The Brill Battery and Brill Charger

Brill Batteries: We are very happy to say that we can rebuild Brill batteries better than when they were new. Our customers have been very pleased with the service.

Old Brill Batteries: If you have an old Brill Battery and do not want it, please contact us. We’ll buy it for $10 and have it rebuilt. Please let us know if you have a battery which we can buy.



Brill Chargers:
We can now say that we have a charger for the Brill battery which is better than the charger Brill sold. It charges more quickly and does not over heat.

There are two options when rebuilding your battery. We can rebuild the battery to 2.2 Ah which is exactly what you have. Or we can rebuild to 3.0 Ah which is 30% more powerful than what you have. These rebuilt batteries will last longer and charge more quickly.

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.

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.

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.

Brill Parts: Above is a parts diagram for the Brill Razorcut 38. All the parts have numbers which we need to fulfill your order. We have parts for the Luxus 38, Luxus 33, Razorcut 38, and Razorcut 33. We can also rebuild Accu Batteries so that they are stronger than when new.

Rebuilding Depleted Brill Batteries

Rebuild Brill Batteries: We are very pleased to announce that we can now rebuild Brill Batteries that have lost their charge.

Two Recell Options: We offer two recell options for the 24V Brill packs. They are either our standard capacity 2.2Ah (or 2200mAh if you prefer) nickel-metal hydride (NiMh) cells or 3.0Ah NiMh cells. From what I can glean from the part number on the cells of the Brill pack we serviced last week the OE capacity is 2.0Ah via nickel-cadmium (NiCd) cells.

Two Services: Either one of our services would provide a run-time improvement over the OE pack. Additionally, since we recell the packs using NiMh cells they are more environmentally friendly to manufacture and do not suffer from charge memory effects that NiCd typically do.

The Cells: The cells we use are made to our specifications to be high-drain cells, meaning they are designed to take high loads for a sustained period of time (ours can take a sustained 10X cell capacity load). Basically this means the cells were made for a high-drain use in mind (ie. power tools or in your case lawn mowers which need peak torque output) and are not typical cells which would be used for low power electrical devices (cordless phones, etc.).

Supply of Brill Batteries: As the supply of Brill Batteries has run out, this is great news. Save those old Brill Batteries!
