Compared to walk behind gas mowers (which can weigh from 80 to 100 pounds), that's feather light!Looking for the right push mower? Take a look at our Reel Mower Reviews: Lars's Quick Picks.

1. Manual reel mowers don't cut tall weeds well
(but they do great on grass). Because of the design, the reel will roll over tall weeds and dandelions without cutting much. So they aren't a good choice to mow a vacant lot, but they'll do superbly with a grass lawn.
2. If you don't mow weekly, it's going to be much harder to push
. You know how a gas mower will bog down when you try to mow grass that hasn't been cut in weeks? Well, it's like that with a reel mower, except you're the motor.
