The Brill Razorcut 33 is a premium, German engineered reel lawnmower that is perfect for small to medium sized yards. The lawnmower features a cylinder with hardened steel cutting blades, with the spindle mounted on sealed ball bearings so that it spins more easily. Unlike many other reel mowers, the Brill blades use a contact free cutting technology, preventing metal on metal contact and significantly increasing blade life. The "silent cut" design means that you can hear the environment around you when you mow and not disturb others with engine noise. A top cover protects your flowers and shrubs from the blades, and the extended spoiler in the back helps keep grass clippings from landing on your shoes when you cut the grass. The cutting height is infinitely adjustable from 14 to 45 millimeters (.7 inches to 1.8 inches), with a measuring scale on both sides of the mower. The Razorcut 33 features 5 blades, which is the best number for the balance between ease of pushing and grass cutting ability. Metal components of the Razorcut have a dry powder coat, which resists chipping, scratching and rust. The cutting width is 13 inches and the wheels are 8 inch. The Brill Razorcut 33 weighs just 17 pounds, which makes it very easy to pick up, and easy to push through the grass. Other competing reel mowers weigh more than 50 pounds! The Razorcut 33 comes fully assembled, except for the handle. The handle goes together in minutes and snaps onto the mower, with no tools required. The Brill Razorcut 33 works on most types of grass, but is not recommended for St. Augustine, Zoysia or Bermuda. The Razorcut 33 has a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.

The other drawback is that the maximum mowing height is less than 1.5 inches. For a green lawn here in Southern California, it's best to have the grass longer for it to be healthy. After two attempts at making this mower work for us, we are sending it back. Hopefully, the Fiskar mower we ordered will do a better job.
For those who have a golf course type lawn (even, well-manicured) this mower will work probably work like a charm.
Update 5/17/11: Our new Fiskar push mower is perfect for our needs! Amazon got it to us quickly, and refunded us for the Brill mower we returned. We are happy customers.
I was concerned that a reel mover would be too hard to push so I reasearched mainly for lightweight and found the Brill. This one is so light a child could push this thing. My vacumm cleaner is harder to push than this is. I LOVED IT!!! I have had it for a month and have cut the grass four times with it including in a light rain. It is incredibly easy to push and cuts well. You can cut early in the morning when the grass still it slighty wet from the dew (not too early when it is too wet) before it reaches 90 degrees. You will not wake the neighbors because it is very quite.
You have to be willing to cut the lawn every 5 days but it is so easy that it is not a chore. Here, in Florida, during the summer, when it is both rainy and hot, you can literally see the grass grow so even every 7 days is not enough. Warning: it cannot cut St. Augustine. The neighbor's lawn is St. Augustine and it cannot cut that - it is too thick and heavy. I could only push it for inches over their lawn. If you have St. Augustine will need another type of reel mower that is much heavier to cut those types of thick grasses My lawn is centipede and it cuts that well. In retrospect, would probably buy the 38 instead of the 33 because the two extra pounds would still be light enough to push, but I love it. This mower paid for itself in one month!
I've used two reel mowers in the past. One, a Sears Craftsman behemoth that weighed a ton. It was one of a kind because it had height adjustments. It got the job done but was taxing (and that was a very small yard too, but the mower had to be carried a greater distance, and I was much younger ; The next reel mower I used was of a Garden variety, white in color and came with the house I rented. That mower was heavy and I had to cut the grass in several passes. The Garden mower was loud and I wondered how long it'd been part of the house, maybe the blades needed adjustment or filing.
This mower by contrast is light weight, easily maneuverable and it cuts the grass on the first pass. That's pretty good since I have a potpourri of different grasses growing. I was also hoping the blade would need little maintenance over time, however that will only be determined with time.
With the exception of the noise, I'm satisfied with this mower. The Brill is mostly made of plastic and I don't mind that because compared to what I hauled around the yard to cut the grass with, this is much better. I also note that it will probably have less rust with time. I was seriously considering the Helix EcoMower and eventually sided with the Brill, mainly because of the weight.
If when I use the mower for the second time I deem it to be still too loud I may return it and request another. Otherwise, I'm satisfied with the quality, performance and love especially the lightness of the mower. I will heed the opinion of the other reviewers and make sure the nuts and bolts are tight upon each use (thanks for the advise!).
