Deluxe Light Push Reel Mower Package

Regular Price: $159.99

This reel mower package includes one Deluxe Light Push Reel Mower, a grass catcher and a blade sharpening kit!

The sharpening kit contains an application brush, grinding compound, and back-lapping crank. The grinding compound is non-toxic, water based and has a value of 120 grit.

The mower body is fully assembled, and you only have to assemble and attach the handle. The handle comes in six pieces and only takes about 15 minutes to put together with an adjustable wrench.

The grass catcher is made of polyester rot resistant fabric with a durable plastic bottom and heavy duty wire frame. Assembly only requires pliers and a screwdriver.

The Deluxe Light Reel Mower by American Lawnmower is a lighter weight alternative to our Scotts Classic. This lawnmower has several features that set it apart from other reel mowers. It has an 18 inch cutting width, which is comparable to most electric and gas mowers. It weighs just 27 pounds. Compared to walk behind gas mowers (which can weigh from 80 to 100 pounds), that's feather light!

It can be set for a variety of cutting heights from half an inch to 2.5 inches tall, making it ideal for people who like to keep their lawn very tall. (Most people keep their lawn between 1 and 2 inches.)

  • Things to keep in mind with any manual mower:

    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.
