With everything from robot mowers to incredible push mowers, you would probably be surprised to find out you can still purchase reel lawn mowers. Who the heck would use a reel push lawn mower in this day and age when convenience, speed and technology are the name of the game?
Believe it or not, there are many people who uses them, including us. There are several advantages to using push reel lawn mowers – they’re cost effective, require no fuel, leave a carbon footprint of zero, and are the perfect choice for those with smaller lawns who don’t want to use a high-powered and noisy mower. Also there’s very little that can go wrong with a reel mower; and if it does, it’s quick, easy and inexpensive to repair.
They’re easy to assemble, clean and store and while some people think they should be relegated to a display cabinet in a history museum we love their old world charm and how well they actually work.
