Why the Scotts 200-20 Reel Lawn Mower is for you?
The 20 inch cutting width is ideal if you want to get it over with quickly, because the greater width (as compared to average push reel mowers) makes for fewer passes. The blades are very durable and make for very good mulching. The combination of the composite and tracking wheels make it very easy to move and turn, reducing drag and giving good traction.
This lawnmower is designed with an eye towards easy assembly, with no engine parts to manage or maintain and the foam grip on the loop handle making for a good grip. It has received positive response as the blades stay sharper for longer, and the height level can be easily changed with a lever. It can manage weeds and uneven surfaces, and is lightweight, hence easier to handle.
Plus, you get to save on fuel consumption, as compared to average gas lawnmowers. And obviously no motor means there is no noise.
Thick grass will require more manual effort from the mower, so be ready for some exercise. Furthermore, it may not cut tall weeds, and grass if you just let it grow. Some people complain that they have to mow their lawn more often than before otherwise it gets really hard to manage. It also does not cut very close to the edges, which may compromise on the look.
Also it is not very ideal if you have bumps or uneven surfaces in your lawn. The only downside to assembling is that the foam pad is a little hard to get onto the loop handle, so you may have to use some dishwasher liquid as a lubricant. The bolts may also come loose. It does not cut grass that lies down, and is more of a trim than a cut, hence regular cutting is essential.
This lawnmower is more suitable to certain types of people, particularly the environment conscious ones, and is particularly ideal if you are on budget and need to save on fuel. Furthermore, most push reel mower reviews suggest that it is not ideal if you don’t mow your lawn regularly, in case of rain or if you go on vacations. Also, it is more suited for smaller and cleaner lawns, not hilly or bumpy ones.
You can also use it on bigger lawns, as long as you don’t mind the exercise. It is also safer if you have kids, as there are no flying rocks or shrapnel with this mower. Check out our other similar style mower review here.
