Reel mower?

    I need to get a reel mower(I think).

    I obtained a property on a college campus, and the back is so steep that I don't think(I'm going to see for sure this friday) that I can even walk it with my 21" lawnboy. The 36" walk behind is definitely out of the question, as it would slide down the hill and end up in the lake that this property butts up to.

    I've seen the reel mowers at places like Menards for around 100-150 bucks. Are these decent for occasional use, or do I need to get a better one online somewhere?

    I told the customer it would have to be cut with a trimmer, and that it wouldn't look the greatest but they agreed to it. But I don't really want it looking all uneven.
