Defeated by a dandelion

The razor cut mower is okay on a flat lawn with fairly low grass. It is unbelievably bad with weeds, or taller grass. In fact it is the worst mechanical device I have ever used. It was literally defeated by a dandelion. Show details

Update after about two years

Still works and still satisfied with it. Had to adjust blade gap to improve cut. Has paid for itself long ago.

Pretty poor design

Been using this mower for about three weeks. It cut fines when it cuts, but the blades jam constantly. It's just grass getting caught but the jarring stop every few metres is annoying. The only way to clear the blade is to stick your hand in to unclog the grass. I've tried loosening the assembly for more space between the blade and the roller but no luck. I've also found that no matter what angle I adjust the catcher too, it only catches at best 50%. At worse it aids in the blade jamming. Overall poor design means my tiny yard takes much longer to mow than it should. Show details

I thought I was too old for one

Purchased from Bunnings 2 weeks ago and immediately thought what have I done? Began using it and was whingeing as it was hard to push and I am 75 years old. Used it yesterday and was astonished at the change, The blades move much more freely now and I set it on two and it was much easier to push. My lawn looks immeasurably better than when I used the powered reel mower, that left great scars and many different levels but this little ripper has ironed a lot of that out already. I am very pleased I bought it. Show details

Excellent job with hardly any effort

I cut grass on back yard, front yard, & street front. .
For effortless mowing I do this regularly. I remove all twigs before mowing .
I do not use the catcher as the mower is a great mulcher. When I finish I clean all parts with oil and a soft rag & store it in dry shed, and my mower always looks & works like new every time. .
The way the handle is made could be better though. Show details

Returned immediately

I tried tweaking all variables, it would just get stuck and stop immediately. Didn't cut grass which is it's only job. There are better options that are half the price. Show details

Perfect for small-medium lawns!!

glad I took the chance and bought this! I have a medium sized back lawn and small front lawn, all buffalo grass with some scattered dandelion weeds and this thing tore through it so well. I recommend being patient with it and clearing out any sticks, stones from your lawn before mowing as you’ll have to stop constantly to remove them from the blades (which only takes two seconds, turn it on the side and do a quick shake) it’s easy to use, easy to assemble and clean, plus no servicing, oil/petrol ect ect. Didn’t have to use the catcher either :) Show details

Broke or wouldn’t go forwards after one push !! I tried everything. Garbage

Won’t move forward. Jammed after one short push. Extremely difficult in every way. Nothing I can see that I can fix . It is just jammed into a backward motion. Will be taking it back . Show details

Very noisy

The mower is difficult to push unless on the highest setting. The lawn needs to be perfectly flat for it to push or cut. The blades squeak badly when the mower eventually moves and is almost as loud as a petrol mower. Save your money and buy something else. Show details

Grass may have built up inside wheels. Try removing and cleaning out with a good dose of CRC or WD 40 to follow up.
As others have said blade clearance may need adjusting.

is there anywhere to get parts for the 16" Victa Razor mower. I need to replace the plastic drive cogs on the end of the reel shaft. I have worn them out.

Bunnings sell these mowers, they should have parts for them. Ask at the special orders desk.
