Review of Fiskars Momentum Reel Mower
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Jun 03, 2011
In searching for a lawn mower over the past few days, I visited our local big-box stores and compared the latest models. Wanting the most eco-friendly mower available, I was thinking push reel. But I wasn't sure that I could find one that could handle the significant grade along the sides of our home.
I ended up purchasing a German-engineered reel mower made by a company called Fiskars, which I'm happy to report does an outstanding job and is both comfortable and maneuverable. No gas, oil, battery, electrical cord, bagging, or hearing loss to worry about.
In mowing our property two times now with the Fiskars, I'd have to say that it probably isn't your best choice if you have a moderate grade to your lot. Going uphill, you feel its weight, which is good if you're looking to get a workout, and not so good if you prefer to avoid sweating.
If your lot is relatively flat, I highly recommend taking a look at the Fiskars:
One tip on maintaining a healthy lawn: if you wear metal baseball cleats, you'll naturally aerate your lawn with every cut. Metal cleats will also give you more grab, a useful feature if you have some hills or even mild slopes on your property. Here's a look at some metal baseball cleats that I can recommend at Amazon:
And here's a copy and paste of key features of the Fiskars reel mower from Amazon:
In Canada, you can get Fiskars' Momentum reel mower at any Canadian Tire store.
Description from Amazon.com:
The Momentum reel mower combines patent-pending technology with superior ergonomics to deliver best-in-class cutting performance without gasoline, oil, battery charging, the hassle of electrical cords or the noise created by other mowers.
It features InertiaDrive technology for twice the cutting power of standard reel mowers, StaySharp cutting system to eliminate the cost and inconvenience of annual blade sharpening, VersaCut height adjustment to provide a clean cut on any type of grass, forward reel position for ultra-close side edging and mess-free grass discharge and ergonomic design for easy adjustment and excellent maneuverability.
The combination of these technologies makes the Momentum reel mower 40% easier to push than other reel mowers, helping you get more done with less effort. The Momentum reel mower received Popular Mechanics 2010 Green Design Award and is recommended by the leading consumer research magazine over other reel mowers.
