No Good

Very disappointing.

Only cuts short grass.

Mangles anything longer gets stuck on thick clumps of grass blades aren't very sharp.

Waste of money.

That's is why it's 64 bucks.

Lacking information

The directions for assembly of the Ozito Reel Mower should include the following;

1. Start with a lawn like a bowling green.

2. Clear intended mowing area of anything larger than a 5 cent piece.

3. If there has been an overnight dew, go and do something else. ( will not cut damp grass)

4. Adjust blade height a minimum of 6 times ( long grass, short grass, rye grass, etc.)

I keep pushung forward.

Hopefully I won't wear out before I manage to great the afore mention bowling green.
Energy efficient, and I'm getting plenty of exercise.
Will not cut close enough, despite constantly adjusting the cutting height.

Two month cycles

My second one in 4 months has just died. The blades are not the issue, well unless you count them not spinning as a blade issue. The gears don't engage and even as i push over short dry grass, there is no spin. I love the idea of a gas free device, and i can live with the stopping on brikabrak, but not spinning

The gears dont last

Cheap but worthless

I bought the second one pf these things after the first one died in less than one season of mowing my front verge of 30m2. The second has clagged out after five mows. It was only about $70 at Bunnings, but now i have the hassle of getting another mower. I'll spend more up front and get something that works. These are cheap but worthless.

I just bought this and you can't even tell where I've mown. Now I too have the hassle of getting another mower. Don't buy it!

Economic, light and effective

I have owned two of these push mowers (one here in Oz and the other in the UK). The quality of the cut is very good for the price, just make sure the blade height is set at the right level for your grass and is level. The mower is also very light and takes up a small amount of space compared to a petrol mower. The other obvious benefit is it doesn't use fuel.

Works well

Sick of motors running out of petrol/electricity or shorting out, I brought this to quickly do a very overgrown front lawn (4 x 3m). Bit hard to get used to but it cuts everything except for thick and very long types. Unfortunatly there is no grip on the handle, which moves continuously making use alot harder than it should (wear gloves!! I used cycling gloves). Miss matched dill-holes made assembly difficult, lost bolts while trimming.

Better for small yards and short ankle high grass, flat dry ground; sticks in moist ground.
Light weight (carried home/no car), easy to use, cuts short grass well, cheap
Non fixed handle moves constantly, cant cut tall or thick plants, glogs easy, sticks in small dents/moist soil

Basic but cheap

I've used both this one and the more expensive flymo brand. They are both pretty poor compared to a powered mower but this one is much cheaper. Wont cut really long weeds but neither will the other one. Got jammed with sticks a couple of times but that is easy enough to fix. It was pretty easy to put together although it does seem a bit flimsy. It comes with a two year warranty though so I wont hesitate to take it back if there are any problems before then.
It cuts grass. Only costs $65. 2 year warranty
Doesn't cut weeds or really long grass. Flimsy construction

Terrible

Disappointing. Look elsewhere for better. How a manual push mower could be designed so poorly I have no idea, but they've done it. Plastic pinion gear that meshes with inside of wheel on both sides is already worn out after about five uses on our lawn of 25 m^2. Now on a search for these parts; without them the mower is useless. Missing some parts when purchased new from Bunnings.
Simple, straightfoward to use, good cutting action
Cheap parts

Terrible

Cheap yes but there is a reason for that. Had a mechanic try to put it together and parts did not all fit. Got an exchange and this one fit together but cut poorly. not worth the hassel.
appearance looked good
appearances are deceptive

Good

Not too bad for the price. I only have a small lawn area so it more than adequate. I also sugest the grass catcher for it also unless you don't mind raking.
Cheap - $59, Bunnings.

Easy to assemble.

Cuts reasonably well for its price.

OK

For such a cheap price, I guess it is not a surprise at all that it doesn't last long. Not sure if it is worth sending it for sharpening but it would be a waste to just throw it
Cheap, light, not bulky, simple to use
The blade wears out fairly quickly and unable to mow at all after 6 months
