The Healthy Solution
Reel mowers aren’t only good for the earth, they’re good for your lawn and community too. In addition to eliminating the need for gasoline or electricity, they also make clean, healthy cuts and are nearly silent.
60 Percent Easier to Push
The StaySharp Max includes a chain-drive design for optimized reel speed and heavier no-contact blades for improved inertia and less friction. These unique features make it 60 percent easier to push than other reel mowers.
More Cutting Power
InertiaDrive technology features a large-diameter cutting reel and thicker blades, resulting in double the cutting power. This added strength allows you to easily rip through weeds and tougher spots.
Long Lasting Sharpness
Unlike traditional reel mowers, the precision-ground blades and stationary reel of the StaySharp Cutting System never make contact, which dramatically extends sharpness and makes mowing easier.
Inset wheels and blades that extend across the full width of the mower help you to avoid the frustration of missed strips and tricky edges next to sidewalks, fences and foundations.
Tailored To You
The StaySharp Max can be easily tailored to your lawn and preferences. Adjust its grass cut height from 1-4 inch, shift the handle height for comfort and change the direction of grass clippings in an instant.

The StaySharp Max Reel Mower features advanced technology that delivers best-in-class cutting performance – no gas, oil, charging or cords required.

In addition, a reversible grass chute can be positioned to direct clippings forward, away from your feet, or backward and downward, making it easier to mow tough patches while limiting messiness. The StaySharp Max Reel Mower is ideal for all grass types, even tough southern varieties like St. Augustine, Zoysia, Bahia and Bermuda.

Gas or electric mowers do not cut as cleanly, they leave the tips of the grass with more of a "chewed" look. The tips dry out faster, and that new-mown look disappears.
This Fiskars reel mower is designed to make a very fine cut. In that aspect, it is the best mower I have used.
The Fiskars mower does not maneuver as well in corners as some, but that is a minor issue for me. My weed eater makes quick work of those areas.
If you've never used a reel mower before, you will find that it cuts only in forward motion, not when pulling back.
However, a reel mower is easier to push than a gas mower, especially if you cut your grass every week or so.
More frequent mowing makes for a much easier lawn task as well.
If you wait much longer than that, mowing the lawn becomes more and more of a chore.
Another problem with gas or electric mowers is that they "beat" the grass, whereas this Fiskars mower cuts like a scissors, leaving a fresh clean cut.
An important aspect that makes the Fiskars mower superior to other reel mowers is that it stays level, especially over uneven patches. The blades remain in constant contact with the grass, rather than "rocking" as they pass over thicker areas, leaving some patches higher or lower than others.
With the older styles of reel mowers, you can whirl around at a 180 degree angle, whereas with this model, you have to jockey it around a bit. The quality of the cut with the Fiskars mower makes the minor inconvenience worth the effort, however.
The more I use this Fiskars mower, the more I like it.
Easy to put together - way less expensive to own - little to no upkeep - PEACEFUL: I hate loud noise, so I always enjoyed gardening but HATED to mow and edge. Now I can enjoy the outdoors without inhaling fumes and screaming at the top of my lungs to get my daughters attention - for a non powered push mower, it was easy to mow. It was as they sold it I believe - looks like the grass is just shorter as opposed to being "mowed" so if you don't follow a pattern it's not really a big deal, so you could just clip those odd sections that grow faster than the rest of the yard. Small footprint and easier to drag backwards and put away than a gas mower. No problem going through thick grassy weeds at proper height. Safer to mow with kids around as you can hear everything and it isn't going to throw projectile sticks and rocks and put carbon monoxide and fumes in their faces.
CONS: My only stand alone cons right now are 1) that it doesn't cut pulling it backwards. This makes cutting in a small yard with lots of stuff to mow around much more tedious. 2) It is a little hard to turn in thick grass, so try to get your turning points to be on the sidewalk when you plan your attack.2) It also won't get those tall purple dandelion stems most of the time, so you need to kill off the weeds or be prepared to have to cut them. Most complaints about it in other reviews, I feel, are about their expectations vs a gas powered mower . I will give those CONS: 1) It is harder to push - well um yeah.. it's a PUSH reel mower and not self propelled. If you are going from a NON self propelled mower, it won't be that big of a deal or much different. I look at this as a way to get a work out in and enjoy being outside and expected this. It really does suck to push up a hill, so you will need to have very few of those parts that you can't go side to side on the hill unless you welcome the workout. If your grass is tall and thick, you will need to mow it at 4" and then go back over it and then keep up with it after that. 2) You need to get ANY sticks that aren't small and totally flat... they will jam it.
I just put it together last night in my living room (do that with a gas one!) and was excited to roll it out this morning. I did have to file off a couple of burrs with a metal file as it suggested, but it would have probably worked fine as it was. It was pretty simple to put together, but the handle is different so it took me a little messing with it and playing with it to realize it is supposed to sit really low. It won't look right to you if you expect it to sit like a normal mower handle, so as long as you put it on with the hook facing down, it is right. There is what they call float room (the space between bottom and the storage position) which is actually where you will actually hold it. The measure on if the height is right is when you test to see if you can easily push DOWN on the handle without stooping or bending and the front end easily comes up to turn you are good to go. I am 5'4" and I have to put it on the highest setting of 4. This is VERY important to how hard or easy this is.
Be sure that you 1)pick up any and every bit of debris in your yard as momentum is what moves this thing and stopping and starting makes you lose cut power and makes it harder 2)Plan your attack and when possible make turns on the concrete because it isn't the easiest to turn in thick or wettish grass and also where you can have the longest open stretch of momentum because it is a breeze when it is going - it is the stopping and starting that is tough.
I think I covered everything else at the top. Good luck on your journey with the mower... I will post pictures and update as I use it.
