Brill Luxus 38 manual reel mower

by lars on February 1, 2010

This is one of the lightest, most reliable reel mowers Brill made, and although it’s been discontinued, there are still some available on store shelves. It’s German engineered, which means it not only works well, but it looks sleek and cool too. It works very well on fine, feathery lawns that are typically found in Northern latitudes. This mower is not recommended for St. Augustine, Zoysia, or Bermuda Grass (these grasses are commonly found in the Southern US).

This mower is very well engineered, with precision machining and attention to detail. The mowing area is much smaller than other models, which means that it takes less effort to push but can take longer to mow with. 15.2 inches is also small enough to fit into tight spots where other mowers wont fit (ie; between trees or along narrow lanes of grass).
