Earthwise 1715-16EW 16 Inch Wide, 7 Blade Push Reel Mower for Bent Grass

Product Description

What reel mower is best for you? To achieve the most effective and efficient cutting experience for your lawn you will need the correct reel mower depending on the type of lawn you have. The seven blade mowers are best used for common Bermuda, Hybrid Bermuda, zoysia, centipede and other common bent grasses. For the more common taller, wet, upright grass a 4 or 5 blade reel mower will be more efficient when cutting grass.

From the Manufacturer

The power source behind our mowers hasn't changed much in 100 years. It's still readily available on demand. You can still fuel it for the price of a banana and a glass of milk. It always works when you want it to, and it doesn't leave any residue for the environment to absorb other than a couple of foot prints in a perfectly cut lawn. People- the power behind our mowers in 1895, and the power behind them today. What has changed is the product available to the people. We've applied a century of technology to a good old fashioned idea: the reel lawn mower. Today's reel mowers are lightweight and easy to maneuver. They're ideal for today's smaller lawns, and today's hectic lifestyles. They're always ready when you're ready, and they're almost maintenance free with no spark plugs to foul or engines to clog up. They're good to the environment and they're good to the lawn, snipping the grass for a clean, precise cut. A cut that's helped us carve our niche as the nation's largest manufacturer of in-demand, on-demand reel mowers. We've spent 100 years of perfecting our reel mower designs, streamlining our production processes and searching for the best possible materials to build the best reel mowers possible. And we're proud of all that. But more important still, we've spent the last 100 years, and we'll spend the next 100 more, keeping America Green.

WOW!. I was looking for a eco friendly and economical (goodbye lawn dudes im saving $$) way to mow my lawn, and get some nice exercise without a gym. After much research and you tube vids from folks on various models, I decided on this one. I live in the south and have thick grass so the 7 blade models are always suggested. My order came fast and the assembly was very easy. While you do get a workout pushing, its a smooth push...it only stopped when I ran over a acorn top, and a couple of sticks, both came out easily...then I finished my lawn and felt pretty good that I didnt need no stinky oil and gas, just good ole fashioned elbow grease...and my lawn looks great!

I have the Worse grass anyone could EVER have, IT is A Mix of like 4 types of grass, from low to high and uneven soil to dips in the yard and that did not stop this mower !!! If you keep it low you wont have a problem with this one.. Way better cut then my old gas mower and you can mow anytime of the day without waking people up. ( Wet Grass it does Very Good! ) This is not for people that WILL let there grass grow tall. Anything higher then 2 1/2 inches will have problem with it at the first run I say you can do it take will longer. I am Very Happy with this one. And My dog does not Attack the mower,, :)

I really wanted to do a review on the Earthwise 1715-16EW 7-blade push reel mower because it works so well. I have been mowing this year with the Fiskars 18 inch stay sharp max reel mower, and I have had some problems with it. The way the front wheels are so far in front of the cutting bed with the rear wheels so far behind it can make it an issue when mowing on even a gentle hill; the bed drags on the ground and the mower scalps. I also had a problem with any little debris in the yard catching in the reel and stopping the mower. When I purchased the sharpening kit, the first time I received a kit without a crank handle. Had to go through the return process and finally received the full kit. But then when I went to remove the small gear on the reel shaft, I torqued my allen wrench 90* trying to break loose the set screw before the bolt hole finally stripped out. Don't know if they loc-tited the screw or if it was installed with an impact wrench at too high a torque setting. I ended up having to drill/tap the opposite end of the shaft for a 10mm bolt so I could attach a nut driver to backlap and resharpen the "non-contact" blades. Overall the Fiskars is not a bad machine, but for the price it has serious drawbacks. This Earthwise 7-blade mower is superior to the Fiskars at less than half the price (I paid $87 for it - was on sale - suh-weet deal). Took me about 10 minutes to attach the handles and set the height for my yard (I mow at 1.5") and I was out and mowing. The reel turns much faster for the same walking pace than the Fiskars reel and that and the fact that it has 7 blades made mowing today a single-pass effort where previously I would have to pass over the same lane 2x with the Fiskars. The rollers on the back also help keep the Earthwise level when mowing uneven areas as well as far superior when overhanging the landscape edging. Because the cutting bed is centered under the wheels, I do not have any problem with the bed contacting the ground at any location in my yard, which was definitely not the case with the Fiskars.

Time will tell if this mower is long-term reliable, but the reel and the bed look and feel well-made, the handles are sturdy and the 10" wheels had no problem with slipping (which I was originally a bit worried about).

The only minor gripe I would have is that I would prefer the handles be slightly wider and straight vs angled, but I can rig up something for my comfort very easily (perhaps some bicycle bar-ends or some such thing).

I have a residential yard and it takes me about 30 minutes to push mow. It is not a high level of exertion, just a little push with a walk.

I was worried about this purchase based on other reviews, but I am pleased that I own this mower and also that it works better than the more expensive one I previously purchased. Anyone want to buy my old Fiskars? lol.

If you think you'll have a beautiful looking yard after one cut with this, think again. If you'll only mow once a week, then go a different route. If you have the time and your body doesn't hate you just yet then this could be a match for you. From my experience, I HAD to mow 2 to 3 times a week. That'd be alright if my yard wasn't close to an acre size. It'd take close to 2.5 hours to complete my yard. When I kept up with mowing, this would run smooth and worked like a champ. When rain or work prevented me from mowing then my patience would be checked. If the grass gets to high the blades won't turn and the mower will just skid through the grass. If you have a lot of twigs, acorns, walnuts or any other debris on the ground, pick up before mowing or you'll be like me and go close to head over heels when coming to a sudden stop. It might seem I'm talking down on this but I really am not. You can't be lazy when mowing with this. You can't run over everything like you would with a gas mower. You can't wait and mow because you're not relying on a motor to get you through the thick grass but relying on that strong back of yours. I had the best looking yard on the block when I kept up with it but when I fell behind, I was punished. Oil before your first use you won't regret it

Worth the money! I have a very small front yard. As long as we cut the Saint Augustine grass on a weekly basis, it does a great job. If you let the grass get too tall, then as the other reviews have mentioned, it is a difficult process. The little mower does not like the tall weeds. It is great for exercise.

Shipped fast and packaged in water resistant box. Easy assembly, just put handle together and attach to blade reel. Getting the blade to cut a piece of paper is challenging but doable. My small yard gets cut in about 30 mins. It even did the first grass cutting of the year, which for here grass gets very long and thick in spots.

Works great for the small yard we have, low maintenance, and no gas to buy or mechanical parts to fix. LOVE IT!

This mower clips and trims the lawn...doesn't give it a chopped look like most power mowers.
The seven blades does the job !!

I have a fairly large yard that I have someone else cut, but I wanted this to cut the area around my basement windows. With this mower I can gently cut that area without it throwing grass, and slinging debris towards the plastic roof things over my basement windows, and knocking holes in them as had sometimes happened in the past. I just wanted to gently mow that area without it throwing things everywhere, and this mower works perfectly for that.

We got ours just before the mowing season. We absolutely love ours. It's easier to push then out push mower was. Our Bermuda grass is looking the best then it has in the 3 years we've moved into our new house. We also enjoy that we can mow in the early morning or late evening and not disturb neighbors, due to the quiet sound it makes.
