This Fiskars Momentum Reel Mower adds some smarts to the good ol’ dependable push-powered reel mower. For starters they’ve added a large diameter, heavy-bladed cutting reel which acts as a flywheel, storing rotational momentum (aka power) and providing extra cutting force to chop through long grass or small twigs.
They’ve also tweaked the drive system making it easier to push, made the cut height-adjustable and improved the cutting up against edges. Sounds great if you like exercise with your lawn care. Priced at US$249.99 from Fiskars.
Combines a large diameter cutting reel and heavy blades to store energy (like a flywheel) until a burst of extra cutting power is needed.
2X More Cutting Power: Delivers twice the energy to power through small twigs, weeds, or dense grass that would jam other reel mowers.
30% Easier to Push: Advanced technologies reduce cutting system friction, provide optimal blade positioning and deliver extra cutting power to reduce push force by 30% in long grass.
