Quality Putting Green Reel Mower for 1/5th the Price

Hudson Star Classic Greensmower

In the 14 years we have been in business, we regularly receive requests for the best home putting green reel mower. After looking at the few that are in the reasonable to low end of the market, we have finally bit the bullet and added greens-type reel mowers to our line. The Hudson Star Mower we added is the higher end manual push version, the Hudson Classic Cut. This is a really high quality machine, 11 blades, designed for longevity and ease of use. Others we looked at had hard to change mowing heights, were heavier, or felt cheap. Compared to other greens mowers that can cost $10,000 or more, this putting green reel mower is very affordable. Remember, standard home reel mowers do not cut low enough, and do not have enough blades to cut finely enough for a putting green.

The Classic-Cut Series:
The classic cut reel mower is designed to allow home greens owners to experience the same professional golf course quality greens care enjoyed by professionals. Due to its unique design and exacting manufactured standards, the Classic Cut Mower is used by golf course professionals to help solve those “difficult” mowing problems such as soft, sensitive, or newly seeded greens, inaccessible tees, restricted or hard to cut fringes, noise sensitive areas, or simply to obtain that “final touch” “manicured” look.

Look at all those Blades!

Features

  • 11 Blade Computer Balanced Reel.

  • 1/8″ to 3/4″ Infinite Cut Height Adjustment.

The Classic Cut Mower is lightweight, rugged, quiet, easily adjustable and maintenance free. It is the perfect tool for the time sensitive enthusiast who just wants to relax and spend their time improving their game.

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.

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 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.

Grass Catchers for NaturCut and Brill Razorcut 38

Brill Razorcut 38 Grass Catchers: We have just learned that the US supply of Grass Catchers for the Brill Razorcut 38 will soon run out. That would be a bummer especially with restocking forecasted as taking 6 months.

NaturCut Grass Catchers work with the Brill Razorcut 38: We have made some inquiries and believe that the NaturCut Grass Catcher will also work on the Brill Razorcut 38 Reel Mower. If this is true, this will be great news for the spring and summer seasons.

Best, Lightest Push Reel Mower

Best, Lightest Push Reel Mower: We are often asked what is the best and lightest push reel  mower. Our answer has been the same for 15 years. It is the Brill Razorcut 38. The Brill Razorcut 38 weighs in at just under 17 pounds, making it the lightest mower available. The blades are flame hardened and are set to miss the bedknife by .05mm.

Brill Mowers: All Brill mowers come with a gap setting gauge. When your mower arrives you do not need to do anything but store the gauge with the manual. Each year before you begin mowing, use the gauge to reset the gap between the reel blades and the bedknife.

Brill Razorcut 33: Brill makes even a lighter mower with its Brill Razorcut 33. This mower is identical to the 38 but its blades are 33 cm. wide compared to the 38 cm. blades of the Razorcut 38. The Razorcut 33 weighs in at under 16 pounds.

Weight Debate: There is some debate on which is easier to use, a light or heavy mower. I have used both. The cutting experience is different. A heavier mower, like the Fiskars Momentum, is better for cutting grass which is high. A lighter mower, like the Brill or NaturCut, is easier to use for maintaining your lawn. All Mowers: All mowers mentioned in this blog offer a grass catcher.

Great new price on NaturCut Ideal Lawn Mower

New Price: People Powered Machines has lowered its price on the popular NaturCut Ideal Lawn Mower. This reel mower is now for sale at $185.00. If you have been sitting on the fence, this is a great time to buy.

NaturCut Ideal: The NaturCut Ideal cuts from .6″ to 2.75″ and mows a 16″ swath. It is powered with 10″ wheels and cuts with 5 flame hardened reel blades. The Ideal utilizes the non-contact cutting system which means the blades stay sharp much longer than mowers which use the contact cutting system. Estimated blade life for the Ideal is 8-10 years.

Two Year Warranty: The Ideal comes with a two year warranty and using a Grass Catcher is an option with this mower.
