Wow! Very different from one I owned in the past. This is Scott's 20 inch reel mower - very easy to push and does a fine job clipping. Tom cut our back yard yesterday, all except around the pool, so when I got the new mower home I finished up around the pool and on a whim went over the back yard again, shaving off just a wee bit more than Tom's cutting had. Worked like a charm! There is something very peaceful about cutting grass without the roar of an engine or the smell of gas. Our next door neighbor when I was growing up, always had one for their yard. I can still remember how beautiful their yard was - the rose bushes along the fence, hydrangeas along the house, and the yard looking like it had a flat top hair cut. If I close my eyes I can still see Mr. Dick (may he rest in peace!) pushing that reel mower and tending his beautiful yard.
