I read the reviews from people talking about their small lawns and short grass. I have neither. My lawn is about 1/2 acre and the grass is over a foot tall right now, because it's the first mowing of the season. It's not nice grass, either. It's a thick assortment of vegetation of widely varying cooperativeness.
This mower assembled easily and quickly. The height adjustment levers are easy to reach and move freely when asked to. It takes quite a bit of work to cut my Lawn of Evil, but that was the point and this mower does indeed cut that lawn! Highly recommended!

I think that some of the frustration people are having is that they push the mower across the thick grass, look behind them, and don't see a perfectly manicured swath of lawn. This kind of mower doesn't really work like a motorized mower, where you guide it along and the blades makes many passes over the grass as you walk. It works more like a vacuum cleaner. You make short, back-and-forth strokes until you've cut (or crushed) all the stems. Then you move to the next section. Once the grass is short and you're in maintenance mode, then just pushing the mower up and down the lawn should do fine.
That being said, first time around the yard beat me up something bad. I was super out of shape, and even though this is a 30-35 lb mower, on such a small lot, it took me over an hour. I should be clear on that point: that was on me, not the mower. It performed perfectly, right out of the box.
Knowing that a mower of this style require more frequent mowing when the grass is at shorter lengths, I spent the whole summer keeping the lawn looking pristine by mowing twice a week, mowing every 10 days at the very most. The blades cut evenly and smooth, and did not leave white tips on the grass after a session, indicating a very sharp, quick cut. You have a 20" advertised cutting width, but you're better off trying to cut around 15" wide, and overlapping a bit to make sure you don't leave strips. Over the summer, just from the effort of pushing this mower, I probably lost about 5-7 pounds, and was able to cut my yard work down from over an hour, to just under 45 minutes! The yard always looked better than the neighbor's too, but that might be biased :)
Now, fast forward to this year. I've cut my grass twice thus far.
And I'm shopping for gas-powered mowers at my local hardware store.
Don't get me wrong, I've loved this mower, and I'll definitely keep it around and in working order. But a mower like this require constant vigilance on your part. If you're not pushing this thing around your yard a couple times a week, you're going to have a bad time. Simply put, life gets in the way. Busy with work, busy with family, busy with all the joys of home ownership. Next thing you know, the grass is 6", and you're about to have a bad time. Even with the deck cranked all the way up, you're going to have an incredibly difficult mowing session in front of you. I just recently mowed for the first time this year, after neglecting the yard at least a week longer than I should have. Took over 3 hours, with two passes over the entire yard at two different deck heights. And now, the wild and wonderful Virginia springtime has bestowed upon us 15 straight days of rain.
On that note, don't even THINK of pushing this thing around in the rain. Forget it. I wouldn't even try mowing the morning dew. Seriously.
But you know what? I still love this mower. Even if I go the petrol powered route, I'll keep this thing for lite duty in between. It's a quality instrument, and has yet to need sharpening or oiling in the two years I've had it. Never bothered with the sharpening kit sold her, most reviewers stated the blades have never needed sharpening, and the manufacturer touts a 10-year lifespan on the blade's edge. The bagger attachment American Lawn Mower 1ST-SP Reel Mower Grass Catcher has it's uses, but it's quite flimsy. good for getting a few passes-worth of clippings to mulch your raised beds. Boosted my tomatoes with that technique last year. But I digress.
Cliffs: It's a damn good mower, IF you can keep up with your yard. 0.50+ acre lots need not apply.
To oil, I poured some expensive, high hydroxytyrosol extra virgin olive oil on a paper towel and wiped it onto the blades. (I had just run out of White Lightening bike lubricant but the olive oil was handy. No big deal at all. If you are considering a push reel mower because you don't like petroleum products, rest assured that you can use just about any vegetable oil or skin-friendly silicone instead.)
I chose this lawn mower because it was the one that has the highest setting (3 inches), and because it has the widest cutting path.
I've never mowed a lawn before, so I really had no idea what I was doing. But I know plants, so I know that if you cut too low it damages the grasses, and that longer grass looks a lot prettier and darker green than grass that is razed short.
My grass was already about 5 or 6 inches in some places. The soil was saturated and the grass itself was still wet from lots of rain. But once the machine and I got to know each other, I was able to mow the lawns faster than the rider mowers in the neighborhood. Simply walking behind it at a normal pace turns out to be exactly the right speed to efficiently cut the first time. I did have to fluff up some patches with my hands and go over them again, but that's because they were long, fine, and weighed down with rain.
When I was trying to accept that mowing would be a weekly task, I thought that the upside would be an upper-body workout. I was a little disappointed that not much effort was required. I was in street clothing and shoes and didn't even have my hair tied back, because I had only intended to test a small patch to see how difficult it would be. Since hardly any effort was required I just went on and did the job as-I-was.
Adjusting the height of the blades is also no big deal. I want to kill a few patches of lawn and replace it with flowers. So I lowered the blades all the way (takes 5 seconds right in the field, no tools) to cut that grass much shorter). I couldn't say whether that's harder or easier to do with this machine than others. I hadn't even expected to need such a feature so I didn't shop for it. But I'm really glad to have it.
I appreciate the guard across the front. It enables me to shove the mower right up under some low-hanging shrubs, cutting the grass without cutting the shrubs.
The assembly instructions were a little mysterious, and the pictures, including the one in this ad, show the handle attached BACKWARD. The top of the handle should angle down, not up, or the leverage will be lost. I put my handle on as shown and attempted to mow that way for 10 minutes until I realized that su'pm wa'n rite. Ha ha, very funny, Scotts. Hope the neighbors didn't see that. Fortunately all the bolts have wingnuts so it was easily corrected in the field.
