Reel mowers will lead to a healthier lawn, life, and environment. Here are some things about them:
Without a loud mower breaking your ear drums you can actually enjoy it.
Lastly, it's better for our environment. They're less to manufacture, there's less to break, and there's less to consume. Albeit, mowers don't typically consume that much gas - it's a start.
I was renting in a real nice neighborhood, and all the neighbors on my block were retired. I worked nights, so I slept mornings to early afternoon. Liked to mow in the early evening, to miss the harshest sun. A reel mower is nearly whisper quiet, I could mow while the neighbors were eating dinner, or in some cases settling in for bed, and not feel bad about noise.
Push mowers may not need much gas, but even a little gas and yearly oil and blade sharpening adds up. A can of WD-40 and a wrench was all I ever put into the reel deal.
Just received the reel mower and this unit throws the grass to the back, toward your feet/shoes/pants which I don't like at all. The other two models, Plus and Max, throws the grass foward after being cut.
I'm sending this back and getting the StaySharp 18" Max. The videos on that product page was deceiving making it look like it would spit the grass foward but the video was actually showing either the Plus or Max model.
It worked well but had trouble cutting thick and tall grass like others have mentioned.
If anyone is in the Newburgh, NY area (zip12550), I have the 18" Staysharp Max model that I'm selling, with the basket catcher. Will give a better deal for it to slick dealers, as I've got it on Craigslist at the moment.
It's been taken care of and maintained. But I overestimated my free time and cannot keep the 1+ acre properly mowed with this. It is very pleasant to use though if you have a level lawn. Hearing the reel spinning, grass clippings flying and the birds singing all at the same time was pretty awesome.
