Hello. We just purchased a Brill 38 mower and wanted to tell you how pleased we are with it. It is a pleasure to use. Thank you for making such a quality item. It is too bad that the ease of use and quality of cut is not common knowledge. While using it I have had neighbours stop and give it a try, they are quite impressed. Thanks again -Dale Dixon

The Brill Just Plows Through the Yard
After much researching and thinking I decided to order a brill mower from your website. I was hesitant because my lawn is the perfect example of what not to mow with a reel mower. I previously had a cheap reel mower that worked well until the plastic parts wore. I decided to take the plunge and spend the money on the brill razor cut 38. Itís nothing short of amazing even in my stick ridden bumpy lawn. It took me a few tries to get the cutting bar adjusted but once I did the brill just plows through the yard and leaves it looking healthy and natural and ready to be enjoyed...
Thank you.....Thank you.....Thank you!!
I found your website a week or so ago while looking for the best reel mower. Once I saw the Brill Razorcut 38 I knew it was for me. I ordered it on Saturday, and it arrived on Tuesday. I raced home and put it together and was outside cutting the grass in no time. In no time, the whole neighborhood was in my yard watching me cut the grass. I felt like a new father. Everyone wanted to see, touch, try my new baby. It performed even better than described on your web site. Easy to push, lightweight, perfect cut, and it took me less time to cut the grass than with my old polluting mower. I am 150% happy with my new Razorcut. I hope to increase your sales and have my neighbors converted before long!!! Thanks again... -Scott Podolan
I must confirm that this mower is fabulous
Hello David, I must confirm that this mower is fabulous, even I after three disc surgeries can push it, the result is a clean cut, much better than with the usual mowers. You can read I am pretty enthusiastic about, and you can use this as an honest recommendation for this product. It is easy to use and to clean, I use a small broom and my hands to remove left grass. I would like to order a grass catche...thanks from a very satisfied customer. My friends are now interested in those mowers. Sincerely... -Barbara
I've had one for years, and the things that every site fails to mention are:
- IT'S EASIER TO PUSH THAN A GAS-POWERED MOWER! I use it on a severely sloped lawn on a lake shore and I push it straight uphill. So, your calorie chart is kind of incorrect (unfortunately, one burns more calories with the heavy, smelly gas mowers). My 8-year-old son pushes it (I remove the upper section of the handle assembly on mine, since the lower section is a perfect height for someone who is 4'2".) Did I mention it''s really safe? I wouldn't let Harry go near a gas mower until he was at least 12.
- IT'S FASTER THAN A GAS-POWERED MOWER. Even though you "double pass" (1/2 overlap to catch each blade from both directions) you are WALKING MORE THAN TWICE AS FAST! In fact, the faster you walk, the better it cuts. I'd gladly race a gas mower (even a ride-on up to about 36" cutting width), if everyone had to do the edging, too. Especially on a sloped lot.
- Contact-free cutting means IT'S UNBELIEVABLY EASIER THAN "OLD" REEL MOWERS. The non-Brill mowers (traditional blade contact reels) are ridiculously hard to push. Especially the ill-adjusted ones collecting dust in hardware stores nationwide. The real "calorie burner" winners would be these monsters. Seriously, this is the biggest problem. When I talk with friends, they just don't believe me and think I'm some kind of enviro-martyr. While I like the environmental benefit, I'm more lazy than saintly.
- THE CUT IS BETTER - more even, no scalping, etc. Did I mention the lake shore? Not exactly a croquet lawn here. Rotary mowers even as narrow as 24" regularly take a huge chunk of dirt, along with leaving 2" of grass in other places. Reel mowers CAN'T SCALP. They follow the contours. Ever notice that golf courses (also not known for their even terrain) DON'T USE ROTARY MOWERS? Why? Because their job is super-high quality, even cutting. They are conditioning a sports surface. It's not fair to have 3" rough in the middle of a fairway. Especially important on greens.
I'm happy to have this used in your marketing materials, but PLEASE! make the mowers sound less like taking your medicine! The only disadvantage is you can't wait 2 weeks and then hack through 2 inches of growth at one go. But that isn't good for your lawn, anyway.
I have used US reel mowers for years. This Brill mower beats them all, hands down. Thank you for importing it. -James B.
