My old, gas powered, push mower was on its last legs, and I really wanted to try out a reel mower instead of another gas mower. So this year, I bought this 16" Great States Reel Mower to see how I liked it. It's been great so far!
It's so much quieter and cleaner to use than the old gas mower, and it's just as easy to use. It' doesn't throw grass & rocks everywhere, so you could safely have kids or pets out with you while you were cutting. You also don't have to listen to an obnoxious engine or breathe in gross fumes. It's quiet enough that the neighbors across the street will barely hear you using it.
