If you happen to see Fiskars Axes on sale, let us know.
Winter will be here sooner than we think and that wood won't chop itself.

I dont know if there's one included in this model but I do see a Fiskars grass basket at Lowes that you can buy separately. The grass baskets from all the other reel mowers don't seem to catch grass that well from all the reviews I've read. This is the top reel mower and most expensive if it's not on sale.

This thing is awesome if you can mow every other day of the week and don't have a slope. I have 2 and I can lift them up and hang on a hook.

When I bought one, it said only 4 left.

It's separate for around $30. I have one for mine but don't use it anymore. The mower shoots the grass forward of the mower so it is cut up well and serves to give nutrients to thr yard.

Curious about these mowers. I can get a low-end mulching mower with a Briggs & Stratton motor for about the same price. Other than environmental concerns and gas consumption (which is next to zero, 2 gallons lasts me all year+) what would the benefit of this type of mower be?

Been wanting this Reel mower but not available at any Target stores by me - checked http://www.brickpicker.com/target.../index.cfm within 100 miles. Too bad. Frown

I've got one of these, back when Home Depot was clearancing them out. Easy to use and push and quiet as a mouse, no one even knows you're mowing.

I've had one for about 4 years. It's much less maintenance (e.g. no having to add gas, no having to change oil, change filters, change sparkplugs, etc.) and I say this even given mine is much more rusted than I'd like (I'm renting, no basement or garage, and storage shed on lacks a door so it gets wet in big rains). Even given the bad condition it's been stored in it still mows quite well (not as good as prior to the blades getting a bit rusty but that's on me). It's nearly silent, so you can listen to music, mow at odd hours without neighbors caring, etc. Plus ...... I hate to say it but it's just much "funner" than mowing with a regular mower. I still don't love mowing but at least it's much more tolerable with this.

Remember Target has free shipping with this mower. I bought one earlier and it will arrive sometimes next week.

Your lawn will thank you as well. This mower cuts with like a scissor like action, making nice clean cuts vs the ripping and shredding action of a gas mower which can damage the grass. That's why baseball stadiums and golf courses utilize reel mowers, albeit on a large scale with multiple towed mowers.

I've had once since we bought our first house last year. I enjoy having less noise (I can talk on the phone even!), and not smelling like exhaust. Though I will caution you that if you have a lot of weeds and crabgrass, you'll have to make two passes to adequately cut. The thick stalks of that stuff doesn't cut as nicely as thin blades of grass. I'm struggling with that at the moment as the previous owners did no lawn care.

Thanks for the reply

I guess mowing at odd hours and the quietness in general would be a plus... I'm never up early enough for that though... lol..

as for low maintenance, my last mower was a $99 Bolens that never saw shelter. I bought it when I lived in a duplex, left it outside. Took it with me when I bought a house without a garage (big mistake) and left it outside there as well. I think I had it a total of 6 or 7 years without changing the oil or spark plug, although I did sharpen the blade once... it still worked when I left it with my ex...

My current mower is the next iteration of that same mower (currently $150 at lowes, though it is nicer than my old one) I sharpen the blade a couple of times a year because I have many trees, and many sticks, and little desire to pick them up first... I see the maintenance as a wash, to be honest...

You can get $50 CASH for it when you sell it on Craigslist! Ka-ching! Big Grin

I applaud people who can make these mowers work, but they are not for everyone. You really need to stay on top of your mowing for them to function properly.
