This is a great mower for small lawns. No trouble putting it together and it is working very well. I would recommend this mower to anyone looking for a low-maintenance alternative to completing their yard work. An added bonus is the work-out I get as I take care of my lawn.
I purchased the mower, believing this was a step up from the lowest cost models. The handle is two piece and very flimsy. It takes a bit of adjusting to make sure the blades (which are very dull) to cut. Anything over about 6 inches tall lays down with the front guard, and becomes difficult to cut. Fortunately I have a very small area to mow so it works, but 4 or 5 times longer than a conventional mower.
Very easy to use, clean & store.
The only problem is the catcher not the best the way that you have to hook it up.
This purchase was a big mistake, its very hard to push. I might have to yard sale it to get back at least half what I paid.
Used primarily on small area of yard with fine Bermuda grass. Well constructed.
I been using this mower on a quarter acre lawn that has a small hill. Once I got used to how the mower functions, cutting the lawn took the same amount of time as with a power mower. I clean and lubricate the blades and sharpening edge after each use (sometimes every other use if I'm feeling particularly lazy)and the mower has functioned well all season. I've used it for one season of cutting so far and expect to get many more seasons out of this machine.
Had been lreading about reel mowers for over a year. When I saw the price on this one I couldn't resist. I use it to mow a medium-size yard and it actually takes me less time than it did with a power mower. The only negatives are it doesn't fo so well on hills and the occasional tall weed but I knew this before buying
