch-A-Matic clutch controls and easy spin recoil starter make operation safe and effortless.
This 20 inch push lawn mower uses an induction heat-treated armor plate reel and bedknife to give you durable and dependable performance. The reel and bedknife use a shearing action to provide a clean, consistent cut — like a pair of scissors would deliver. The penetrating bedknife deters thatch buildup, helping your lawn breathe better and receive the water and nutrients it needs for strong root growth. As a result, your lawn will look and feel healthy.

Be aware it is 4HP

I just didn't want anyone to think you would get a 5.25HP engine as the previous reviewer thought. I believe Sloppy was mislead by the engine labelling, 5.25 Briggs & Stratton: 5.25 ft-lbs TORQUE. With it being 148cc translates into a 4HP engine.

Not suitable for intricate cutting

This may be a good mower for people with larger lawns and lot of straight line mowing. However, if you have an irregular shaped lawn and need fine trimming around flower beds and other areas this mower is just not suitable for the job. It does not turn easy, is heavy and hard to maneuver. I sold it for a huge loss just to get rid of it.

Bermuda lawn must!

This mower is quality and built to last. With all front throw mowers that cut low you have to be careful of rocks, wood chips, and low level lawns/high sidewalks. We had a new house built and the builder planted Bermuda. My old rotary mower couldn't handle the dense grass. After setting up my Mclane it powered through the thick thatch. I did nick the sidewalk and through the alignment off but it only took five minutes to realign. The power with this mower is sufficient for regular yards (10'000) sq ft or less. If you are a pro or have a monster yard I would drop the money on the larger engine. Otherwise a classic, we'll built mower for your Bermuda grass types.

best lawn mower ever!! if.........

You are willing to put in the time and effort to have your grass looking like a golf course!! I will admit at first i was not fond of the way it was leaving my grass till I learned how to use it and what goes into maintaining grass at these levels now the compliments do not stop coming!!! I will add these do require yearly maintanance if you want to ensure a clean cut. chance are if you are looking to buy this mower you are not a noob to lawn care.

McLane Reel Mower is easily prone to misalignment.

<p>I purchased this mower recently and had to return it after a day, due to poor construction. &nbsp;I mowed over a small pebble which threw the whole reel out of alignment and started to contact some hold down bolts to the chassis just behind the reel&nbsp;component. Poor engineering. &nbsp;Re-alignment and re-sharpening of the cutting blade is not covered under warranty. &nbsp;I spent over $500 dollars and one small pebble rendered unit in-effective after just one day, unacceptable. &nbsp;Cuts nice but the lawn grass catcher capacity is very limited and must be emptied after every couple of passes. &nbsp;Self-Powered Propelled drive is good but hard to control. &nbsp;I purchased a Lawn Boy mower with keyed start, model #10647. &nbsp;Better construction and better price, $271 out the door. Not prone to mis-alignment. &nbsp;If I hit a foreign object now, all I do is continue to mow without regard of mis-alignment blades. &nbsp;If blade needs sharpen, I just remove one bolt to extract the cutting blade to resharpen or replace.&nbsp;</p>

The mower is good. Sears rebate and sears.com are difficult

<p>I purchased the mower in April 2010.&nbsp; Sears was very competitive on the price and the delivery was handled perfectly.&nbsp; The assembly was very easy.&nbsp; The mower worked great for 3 times, but a little triangular metal blade guard that was soldered on broke off, because it wasn't solidly put on.&nbsp; Since Sears told me it would take 3 weeks to get it&nbsp; back and I can't wait 3 weeks in the Summer for a $570 lawnmower to be fixed, I returned the product to the store.</p>
<p>When you buy items on Sears.com it is almost impossible to return them to the store when the product is only sold online.&nbsp; The Sears stores and Sears.com use two different transaction codes.&nbsp; So the result is that the store can't locate your transaction.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The other problem I had with Sears is that I was never able to obtain the rebate that came with the mower as additionally Sears rebate department also couldn't find the transaction.</p>
<p>Bottom line the lawnmower was good, started real easily and was a solid piece of equipment, but unfortunately mine had a little wellding issue which might be a 1 in a 100 issue.&nbsp; The rest of my transaction wore me out.</p>

Excellent mower, excellent value!

<p>After using a manual push reel mower for 12 years I wanted to upgrade to a self propelled unit. &nbsp;My lawn looked good before, but now my neighbors envy what they call &quot;the golf course&quot;. &nbsp;This mower is an excellent tool and I got mine during an end-of-season sale. &nbsp;Just keep in mind that a great looking bermuda grass lawn requires lots of maintenance: &nbsp;sanding, fertilizing, herbicides, fungicides, pesticides and very frequent mowing with a high grade mower. &nbsp;McLane makes an unsurpassed product for its price!</p>

Wish I would have bought this one!

<p>Looking at other reviews, I wish I would have purchased this reel mower in place of the one I actually bought.</p>

makes my lawn look like a golf course!

<p>The McLane 20 in. Cut Path Reel Mower cuts so good. It doesn't chew up and spit out the cuttings back in your lawn. You can easily adjust the mowing height and emptying out the cut grass is a cinch. Very easy to start too. You can also adjust the cutting blade to the reel as it wears out as you go. It's not for every kind of grass though. I use it on Bermuda and St. Augustine only...not recommended for Marathon or tall fescue type lawns. I haven't had to re-sharpen the reel and I've been using it for 3 years.</p>

not bad all things considered

If you have bermuda or st. Augustine grass and want a well manicured looking lawn, then a reel mower is really your only option. Most reel mowers available are either hand push mowers or insanely expensive and/or hard to find. This mower is the most common and easy to find power reel mower in the Southern California market area.

It is a decent mower. Fort he most part it cuts cleanly without issue and with the motor you don't have to worry about having to push or force it.

My biggest compliants is that the mower could have been been built a little better (compare to a TrueCut mower) same basic mower but much better built at about double the price. As heavy as it is, the slightest missed pebble or twig will cause the mower to complain.

The grass catcher doesn't hold much or fill well. And the blades are not as sharp as they could be.

Great mower at excellent price

I have recently built a home with zoysia grass. Also have checked around for a really good reel mower but didn't want to spend $1,000-$3,000 and hesitant to buy a used one. This one cost just little more than used one I saw and is excellent. Plenty of self-propelled power and easy start and operation. Yard looks manicured like a golf course. Could not be happier. Plus, Sears delivers to your front door...

McLane 20" Reel Mower

Excellent mower. Unlike a rotary mower, this mower gets way closer a cut for that manicured look. My lawn is St. Augustine, and the mower does not miss a beat. Plows right through. Great price also. Runs smooth and starts up on the first pull.Description says the engine is 4 hp. In actuality it is 5.25 hp. ARR, ARR, ARR.

Wonderful Mower for the price

We really like the power reel mower for our zoysia grass. It is easy to start and runs well. The mower should come with an additional drive chain so the 1-1/2&quot; setting can be achieved. Without it, the maximum height setting is 1-3/16&quot;. Beyond this, everything is great with the mower.
