Lest take a closer look at the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower to see what makes it such a convenient grass cutting equipment.
Simple to Use
So yes, I admit that reel mowers with wide cutting decks tend to be a bit difficult to maneuver around. However, the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower comes with the turning ability of small reel mowers thanks to its 10-inch wheels which also come with a second pair of dual radial wheels.
It covers a wide area helping you to save time by reducing the number of times you need to move around your lawn.
You can simply adjust the height of the blades with a simple snap lever for that well trimmed and manicured lawn. You do not have to worry about assembling the reel mower for the first time since it comes pre-assembled. All you will be required to do is to check the height of the blades and the friction in the wheels, make your adjustments and you are ready to go.
A clever ball bearing setting of the steel blades improves on grass cutting efficiency by reducing the amount of friction among them.
The five steel blades are set at different angles while efficiently achieving contact with the cutting bar. This results in a neat cutting of the lawn irrespective of how tall the grass is. Simply use the level to pick your preferred height and let the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower do the rest.
The back dual radial wheels make moving the mower a simple affair. You will not get tired too quickly allowing you to get the job done on your lawn. Unlike other reel mowers with weak blades that have a hard time cutting through twigs and tough grass, the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower goes through tough grass with ease.
To add on that, the faster you walk, the faster the blades move increasing efficiency as you will use less energy to push through the grass.
The drawback however is that when twigs get to the edges of the blades, the mower seems to struggle. This means that you will have to take out the twigs yourself before you can continue with your mowing.
Luckily, you do not have to apply too much effort in normal conditions. A steady walk will get the job done.
Adjusting the Height
The basic design of most reel lawn mowers is a lever for height adjustment that only offers 3 levels. However, the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower takes things to the next level by offering up to 9 levels of height from 1 inch to 3 inches.
This is also done through a lever that allows you to make slight variations. If you think that the top height of 3 inches makes it hard to push through tough grass then think again. You will still be in a position to cut through it with ease.
Easy to Maintain
Maintenance doesn’t come easier or cheaper. The blades will not blunt anytime soon and you likely have a couple of years of consistent use. Radial wheels, well position steel blades, and large 10-inch front wheels are adjusted about all that you will need to think about with the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower.
The point is simple. Very few components make this a highly durable equipment as very few things could go wrong. However, every so often you will need to check the screws and bolts and ensure they are properly tightened. And that’s about it. You also get 2 years warranty on all parts of the lawnmower.
Excellent Value for Your Money
With dual radial wheels, 5 well-positioned blades that won’t dull for at least a few years and can cut through the tough grass as well as a 2 years warranty, you are getting an equipment that offers more features that most popular and leading brands at a price that is slightly less and quite manageable.
So, to summarize the reel mower is a great choice especially for those who have concerns about tough grass.

There are plenty of diseases that can find their way into your lawn due to an improper cutting of the grass. Motorized mowers have an engine that runs on gasoline. If this spills on the grass, it could cause damage. Oil leaks are yet another factor.
Since the Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower requires neither of these, you can rest easy knowing that your lawn will be left in good condition.
Bacteria and other disease-causing fungus are naturally occurring in the soil. If the blades of the mower are not well adjusted and tear through the grass instead of performing a clean cut, this will leave open wounds on the grass allowing the disease to infect it.
The Scotts 2000-20 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower has well-positioned blades that offer a clean cut on the grass leaving your lawn in pristine condition.
