The Brill 38 Reel Mower w/ grass catcher is solidly built modern push reel mower. I have a very bad back and was looking for a lightweight mower to keep my yard looking good. The Brill is a pleasure to use and so light I can mow my entire yard without discomfort. I enjoy the quiet mowing experience so much I wish I had a larger yard. Everywhere you’ll read it doesn’t cut high grass. Don’t let that discourage you too much. It rains here quite a bit and sometimes that means the yard looks a bit like a hippie. I’ve never had a hiccup with the Brill. So when they say it doesn’t mow in high grass they mean HIGH GRASS. I’ve cut 5 inch grass with no problem. One drawback I’ve found is the handle wants to pop out when I hand the Brill 38 up on hooks. The first time warped the reel! After the second time I make sure the handle is secured before I pick it up. Not a big deal and it doesn’t pop out any other time. The Brill 38 cuts grass like a dream and I’m a stickler about how my lawn looks. As a bonus it’s so quiet I can mow when my wife has even her worst migraines and it doesn’t bother her. I can’t recommend the Brill 38 enough for a great mowing experience, a great looking lawn all while being environmentally responsible. Clean Air Gardening is the best internet purchasing experience hand down too.
Just got my Brill Razorcut 38 today! I had it together in 30 minutes, I couldn’t wait for my husband to get home! It was so easy to assemble, no tools! Its been about 9 days since our yard was mowed so I was worried, but no problems at all. I went over it twice to get the spots I missed. It is very easy to push, I am 5’1’’ and I had no problems! This is the second reel mower we have tried, the first one would have been fine to keep but we were very put off by the screetching that the mower made, the Brill (althought not completely silent) is much better! I used an accelerated push mower before and I think I go about the same speed with the reel mower, and I get a better workout! All in all I think it is going to be great, I gave it four stars because I don’t know how it will do over time, after I have had it a while I will leave another review! As of right now I would definately recommend!