I received my Brill push mower yesterday. I am mechanically challenged and I put this thing together in 10 minutes. I am proud to tell you that for the first time in my 53 years I cut my own grass. My yard looks wonderful, I got a good workout, and the mower was easy to push. I am ridiculously pleased with myself and your pro duct. I have also ordered a Tumbleweed composter. Thank you. I am saving more on yard maintenance thank the total cost of the mower. All of my friends want to come over and try out my mower. Expect an influx of orders from Nashville Tn. Thanks a million! -Elaine
"Late night mowing...a simple pleasure"
Last night I got home late. It was after 10pm when I found my new people powered lawnmower on the porch. As my wife got ready for bed I quickly put it together, turned on the outside lights and mowed my yard! Twenty five minutes later I was done and I felt really really good. It was a very simple pleasure that I hadn't enjoyed in over 4 years. Since graduating college and joining the service I've been stationed overseas. I've just been stationed in Richmond Virginia where we have bought our first house and now I've mowed my own yard! ...and the neighbors had no idea. This mower is a solid and very efficient piece of equipment. It was a joy to use and I look forward to the grass growing again so I can back out there. Thank you....

After using our magnificent battery powered reel mower for over a year, I want you to know we love it and our lawn looks fantastic, thanks to my wonderful bride. We tell everyone of our friends around the country of PPM and how great you are to do business with. You are the best and we wish you many years of success...-Paul and Judy Reed, Texas
"Now I can play with my children while I mow. We can talk, race, and my 2 year old helps push. And I can make frequent stops (to intervene in those fights that I can now hear!) without the "hassle of restarting". There are lots of other benefits, but turning mowing from a dreaded noisy activity I rush through into play time with my children has added quality time to our lives. ...And since my Brill was a gift, this has all been an unexpected discovery for us." ...-Cheryl, Maryland
"There are lots of other benefits, but turning mowing from a dreaded noisy activity I rush through into play time with my children has added real quality time to our lives."
"The first impression is that the push mower is so light, how could it do the job of a power mower? But it does. The precision of the blades, the ease of pushing it, and the resulting cut are really amazing! Not to mention the benefit to our environment." ...-Dale
"My mother considers her new Brill mower one of the best Mother's Day gifts she has ever received. I am not what you would call a "handy" kind of a person. But I had that lawn mower put together in 5 minutes flat! Thank you so very much for such a wonderful machine."...-Sue
I LOVE MY NEW MOWER! I bought the Luxus 38. It is easier to push than my
gas machine!! I was worried because our ground is uneven, but I set it on 40
and I have NO problem!! It was so quick to do the lawn. I will probably mow
it more often! Thanks for whoever I talked to about this one
vs the smaller machine, but this is so easy! When I picked it up at the
post office, the guy said he saw it and thought it was a great idea because
of the gas prices. I hadn't thought of that. I was just tired of trying to
start my gas machine!! I thought of electric, but this is so easy. Thank
"I have about fifteen acres, most of which I cut with a ride-on mower. But for smaller areas around the house and garden, and along the driveway, the Brill Luxus is much faster than a power mower. It's also light and incredibly maneuverable. I never thought that cutting the lawn could be such an enjoyable, relaxing experience. The Brill is awesome!" ...-Randy
"I normally would not email about a product I've purchased, unless there was a problem. But wanted to let you know that I was very satisfied with my Brill mower. I did however, disregard the comment about using a powered mower for the first mowing if lawn had been left for a period of time and paid the price with several blisters. I was ready to send the mower back but decided to give it a couple of more runs (since I had ignored the advice re overgrown lawns) and was shocked at how easy it became to mow and how enjoyable. I am a "morning person" and have my lawn mowed before my neighbors are rising since the mower is absolutely quiet. I love the cool morning air and chirping birds and peace and quiet. I also love the convenience of no oil, gas, and minimal maintainence. At first my neighbors teased me but now I get lot's of questions re the mower. My lawn looked so good in comparison to my neighbors both during the season but especially this spring after the snow thawed, that I've also decided to go "totally green" using only organic lawn and garden products. Partially because I believe it's better for the environment but also because I believe it makes for a healthier lawn. Thanks for this product." ...-Jan
"I love the convenience of the Brill. I just grab it out of the shed and it's ready to go. I love the precision it cuts with. I love the exercise I get from using it. Best of all, I love the fact that it always works and is never out of gas." ...-Sarah
"Unbelievably easy to use. I was amazed at how lightweight the mower was, making it a breeze for regular grass cuts even in narrow and hilly areas of my lawn. With no fuel, noise or maintenance the mower is ideal for any yard. The unit is not only economical but takes up little storage space." ...-Lani
"Just wanted to let you know that this push mower has been fully assembled and put into operation. I love it! It is so quiet and I especially like the fact that it is non-polluting. I find it easy to push even without the power!"...-Ruth Ann
"Thanks for your call yesterday. It's amazing how well this reel mower works. And I really appreciated the personal attention and expertise." Thanks so much!" ...-Michael
