Operation and Features
Great States 815-18 features smooth spinning blades allowing you to do fewer passes even on relatively rough patches.
The easy roll wheels make it easy to maneuver. You don’t have to deal with jammed up grass when you turn it around.
It also features easy height adjustment. You can choose from ½ – 2 ¾ with no hassle. This way, you can achieve the cut that you want more precisely.
Assembly is tool free.
Performance and Design
The 18 inch cutting width is actually a bit wider than most basic push reel mowers. This means you can finish the job faster.
Great States 815-18 features the Great States classic 4 spider, 5 blade ball bearing reel that adds more maneuverability.
The 10 inch wheels come with ball bearing and radial rubber tires that roll easily with increased traction.
The bed knife blade is made from tempered alloy steel which gives you a reliable cut.
The blades are also heat treated so they stay sharp longer. It means you don’t have to worry about maintenance. You may have to grease it after some time and sharpen the blades after a year or so.
The handle is designed in a loop style making it easy to bend so you can control it better depending on your height. It is also with cushioned grips for added comfort.
It comes in a powder-coat finish which prevents rust so this is great for long term use.
It also comes with an unbreakable steel side plate.
