Great when there is no petrol smelle
Found lawn mower easy to maneuver but not as easy as it looks. Requires some effort unlike a normal mower would push it self basically only using on small space not even 6 metre square and doesn't now down or over thicker pads of grass, gets stuck easy and potential danger when I have to remove acorn nuts from the blades that have fallen from tree, jamming in the blades. I think It would be ideal if lawn was already maintained and extremely short grass or it struggles, even with brand new blades. Handle not strong so needed securing, with tape, as bolt fell out, after three metres. Bolt not ln line with grooves and could be made with more secure handle. OK for price paid.
Don't waste your time or money
It doesn't cut the grass at all, it is almost impossible to get the right height adjustment, it probably moves after you adjust it. I have tried it tens of times and it cuts very small amount of grass every time you pass, you will have to pass the same area over 10 times. It was sitting in the garage for a while, then when I found its invoice just returned back to Bunnings. The were kind of enough to take it back.
Good for what its meant to be - a push mower
I was apprehensive after reading all the troubling reviews, but took the chance (since I had the option to return). OK lets get to the point - The Ozito push mower is NOT a normal gas/electric mower. So the usual applies:
1. It will get stuck on long weeds & sticks (pull them out beforehand)
2. Its less effective if grass is left too long
3. It does require some muscle and momentum to be effective (you won't glide thru like an ice skater!)
5. It can't cut at the edge of walls/barriers (wheels get in the way)
I believe all of the above...is standard for push mowers. However this is cheaper, quieter, and requires less maintenance. The key is to play with the blade/cutter spacing to get the most effective cut. Personally, I use ~1mm spacing (i.e. still free-rolling) and it seems to work well. Had it for 12 months or so, still no problems. If your garden is messy, uneven or poorly kept, a push mower will probably cause you more stress tho.
It is cheap plastic junk
I bought it on 16/3/17 at Bunnings. I am not quite happy with the cutting results as it struggles when the lawn gets a little bit long. Also, it is not easy to maneuver due to the missing mannual. It is not easy to operate. It is hard to maintain as it becomes rusty easily. You must keep it dry and well oiled after every cut.
Great mower for Buffalo
Have this mower at home brilliant for my 10sqm Patch in the backyard,
Got it with the catcher good idea makes it effortless to mow, and easy to clean up.
Just dont let the lawn get too long as it will struggle but apart from that its a good little unit with the great bunnings warranty why would you bother paying more?
a cheap and nasty grass cutter
i was thinking of buying this grass cutter,
last week i found this model by the side walk for council dumster pick up.so i happily took it home
the cutting blade axle was siezed,so i, m thinking,simple-just spray wd-40 and i got myself a cheap grass cutter
wrong,its completly rusted were both ends of the cutting rod axle attach to the wheels
so i spend a hour pulling it apart.its cheap plastic junk,made of steel that will rust asap.cannot get it to turn,so if you
buy this ozita,you must keep it dry and well oiled after every cut,otherwise once it rusts,its useless.all plastic and cheap
steel parts,if you treat it like a baby,cleaning it, washing it,then oiling after each cut,then enjoy.otherwise get something better
Good product, cutting well,
Cutting well and worth for spend $68, love that product, I have 4M by 4M small garden, have water bufflow lawn, it's cuts perfect 30mm to 45mm, I'm recommended this product to buy as long as you maintain same hight every time, otherwise it's hard but
Well it works kind of, like you need to adjust it and oil it like 50 times a week to get it going by that time you spent enough time to cover an 8 hour shift at work and buy a real mower.
If your 65 or 80 and have very short grass it may make you look cooler though for your friends.
good to use if your lawn is perfect and without any loose particles. Things get caught in the blade very easily which makes it very frustrating to use. I will definately buy a diffrent lawn mower that is more resistant.
thank you Ozito for making my life harder in mowing lawns.
