The Brill Razorcut 38 is a premium, German engineered reel lawnmower that is perfect for small to medium sized yards. The lawnmower features a cylinder with hardened steel cutting blades, with the spindle mounted on sealed ball bearings so that it spins more easily. Unlike many other reel mowers, the Brill blades use a contact free cutting technology, preventing metal on metal contact and significantly increasing blade life. The silent cut design means that you can hear the environment around you when you mow and not disturb others with engine noise. A top cover protects your flowers and shrubs from the blades, and the extended spoiler in the back helps keep grass clippings from landing on your shoes when you cut the grass. The cutting height is infinitely adjustable from 14 to 45 millimeters (.7 inches to 1.8 inches), with a measuring scale on both sides of the mower. The Razorcut 38 features 5 blades, which is the best number for the balance between ease of pushing and grass cutting ability. Metal components of the Razorcut have a dry powder coat, which resists chipping, scratching and rust. The cutting width is 15.2 inches and the wheels are 8 inch. The Brill Razorcut 38 weighs just 17 pounds, which makes it very easy to pick up, and easy to push through the grass. Other competing reel mowers weigh more than 50 pounds! The Razorcut 38 comes fully assembled, except for the handle. The handle goes together in minutes and snaps onto the mower, with no tools required.The Brill Razorcut 38 works on most types of grass, but is not recommended for St. Augustine, Zoysia or Bermuda. The Razorcut 38 has a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.
