2008 marked the year in which Brill converted from the Luxus reel mowers to the new Razorcut reel mowers. Brill makes three versions of the Razorcut; The Razorcut Accu, The Razorcut 38, and The Razorcut 33. The Accu is the electric battery version. The Razorcut 38 is the 38 cm blade reel mower and the Razorcut 33 is the 33 cm blade reel mower. Judging from our customers satisfaction and our sales, Brill’s move was a resounding success.
The new model has a dramatically improved handle and improved cosmetics. Brill did away with the hour glass handle in favor of an aluminum stem set up between the bottom section and where you grip the handle. The handle folds for storage or transport.
The Razorcut continues to offer the silent cut in which the blades miss the cutting bar by .05mm. When the mower needs adjustment, you use a feeler gauge and 10mm wrench to adjust the blades. I adjust my mower each spring.
To maintain your mower and keep it running well for many years, we recommend spraying the blades with a silicone spray before each use. Spray the reel blades and when you are done, wipe the blades clean. This simple 5 minute chore will keep your reel mowers humming.
The reel mowers have an easy to use blade height adjustment. The range is .08″ to 1.8″. The Razorcut offers the option of adding a Grass Catcher. Specific catchers are made for each Brill model.
