Top 4 Push Reel Mowers

The Top Four: The top four push reel mowers are the Brill, Fiskars, NaturCut, and Silent Cut. One of these four will suit your mowing needs with a lawn of 10,000 square feet or less. The Brill mowers are the lightest and smallest mowers. The Fiskars Momentum weighs about 42 lbs but cuts right to the edge of the mower. The NaturCut are the second lightest mowers and cut from .6″ to 3.5″. The Silent Cut push reel mowers cut the best of all and weigh between 38 and 45 lbs depending on the model.

The Silent Cut Mower

Mowing Habits: Your mowing habits will determine which mower is best for you as well as the type of grass you have. For those mowing Bermuda or Zoysia, one of the Silent Cut models will work best for you. This is because it has six reel blades necessary for cutting Bermuda or Zoysia. If you will mow regularly when the grass reaches 3″ high, the Brills would be a good choice. Brill mowers can cut up to 1.8″. If you want to cut higher, the NaturCut offer a wide range of cutting heights. And the Fiskars does as well, cutting from 1″ to 4″.

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.

Fiskars Momentum – Blade Sharpening Tips

Fiskars Momentum – Blade sharpening:  Regarding sharpening the blades or the the Fiskars Momentum Push Reel Mower. With further investigation & testing, we are now reversing our opinion re: blade “sharpening”, saying “Fiskars does not recommend sharpening the Momentum™ reel mower. The equipment and processes used in home sharpening kits, and even by many professional sharpeners, will likely not be able to achieve the strict tolerances required to maintain the non-contact nature of the cutting system. In the unlikely event that the blades on a heavily used Momentum™ manual reel mower begin to show signs of dulling, Fiskars recommends backlapping to restore the blade edges.”  To “backlap” the Momentum™ reel mower, an abrasive lapping compound is applied to the blades with a brush and the reel is spun backwards via a special hand crank until the blades are smooth and sharpness is restored. While existing backlapping kits for reel mowers can be modified to work with Momentum™ push reel lawn mower, Fiskars is developing a custom kit that will be available in late 2011 or early 2012. The Fiskars kit will include a hand crank designed specifically for the Momentum™ mower, a lapping compound ideally suited for the Momentum™ mower’s blades, an application brush and clear, easily followed instructions.

Length of Time Before Sharpening: How long should the mower go before blades need to be sharpened on the Fiskars Momentum reel mower?  They can go years,  do to the non-contact blade system? Under normal usage the blades should remain sharp for the life of the mower.

Grass Catchers for Brill Razorcut 38s and 33s

NaturCut Grass Catchers: Yesterday we wrote about how we thought the NaturCut Universal Grass Catcher would work on Brill Razorcut 38 Reel Lawn mowers. Our man tested the catchers yesterday and found that the NaturCut Grass Catcher works for both the Brill Razorcut 38 and the Brill Razorcut 33! Great news!

Brill Grass Catchers:The US supply of Brill Grass Catchers is running very low and will soon be depleted. We do not expect to have more Brill Grass Catchers this season. So having the NaturCut Grass Catcher fit and work well with the Brill mowers is wonderful news.
