Great States Push Reel Mower
We bought the Great States Push Reel Mower last month and have been happy with this purchase ever since. In a time when most people are trying to be more friendly toward the environment, a push reel mower can be a small part of the solution.
Not having to fill the little gas can and deal with the horrible smell of fuel is a definite plus to this person powered mower. Storage is easy due to it being much smaller than any powered mower I have ever seen. Getting some extra exercise is also an advantage, although I don't find it to be that difficult to push. The best benefit for me is knowing that keeping my lawn looking good isn't harming the planet.
I would recommend this mower for any household with occupants capable of using it. If a person has trouble walking or their yard is huge, it may be difficult to use a push reel mower. The only other issue that I have found with this type of mower is that it does not cut some of the weeds well. Even after going after an area several times, some weeds still stand only a little trimmed.
I have seen sharpening kits for the Great States push reel mower, which may fix this issue. I cannot say for sure because we have not bought the kit. A few weeds here and there do not bother us.
On the whole, I find the Great States Push Reel Mower to be a great purchase. Even saving a small amount on gas makes a big difference.
