    A competent back up mower
    I own a gasoline powered lawn mower. My lawn is medium sized that is roughly evenly leveled. Half of the year my gasoline lawn mower is stored away. I needed a mower that I could use as a back up for when my gasoline mower is stored away. With the rotating blades appropriately adjusted along the bedknife the MJ501M cuts very well and evenly. I make sure that the lawn is not too tall and is clear of twigs. The grass catcher does not snap off, it does a good job of catching grass, a small percentage of grass does not land in the grass catcher. The MJ501M is lightweight easy to store and has done a good job of cutting my lawn. The MJ501M reel mower is a great back up mower, it has even drawn interest from some of my neighbors.

    Valuable part of my yardwork equipment!
    I have an area in my yard that has a good deal of gravel under the grass, and it makes mowing with a power mower dangerous. My Sun Joe Reel Mower does the trick here...I was very surprised at how well it cuts. The grass in this area is tough and I occasionally need to back up and hit it again in spots, but this is not a problem. I think once I get the area in shape, it will be a cinch to keep it cut cleanly with this mower. Good job!

    Easy to assemble even for a novice. Kinda fun to run around our small yard with it. Grass catcher really cuts down on the raking too.

    My Sunjoe mower came without parts. These guys are the best. The replacements came within 2 days. They stand behind their products. I will recommend to all my friends and family

    The blades come dull, the peices and parts are cheaply made, the grass cather does nothing but pop off the whole time, and the left side jumps lengths while mowing.

    This product just doesn't even cut well. My grass was short before I began cutting and it took me forever to cut my small lawn. Buy another product.

    Love this mower! It was super easy to put together, very easy to adjust and does a great job on my small yard. I've had other reel mowers but this is my first one with a grass catcher which I LOVE - no more raking and as I run into rocks, pine cones, or twigs I can just pick them up and throw them in the catcher. Really really pleased with my purchase.

    Good quality and works well
    Almost all the grass clippings seem to collect on the left side of the grass catcher. I have to stop and shove it over to the right before I can continue mowing. Since this is a manual mower, even tiny twigs can stop the reel blade from cutting. I wish they could design it to cut edge-to-edge, including the area taken up by the wheels.
