Product Description

Product Description

Premium push reel lawn mower, non contact cutting technology prolongs blade life without sharpening for 8 years. Easy to use, easy to assemble. Optional grass catcher.

From the Manufacturer

The LMM series mowers are Sunlawn’s lightest, quietest, easiest to maneuver mowers. The LMM mowers offer the best mowing performance with the least effort; no other manual mower is so well matched to the human power source. This series features the original Sunlawn five blade flame hardened non-contact cutting system that gives long years of full performance without ever requiring sharpening. The Sunlawn LMM series mowers outperform our earlier Luxus models: the larger wheels provide more mechanical advantage (mowing power) and the greater height range (effectively .5 to 2.5-inches) matches more American lawns. We know of no better all around manual mower available.

The LMM40 is my second reel mower. I'm very happy with the first use today in the long spring grass. I have about 5000 square feet of turf. My previous mower was the Scott's 20 inch. It worked ok, but it was very difficult to adjust the blades to get a good cut. I found it necessary to make a second pass or tighten the blade so much it was hard to push to get a good cut. The Sunlawn right out of the box cut all the grass on the first pass. The bottom blade is much more robust so it doesn't flex. I haven't had to adjust it yet, but the spring loaded adjustment bolts look much more precise than other models. I am not at all concerned about the durability of the plastic sides. The mower is very solid and well built. I think the few extra dollars is worth it for the better machine.

I guess I'm a bit of a throwback to the good ole days but I was expecting something a bit more substantial. These days you reduce weight by making it out of plastic. I was somewhat disappointed in the amount of plastic on the machine...even the wheels seems to be PVC. To me it cheapens the overall product. This certainly isn't my grandfather's reel mower of memory.
That said, it is light, setup was very easy, and the thing works great. I have a townhome and a small back yard so I'm done in 10 minutes but I could easily see a larger yard being mowed this way. I love the distinct lack of noise! I bought this after my rechargeable B&D mower's battery went out. This cost a little more than the battery and it should last much, much, longer!

I purchased the LMM40 in an attempt be more environmentally concious. My lawn is about 5000 sq. ft. and I can get through it in about 90 minutes. At first, I was a little dissapointed in having to make multiple passes over the same patch but that seems to have gotten better. Perhaps my lawn is getting used to this type of mower, I am getting used to overlapping, or the blades are self sharpening. Either way, it seems to be getting better. One of the coolest impacts of this mower is the ability to quickly grab it and mow a section of the yard if I need to. With my old craftsman self propelled mower, it was more of a project to get it out, fill with gas, pull the rip cord 20 times to get it started. Compare it to grabbing a broom versus pulling out the leaf blower.

Pros
- lightweight
- less of a project to mow the lawn
- no fear of burning the lawn
- I can mow at any time without worrying about disturbing neighbors
- grass looks great
- better for the environment

Cons
- have to go over tall sections multiple times
- better to use the grass catcher with dense grass
- takes a little bit longer to mow
- spend more time picking up twigs and sticks in the grass so the blades don't get caught and stop the mower.
- No lines in the yard (my wife's comment) - she likes seeing the mow lines. This doesn't bother me as much because they fade in a couple of days anyway.
- no vacuum effect
- neighbors look at me funny when using a reel mower. I feel a bit like an early adopter. Oh well... some day they'll get the idea.

Summary:
All in all, I am glad I got this mower. I haven't been tempted to get out my old rotary mower. The grass really seems to be responding to this type of cut.

I bought this for $160 and free shipping for a few small patches of relatively flat grass. It was easy to assemble, about 15 mins from opening the box to finish, and I have used it twice so far. The first run was rather difficult, as the grass had gotten pretty high, and so I started on a disadvantage, but the second time was pretty easy. Sometimes the grass needs a second run over it so I find working in one direction, then overlapping by about half going the other direction seems to work the best. It is more difficult to mow along borders and I find that it leaves a few inches (room for the wheel and then the start of the blade) unmowed, but that's a small tradeoff considering I don't have to drive my car to get a gallon of gas to mow a lawn I would have to edge and weedwhack the corners anyways. It does work your arms a bit, and it was a bit tougher this morning as the grass was a little wet. Overall it takes a little more time to mow, but considering you don't have to fill up the gas and check the oil and open the garage and roll out the lawnmower and find your earplugs and shower right afterwards to get rid of the gas smell- it pretty much evens out the time difference. A great product.

Verified Purchase
I've updated this review after another year. I still like it but think there is more to share. I will leave my rating a 4 because my cautions would apply to all push mowers.

This is almost perfect. As other say its very easy to assemble, easy to push, very light weight. Make sure to tighen the height setting I found it shifted to the lowest until I got it really tight. UPDATE - I am continuing to have problems keeping this set at 2" I've had my very strong neighbor tighten it for me and after a mowing my lawn it is back to 1-1.5 inches. I think I will take it to someone to see if we can drill a whole and put in a plug to keep it from shifting. This is a problem when it is dry and letting your lawn grow longer is a good idea. Setting the mower to a 2" height - the highest option it goes over most little hills and bump as well as twigs. When I had it shorter more things got caught. Although that's not a hard fix if you like a lower cut. It takes me no longer and with no more effort than my old key start power mower.

What I had not considered is my whole yard is bordered by a flower garden with the traditional low rolled plastic edging. With my power mower I just rolled over the edging and got all of the grass. This doesn't work with this mower, it gets stuck. If I try to go along the side of the edging it is about 3 inches from the outside of the wheel to the blade so it leaves about 3 inches of grass. So I'm trying to figure out a way to avoid going around on my hands and knees with a grass clipper or having to buy a weed wacker. I tried tilting the mower back and I got some more grass so maybe I can master a technique that will work. UPDATE - I was unable to figure out a way to use the mower close to the edging.
