Does anyone have the Fiskars hand lawn mower?

It has a unique design and looks to be lighter and more maneuverable. And with Fiskars rep likely to be really sharp. I can think of several places in my yard where it would be useful!

Excellent lawn mower,BUT no bag!
In my opinion it is the best on the market,BUT no bag!
You have to adjust the blades. If you are not mechanically inclined it could be a problem.
Once the blades are adjusted it cuts easy and does a really nice job.
Lowe's had the best price and if you purchase a 10% card from e bay you can save $20.
Not many reel mowers can cut 3 inches height. This one will. The manual should have had a height setting chart. It does not have that.
Hope this helps.
If you want to know how to adjust it properly let me know.

A very light push mower is not necessarily a good idea, because you need some weight to keep the wheels from sliding. Although Fiskars sells nice scissors, the mower blades will be no sharper than those from other makers and will need periodic sharpening and adjustment to cut efficiently. Finally, remember that regardless of the advertising there is no free lunch with push mowers. The energy needed to move a mower and turn the blades has to come from your muscles, electricity or gasoline.
