This reel mower is ideal for smaller yards.

The handle has a loop design with comfort grip so it won’t slip your hands even when you sweat a little.
It is sturdy yet rolls smoothly allowing you to cut more easily. It has bigger wheels in front and smaller supporting wheels at the back for better stability and maneuverability at the same time.
The 10” front wheel is cleared to reduce slippage so it won’t be impossible to mow on slightly wet grass.
The 5 blade reel with ball bearings allow for smooth cutting. This means you can easily push it around and you don’t have to do multiple passes on the same area to get the cut that you want.
The reels are also self-sharpening so you don’t have to worry about maintenance cost and troubles.
It features easy height adjustment and you can put it from 1 to 3 inch.
The mowing width is 20 inch, wider than average push reel mowers which lets you get the job done faster.
