Dual radial wheels, a classic design and thick handles with extra sharp blade for an efficient accurate cut perfectly defines the Scotts 2000-20, 20 Inch Classic Push reel Lawn Mower. Being a walk behind mower, it draws power from you and utilizing the triple height adjuster, it tackles low to tall grasses with equal ease.

In-depth Review of the Scotts 2000-20, 20-Inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower  

Ease Of Use

Usually, wider the cutting deck, the harder a push mower is to maneuver but the Scotts 2000-20, 20-Inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower with dual tracking radial wheels and 20 inch cutting deck is actually quite easy to chug around. This mower tends to cover a wider footprint reducing the number of passes required. Height adjustment is handled with a snap lever and the dual wheels with radial tires reduce friction when trudging over uneven or gradient surfaces. As for the blade assembly, it features ball bearing arrangement with tempered steel blades to reduce friction and increase cut efficiency. Assembling the Scotts reel mower doesn’t need much time as it comes pre-assembled with a few minutes required to adjust the height and wheel friction for the first time.

Cut Quality

The cutting deck features five blades arranged at varying inclinations to reduce friction, which in turn helps maintain cut quality irrespective of the grass type or its height. Add to this the dual radial tires and all you have to do is leisurely push the mower ahead to send the blades spinning at high speeds. Dicing through thick and tough grass with this walk behind mower is rather easy and the quicker one walks the faster the blades spin. Thankfully, you don’t have to jog behind this mower in order to get a quick precise cut. Walking as you normally would, tends to produce the best results regardless of the terrain or grass type. However, it tends to suffer near edges and cannot handle large twigs. You can at best manage 6 inches close to the edges, which is because of its fixed direction design and with large twigs you have to stop and manually remove the twig from the blade assortment before continuing forward.

Height Adjustment

Typically, most reel mowers tend to come with a height adjustment lever that at best provides 3 cutting heights. The Scotts 2000-20, 20-Inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower however offers a total of 9 height settings in gradual increments using a single lever. Easy to adjust and even at the highest height setting, the mower does not feel tedious to push neither does it skip out on taller grass.


Two years warranty on all components, radial tires for increased longevity and easier maneuverability, toughened stainless steel blades inclined to reduce friction and a well thought out design all add to the mower’s durability. Occasionally, the Scotts reel mower will need a thorough oiling and probably tightening of the nuts and bolts but that’s about it. The blades will not dull for at least a couple of years and when they do, it won’t cost much to re-sharpen them.

Cost Effectiveness

20 Inch cutting deck size, 2 years long warranty cover, 9 height adjustment modules and dual radial tires for reduced friction – such an impressive list of features more than justifies the price of the Scotts 2000-20 reel mower. Interestingly, this push mower is priced similar to many leading brands but seems to offer a bit more than them.

  • Extra wide cutting deck for less passes
  • Easy to maneuver inspite of deck size


  • Tends to suffer near the edges
  • Cannot handle large twigs


Total Score

Great Reel Mower for Larger LawnsGot uneven terrain or maybe a larger lawn? The Scotts 2000-20, 20-inch Classic Push Reel Lawn Mower with its wider cutting deck, plentiful height adjustments and simple yet superior push technology will make life that much easier for you. It is just as efficient and easy as a motorized mower minus the negatives obviously!
