and Easy to Assemble
With the Scotts 2000-20 Classic Push Reel Lawnmower, you not only save yourself the expense of purchasing gasoline, but you also decrease your carbon footprint by eliminating the pollution created by a gas mower. Powered by you, this mower has no complicated engine components to deal with and assembles with no tools required, so you can be ready to cut the grass within minutes of receiving your new lawnmower.
Wider Cutting Width Reduces Time and Effort
The Scotts 2000-20 Classic Push Reel Lawnmower features a wider-than-average 20-inch cutting width that reduces time and effort on your part. A wide 20-inch cutting path will reduce the number of passes required to cut your lawn, so you will get the job done more quickly and more efficiently.
Quick-Snap Height Adjusters Mean Easy Custom Control
Get complete control over the height of your lawn. The easy-to-use quick-snap height adjusters provide fingertip control over your blade height for precision cuts. Adjustable from one to three inches, they easily fit into nine different height slots and stay securely locked in place thanks to quick-snap technology.
Precision Blade Technology and Ball Bearing Reel
The five-spider, five-blade reel features five heat-treated steel blades for accurate cuts every time. Designed with smooth ball bearings, the blades spin efficiently as you push the mower. Each blade slices through grass with extreme precision, leaving behind fine mulch, which is essential for a healthy lawn. The five-blade cutting action is designed to provide precision performance over the life of the mower, and its tough, heavy-duty steel design is built to last.
Dual Wheel Tracking for Maneuverability
The Scotts Classic Push Reel Lawnmower features two 10-inch composite wheels with radial tires plus two six-inch tracking wheels for added maneuverability. This innovative dual wheel tracking technology eliminates drag and makes it easier to push the Scotts 2000-20 mower over even the toughest terrain. The loop-style handle with foam grip provides added comfort during operation and also enhances the mower's maneuverability.
The Scotts 2000-20 20-Inch Classic Push Reel Lawnmower weighs approximately 34 pounds (shipping weight) and is backed by a two-year warranty.

Top Customer Reviews
1. Safer: no flying rocks or other projectiles, your kids won't sneak up on you and get extremities caught in the blade the way they do with gas mowers. As an ED physician, this is an especially important observation that I don't think had been pointed out before.
2. Quieter: my neighbors are thankful, as are my ears
3. No smoke, no gas fumes
4. Easier handling than gas mower, lighter, can get in crevices more easily and safely
5. Better for environment, save on gas, oil.
6. Easier to start-up; I'm more likely to cut the grass with this mower
7. Doesn't take any longer to mow then lawn vs. a gas mower (and if you gas mower is finicky, will probalby be faster).
1. Requires a bit more elbow grease with thick grass, especially on hills. Not a lot more, but a bit more (good exercise though).
2. Tall grass/weeds will not be easily cut with this; anything taller than 6-8 inches probably won't spring back up in time for the blades to cut them
3. 20" cutting swath a bit more narrow than your average gas mower, so you may need a few more passes. On flat land, it's no problem whatsoever.
I'm happy with this mower, how well it holds up remains to be seen. Construction quality is decent, the price and free shipping can't be beat. Haven't tried the $200+ models of reel mowers, so I can't comment.
If you have a smaller (< 0.5 acre), relatively flat yard, what are you waiting for?! If you like to think of mowing the lawn as exercise and have a bit larger yard, this may also be for you. Lastly, if you have kids and safety is a concern, (yes, you Volvo all-wheel-drive owners out there), a reel mower is also the way to go.
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!
[Edit - added later]
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.
Reel mowers work best when they only remove a small portion of the grass blade at a time. If you go on vacation, get hit with a lot of rain, or have some other reason why you can't mow and your lawn gets too long, this mower will do a poor job of cutting it. It also has difficulty with some (particularly tall) weeds.
In general, a power rotary mower with sharp blades will more easily give you that near-perfect "carpet" look to your lawn. A power rotary mower also cuts closer to the edges of the mowing area (this mower can only get 2-3 inches from the outside edge of the wheels).
That said, using this mower is good exercise and it gets the job done in many cases. Here are the attributes which represent a good candidate for this mower:
1. Owns a small (less than 1/4 acre) lawn.
2. Maintains lawn in good condition (healthy, few weeds, etc.)
3. Is committed to regular (~2x per week) mowing.
4. Has a reason to not use a rotary mower:
- Exhaust emissions
- Use of fossil fuels
5. Is not allergic to exercise ;)
If you meet these requirements you'll probably be happy with it. In my case, my lawn is too large and I'm too picky about how it looks after I mow it :(
