Since reel mowers only cut grass when they are moving, lay out your mowing pattern to maximize the amount of long, straight runs and to minimize starts and stops. Overlapping wheel tracks will ensure a complete and uniform cut. If any mowing runs end against an obstruction (garden, foundation, fence, etc) begin by making one or two mowing passes along the obstructions to provide a turnaround zone.
Large-diameter InertiaDrive Reel with thick blades delivers more cutting energy to power through small twigs, weeds or dense grass that would jam other reel mowers. Inset wheel design allows the blades to extend across the full width of the mower for a wider cut that eliminates uncut strips under the wheels and lets you to edge closer to foundations, fences and borders than other reel mowers.
Frequently Asked Questions
How well would this mower work with slightly un even ground?
Not bad at all. My front yard was apparently created some 40 years ago by some guy with a dump truck dumping a load of dirt, some other guy indifferently raking the dirt around, years of moles, city work crews and time digging, slumping, and in general just creating a semi-natural mess. Heck, it even included, at one time, for its careful leveling neighbors who invited their drunk friends over to drive on it (a time thankfully passed--Good Neighbors, now). So, my front yard is NOT "even ground". I like how the mower works on it. YMMV, but then I don't know how you want your lawn to look after mowing. Mine will never look like a putting green, but I neither expect or want it to.
Pamphlet says the only tool needed is an 11 mm socket wrench, reviews state need 13 mm as well. Can someone clarify if I need both?
I needed an 11mm socket wrench. I also had to use an adjustable wrench (set to 13mm) to hold the head of the bolts while I screwed on the 11mm nuts. You can use any kind of wrench that can handle something 13mm. Without the adjustable wrench I wouldn't have been able to screw on the nuts.
Does the front discharge clog up the blades? Other Fiskars mowers clog up after a short run by piling up clippings in the front of the mower.
No, that doesn't happen with ours. If I set the mower too low, then it doesn't cut evenly. But that can be remedied by setting the blade higher. We are quite pleased with the mower and have had it for almost a year.
