The wide 20 inch cutting blade will help you get your lawn mowed faster with fewer passes. The blades are made of heat treated steal and ball bearings give it a very smooth rotation for easy, precision cutting.

A lot of people feel good about the fact that they are mowing their lawns without using electricity, or worse yet, a big, polution spewing, gasoline mower. Although this mower is people powered many reviewers commented that it was quite easy to operate.
There are several features that I like. The height adjustment is located close to one of the rear wheels and is very easy to access. Just push a lever and you can slide it to the correct height. Each height level is clearly marked. The mower cuts very smoothly and the blades spin well with minimal force from the operator.
This mower is not for everyone however. It’s weight is 35 pounds which is fairly lightweight but may be a little more difficult for some people than a smaller, lighter lawn mower. If you don’t mow your lawn frequently enough and it gets a little too tall it might be difficult to trim, although another reviewer did say that they have let their lawn go a couple of times and even when the grass reached about 6 inches in height the mower still handled it fairly easily. With that being said, it’s obvious that a lawn mower that is powered only by the person pushing it is going to require a bit more physical effort than either an electric or a gas mower.
Overall, if you are looking for an environmentally friendly lawn mower, this would be a good choice.