Average quality. Only good for small lawn
After my first use a bolt had fallen off and another two were loose. This was because there were no washes included with the mower. I went to bunnings and purchased washers and these bolts didnt come loose again.
Since then a different bolt from the height adjustment part has fallen off twice. There is a rectangular oddly curved washer that was lost and this cannot be bought seperately. It costs around $20 to $25 to place a special order and get the entire part. I gave up and fabricated the washer myself.
It is okay for a very small lawn like at a unit or small townhouse. Ideally spend a bit more on something much better like a Flymo H40 and save yourself a lot of hassle.
Fantastic - Exceeded expectations!
I bought this yesterday to mow the nature strip - absolutely brilliant! Cut perfectly, very easy to push - I wish had more grass to use it on! It has done a MUCH better job than the mowing man did 2 weeks ago with a petrol mower. This little mower has far exceeded my expectations.
Does the job
I bought this from Bunnings not this exact model but $79 from Bunnings at the moment.
I have a small front and backyard, I'm a single mum so I wanted something I could work myself and save some money rather then paying someone to come and do my lawn.
I had been putting off getting the lawn done and the backyard was rather long . But honestly this did the job . I am so happy ! Obviously had to push over the long bits a few times to chop it all but that was no problem. Once I had finished I went back over it all and it was great. I feel like i...
Pretty darn good
I have mowed my lawn twice with the Ozito. It works very well and does a great job of cutting the grass. I switched over to the Ozito after the second Flymo broke. I bought the first Flymo and on the 2nd cut a screw/knob broke. I got it replaced and the very same thing happened. It never cut the grass well in the first place. The Ozito definitely cuts very very well. Fingers crossed it will last.
Great for REGULAR lawn maintenance
I recently moved into a new house with a terribly overgrown lawn. This mower was no good as the grass was far too long, so I had to use a petrol mower to cut it down. Now I just go over the lawns once every two weeks and it keeps the grass and dandelions in control. The best bit, no petrol costs and NO fumes in my face while working.
A great device, likely to work well for years
This mower is really only good for grass up to about two inches long, so needs to be used regularly.
In late 2015 I purchased some replacement gears for my mower because the old ones no longer drove the wheels. The new gears came with a new design of grab pins that very likely remedy the issue I encountered. These pins go through each end of the axil, biting the inside of the gears to drive the blade when the mower is pushed forward, while the pins float enabling free wheeling when the mower is pulled in reverse. The new pin design is likel...
Perfect for the normal family yard. Great fun too!
For a start push mowers aren't meant to cut excessively long grass, so all the people complaining shouldn't be :/ Our yard has very little sticks and stones, and we have a yard bigger than the norm. I didn't have to stop once. It did a perfect job leaving the lawn lush and smooth. Described by our neighbors as "A golf course fairway.'' Really easy to use. Im 14 and now cant wait to mow on the weekends. It slides upon a different surface. but push a little harder and she is back on track. Save money on fuel and oil and makes mowing fun! Please don't be turned off by all these negative reviews, as this mower will change your gardening experience.
It's worth the money and it works
It's a cheap hand mower! You push hard and it cuts grass. I didn't have any problems with assembly and I managed to cut a very overgrown lawn. It gets caught on sticks etc but you can just pull back and use your foot to turn back the blade wheel and clear it. It cuts really long grass if you kind of take a run up and just do a little at a time. Now that my lawn is short it works brilliantly!
The directions for assembly of the Ozito Reel Mower should include the following;
1. Start with a lawn like a bowling green.
2. Clear intended mowing area of anything larger than a 5 cent piece.
3. If there has been an overnight dew, go and do something else. ( will not cut damp grass)
4. Adjust blade height a minimum of 6 times ( long grass, short grass, rye grass, etc.)
I keep pushung forward.
Hopefully I won't wear out before I manage to great the afore mention bowling green.
Energy efficient, and I'm getting plenty of exercise.
Will not cut close enough, despite constantly adjusting the cutting height.
