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.
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!
