  • Since June 2003, we have stocked Brill reel mowers at our own warehouse. Don't order from a company that might not even have it! Your order will ship from Indiana within one business day.

    The Brill Luxus 33 is identical to the Luxus 38, except that it is smaller. It is 33 cm wide instead of 38 cm. It is a good choice if you're looking for a mower to handle just a small area.

    This is a discontinued product. Please see the Razorcut 33 reel mower.

    The German made Brill weighs just 15 pounds, which is less than half the weight of many competing reel mowers. It also features a "silent cut" design in which the blade narrowly misses the bedknife by less than a millimeter, reducing friction and increasing blade life significantly.

    Other features:

  • Flame hardened, welded steel blades (American lawnmowers have softer tempered alloy, riveted blades

  • Silent Cut Design (The blade misses the bedknife by less than a millimeter. This reduces friction and allows the mower to cut the grass like scissors

  • Long sharpening interval! You adjust the blades on the Brill, so you can easily go a up to a decade or more without sharpening.

  • Dry Powder Coat on metal components

  • Sealed bearings

  • 8 inch diameter wheels

  • Brill mowers feature a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.


  • Technical Specs:

  • 33 cm cutting width (13 inches)

  • Cutting height adjusts easily from 0.7" to 1.8"

  • 7 inch metal cover protects overhanging flowers/shrubs

  • Five blades


  • Stop struggling with a hard-to-start, noisy, polluting gasoline powered mower. With a manual reel lawnmower, you just push and it mows! It's so quiet that you can carry your cordless phone while you're mowing and actually hear it ring. No engine trouble, no running out of gas, no disturbing your neighbors with noise.

    Modern reel mowers are easy to push! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. People who think they are hard to push usually haven't seen or touched a reel lawn mower in 20 years. How hard can it be to push a 15 pound mower? See our testimonials section to see what our customers have to say!

    Summary:
    A light weight 15 pound German made reel mower. Silent cut design means it is easy to push and can go up to a decade or more between sharpenings.


    Detailed information on the ball bearing system: The Brill reel mowers have a sealed bearing with a separate bearing race. This is the way such bearings were produced until recent manufacturing technology allowed for the entire structure (bearing and race) to be produced as a sealed unit. The Sunlawn mowers feature the newer style of sealed bearing.

    This mower didn’t work for me at all. Downhill, the wheels would skid and not turn the blades. Even when I cut the lawn very short, the mower blades would fail to cut the grass. Uphill wasn’t much better. I think you would need a very fine type of grass for this mower to work.

    This was my first mower. For some it will be great, for others less so. For the blades to turn it needs traction so it won’t cut on wet grass. If, like my lawn, you have a mixture of growing speeds and grass hts, this mower will not do a good cut once you get into the thick of the grass growing season. I love using this for it’s quite, clean, meditative attributes, but after 2 years I bought a gas-powered mower. This was because I want to cut my grass very high (long) and I had very uneven grass/weed lengths (nut sedge etc). If you have a smallish, evenly growing lawn you will love this. If you don’t cut your lawn until it is higher than the highest cut on this mower you will struggle. Quality of product is excellent.
