Husqvarna 540 Push Reel Mower

by lars on February 2, 2010

The Husqvarna 540 is one of the quietest reel mowers available. It is easy to use and lightweight, but the cutting width is a bit small compared to other mowers.

The 16 inch cutting area cuts about 200 square inches at a time. Compared to a 20 inch mower, this manual mower will take about 40% longer to mow a yard. On the other hand, the small cutting area can be a strength for thick grass because it will be easier to push.

Technical details:

  • Cutting Width: 16 inch
  • Weight: 20 lbs
  • Wheel diameter: 8 inches
  • Minimum cutting height: 0.5 inch
  • Maximum cutting height: 1.5 inch
  • Cutting height settings: 0.25 inch increments
  • Manufacturer’s warranty: 2 years
  • Handle: Folding design, soft grip
  • Ball bearing wheels: Yes
  • Manufactured in: Sweden
  • MSRP: $159.95
  • Special Notes: An optional collector can be attached to the back to collect lawn clippings (or they can be left on the yard to naturally decompose and fertilize the grass).

    Check out the Fiskars 6201… lots of incredible reviews, and some innovative engineering to make it easier to use, change heights and get close to mulch beds. No mower is “perfect”, but the Fiskars might be worth my try…
