Exclusive | The Most Innovative Reel Mower in more than 100 Years

  • Easy-to-push reel mower has twice the cutting power of other models
  • Well-engineered design, with self-sharpening blades and low-friction chain drive
  • Padded grip offers multiple grip positions, making it comfortable for users of all heights
  • Winner of the 2010 Popular Mechanics Green Design Award

Reel mowers are preferred by golf course owners and lawn connoisseurs because they give the most precise, manicured cut. But the basic design hadn't changed since the 1890s — until now. This ingenious mower replaces the rear roller bar with "outrigger" front wheels, vastly reducing drag and allowing for precise height adjustment. The self-sharpening blades and low-friction chain drive are superior too. The cutting reel runs the whole width of the machine — no more trying to mow grass that the wheels have matted down. This award-winning mower cuts through grass like butter and it's very easy to maneuver, too.

  • Steel, plastic
  • 21" W x 38" H overall
  • 44" L handle
  • 18" wide cutting swath

Comments about Reel Mower:

I bought this mower because I wanted to be able to mow at times when a gas machine would disturb my neighbors - dinnertime, early Sunday morning, etc. The idea was good and Fiskars is a reliable brand. What I didn't take into consideration was that a reel mower requires that you push it fairly quickly so that the blades turn fast. If you can't walk fast enough, this mower cuts unevenly or not at all. As a disabled person, I can't push this heavy machine fast enough. However, if you want a quiet mower, this is it. Just not for me.

Cons

Comments about Reel Mower:

My lawn is horrible. My grass is mostly bahia grass and patchy weeds, but this mower cuts it surprisingly well. The bahia seed shoots always come up to fast though and the reel mower struggles with them, mostly pushing them over. I find myself pulling them before mowing. (I have a small lawn) I bought this after having two regular walk behinds decide to become lawn planters... I am quit happy with the purchase and would recommend to anyone who wants to get away from the regular noisy, gasoline spilling, dust spewing walk behinds and get some exercise at the same time, despite being quite easy to push!

    I am really pleased with this mower. It was easy to assemble. I am a small woman and I do not have any difficulty maneuvering this mower on my two small yards. The adjustable blade length is also really easy to adjust.

      Comments about Reel Mower:

      Wasn't sure this would work on a Florida lawn,and my neighbors were absolutely sure it wouldn't.But it did! I love being able to mow in the cool of the early morning(because it's so quiet) before the heat makes it miserable. I love not having to go fill up a gas can before I can mow. I love not having to pull and pull on a cord to start the mower.It's actually fun to use and draws attention.My neighbors are impressed.

      Comments about Reel Mower:

      This mower works wonderfully on a nice manicured lawn. It's not as good on my weedier areas!I have almost an acre and a quarter to mow, and lots of beds & trees to mow around. I use a riding mower for the larger areas, this is perfect for those small places where the other mower doesn't fit.

      Pros

      • Adjustable Cut-Lengths

      • Hard to push at times
      • Heavy

      Best Uses

      • Small Lawns

      Comments about Reel Mower:

      does a great job of mowing zoysia grass as long as the mowing schedule is consistent. If left too long it is hard to push the mower. Even then, the cut is clean and even.

          Comments about Reel Mower:

          While I can't fully get rid of my powered mower as the Fiskars misses some items, it is a great way to reduce my pollution. It is also nice to be able to just grab the mower and touch up the parts of the lawn that grow faster and need to be cut more often.
