My Son Matt and His Mower Choice

My Son Matt: My son Matt is 14 and has been helping me mow for the last few years. He started out having a small patch to mow. Next he mowed the whole front yard which is about 1/4 of an acre. And now he sometimes mows the whole lawn which is about 1/2 an acre.

Brill, NaturCut, and Fiskars: Matt started using the Brill, then chose the NaturCut, and then the Fiskar reel mower. He had difficulty with all three. The Brill was hard for him to push and couldn’t cut high grass. The NaturCut while it cut high grass was still a challenge for him to push through high grass. The Fiskars required maximum effort which meant he had to stop and rest.

The Silent Cut Mower

Mascot Silent Cut: This season we added the Mascot Silent Cut reel mower to our stable, and Matt has a new favorite. He just cut the back of our lawn in 25 minutes. It is about a 1/4 of an acre and the grass was quite high. Naturally, he is getting stronger but he is amazed at how quickly he can get the job done. Matt loves this Silent Cut push reel mower!

Brill Batteries and Chargers

Brill Batteries and Chargers: As many of you know, we are now rebuilding Brill Batteries. After being rebuilt, the batteries are better than they were when new! We can rebuild the batteries to 2.2 Ah which is what you have or to 3.0 Ah which is 30% more powerful than what you have.

Now Chargers: We can also make new chargers for you, which will charge your battery faster than the Brill charger which came with your battery.

To Order: You can make an order online at peoplepoweredmachines.com to have your battery rebuilt. We’ll process the order and send you the address to which you send your old Brill Battery. Or call 978 884 8156 to order a battery or charger.

Testimonial – Snow Scoop by Snowmaster

Testimonial for the Snow Scoop by Snowmaster: Hello, I just wanted to comment on the quality of your Snowmaster Snow Scoop. I have used this product for several years in my job. When it snows I have to shovel several sidewalks and steps to get children safely to school. The Snow Scoop has really helped me to do this in a fast and less tiring way. Thank you!

Silent Cut Reel Mower Does a Great Job!

First Spin: I just took my Silent Cut 21″ reel mower out for its first job of mowing my 1/2 acre lawn. Wow, what a beautiful job the Silent Cut push reel mower did. Because its blades are 21″ wide it took quite a bit less time to do.

The Silent Cut Mower

Blade Adjustment: The blade adjustment is done using the elongated brass adjustment nut. You need to adjust the nut on both sides of the mower. Make sure to just adjust the brass piece with a wrench.

Easy to Push: With the weight of the mower I expected it to be difficult to push. But I was happily surprised that once you got the Silent Cut 21″ started it was fairly easy to push. This was the mower which I was recommending for mowing Bermuda and Zoysia grass. Now I’ll recommend it for all grasses.

Brill Rebuilt Batteries Are Popular

Rebuilding Brill Batteries: When we launched this program of rebuilding Brill Batteries we were not sure how popular it would be. These are the batteries used in Brill Accu 38 electric reel mowers, Brill ASM380 reel mowers, and Brill Accu Trimmers. But after two weeks, we can tell it is very popular. So keep those old Brill Batteries – they are worth something.

2.2 Ah or 3.0 Ah: The Brill Battery you have is a 2.2 Ah, and we can rebuild it so it is better than it was when new. Or we can rebuild it to 3.0 Ah which is 30% more powerful and runs 30% longer.

Remember: Don’t throw old Brill Batteries out! We can also rebuild other batteries, just not lithium ion ones.

Old Brill Batteries Are Worth $

Old Brill Batteries: Save your Brill Batteries – they are worth cash. Just contact us and we’ll tell you how. The Brill Batteries are used to power either the ASM380, the Accu Razorcut, or the Brill Trimmer. With our ability to rebuild Brill Batteries to be better than when new – your old batteries have just become valuable.



2.2 AH or 3.0 AH:
Brill Batteries can now be built to either 2.2 AH or 3.0 AH. The 2.2 AH is basically what you first received except our rebuilt are stronger and don’t take as long to recharge. The 3.0 AH is 30% stronger than the new Accu Battery and takes less time to recharge.

So if you have a Brill Battery: Let us know!

Brill and NaturCut Parts

Increase in Parts Orders: One thing we have noticed this year is the greater need for parts for Brill and NaturCut mowers. I’m not sure if it is related to the economy but many more requests for parts are coming in. It could be that folks have had their machines for such a long time that replacement parts are needed. Or it could be that people are in the fix-up mode rather than purchasing a new machine.
