People are loving this push lawn mower, as evidenced by the many lengthy and highly detailed reviews online. People don’t write long reviews for just any product. To take the time to do so, they have to love it. People love this mower. Here is just one example of the kinds of reviews it is getting, from real customers who purchased it.
“My husband and I just bought a house with an average lawn in Maine – not sure what type of grass, but some of the clover, dandelions, and mint mixed in. It’s a 1/4 acre lot with a house that’s less than 2000 sq. ft., so, while not huge, definitely not considered a tiny yard.
We didn’t want to deal with gas, oil, the smell, noise, charging, or storage of a gas or electric so we bought this one after reading a lot of mixed reviews for a lot of different reel mowers. This ended up being one of the cheapest out there, so I was nervous it wouldn’t be great. I am so glad we bought this!
My husband and I have used this one time each so far and we both were pleasantly surprised with how well it worked. Here is our experience with the mower:
First, it was easy to assemble. I put it together in less than 1/2 an hour.
Each time we used it, the lawn was LONG from being on vacation for 1-2 weeks prior to mowing. The mower did a great job, though some of the grass that was long enough to be tipped over snuck under the blades. We just went back over these places in different directions to try to get it best we can. I definitely think this can be avoided by mowing before it gets this long.
Even though we have several large trees in the yard, and we had just had a thunderstorm the day before I mowed, I really had no problem with sticks getting stuck (and I did not rake or pick up sticks ahead of time). Only one stick got stuck and one piece of mulch got stuck. It zoomed over 1+ foot long sticks bigger round than my fingers, no problem.
It took my husband and I each just over an hour to mow the whole yard. Again, this is after going over several patches more than once and I think if we mowed more often than every 2 weeks it would take less time and we would not need to redo patches.
Some grass is just going to cut better in certain directions. For example, just after one time, I learned the patch of grass along our driveway needs to be cut north-south, not east-west.
You will have to do some trimming. It leaves a few inches of uncut grass next to buildings and other objects.
It’s not silent. It makes a scratching/slicing sound but it is not unpleasant and certainly nothing like power mowers. You could easily listen to music/radio with earbuds using this.
I did not even bother to use the grass catcher but my husband did. He said it filled so fast he just took it off rather than dump it every pass down the lawn. Again, probably more of an issue with longer grass.
It’s a good workout without being so much that you never want to do it again! It was actually easier to push than I was expecting. This is one of the reasons we got a reel mower (for the free workout), but if you don’t like to sweat or workout, get yourself a rider!
So, that’s our experience. I definitely recommend this mower after two uses. If anything changes, I will update my review but at this point, unless our lawn gets larger, I would never go back to a power mower!“
