This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in February of 2018. If you've got sensitive neighbors or a postage-stamp patch of lawn, you can probably do without power landscaping equipment that takes up valuable storage space when it's not raising a fuel-guzzling ruckus in your yard. A compact and eco-friendly reel mower from our handy assortment only needs someone to push it to quietly and efficiently cut grass down to an HOA-approved height in short order. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best reel mower on Amazon.
