Editorial Review
Healthy exercise, quiet operation, and a healthier, more attractive lawn, that's what the Luxus 38 Push Reel Mower from Brill has to offer. Perfect for mowing lawns with less than 7,500 square feet, the Luxus 38 weighs just over 16 pounds, making it the lightest, quietest and easiest-to-push hand mower in its class. Ultra-sharp, welded, and flame-hardened blades offer a 15-inch cutting width and won't need sharpening for eight years (on average).

For those who value horticulture above horsepower, the Luxus Push Reel grass cutter is the best choice for a well kept lawn. The vacuum action and dull blades of standard rotary mowers tend to leave behind brown-tops and disturb the natural, interwoven growing pattern that helps grass retain water and crowd out weeds. But the Luxus's non-contact, non-vacuum cutting system produces a beautiful, scissor-cut and rolled look without jeopardizing the roots, so you get ultra-green, super healthy, plush results, every time.

More great features: The cut-height adjusts from .5- to 1.8-inches for a wide variety of mowing applications. An extra rigid handle means optimal power and control. A large metal top-cover protects overhanging flowers and shrubs as the Luxus passes by. Best of all, the ball-bearing-mounted reel spins smoothly with virtually no friction to fight against, so there's even less resistance than gas powered push mowers. The Luxus assembles easily in about five minutes and is backed by a two-year, manufacturer warranty. --Brian Olson

Here is what people are saying about the Brill 78370 Luxus 38 Push Reel Mower
5 Star Rating  "Great mower" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Wayne, NJ United States
I put this together in a few minutes with a 1 year old strapped to my back. I was very impressed with the mechanism-it seems that it would be impossible to hurt someone with it, with the back roller and front guard. My 13 year old was able to carry it up and down our steep hill to our flat yard. Easy to manuever, easily adjusted blades (golf course lengths easily done), no more trips to the gas station.
 
1 Star Rating  "Seems to be a great product! But lousy shipping!! 2x!!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
I wanted this item! And I wish Amazon can do better packaging and listen to the customer. The first shipment has a cracked wheel, amazon acknowledged the warning, and was asked to do better packaging. The 2nd shippment was no improvement on packaging; the wheel broke off! So I decided to refund it... Maybe it's not for me :) I'll pick different one up locally....
 
5 Star Rating  "Brill/Sunlawn push mowers are the best!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
This lawn mower is AMAZING! My husband is a merchant marine with the US Coast Guard and is away for months at a time, leaving me with the task of lawn mowing. This is way better than our noisy old gas guzzler. Without the combustion motor, it is light and easy to push, doesnt require gas (which is at an all time high price right now), and doesnt let off emissions. The scissor like blades cut the grass into such small pieces that I dont use a catcher. Leaving the clippings behind is the best because they go back into the soil, producing organic fertilizer! I've been getting them and giving them as gifts to all my friends and family from sunlawn.com.

I've owned a Scotts push reel mower for 2 years now and have seen the potential problems with push mowers. The difficulty with the Scotts is that it doesn't cut all of the grass consistantly and you end up going back over the same areas again. I've even tried the sharpening kit and various positioning the blade against the back edge and haven't seemed to get it exactly right. I have even picked up a yard sale push reel mower that is really old and rusty and it worked better but was heavy.
I saw the Brill Lexus 38 go on sale at Amazon for $149 and just had to try it. It cuts like no other. All of the grass gets cut and it is so light. Don't worry about the lack of 4 1/2" of cutting width because it is more than made up in the precision of the cut it makes.

I've used this wonderful little mower on my scraggly lawn three times now, and I have praise and some concerns. You might consider these either way...

1. The plastic wheels are very light weight and cause the whole mower to skip over thick grass or debris. Bad thing? Well, it acts somewhat as a self-protection feature, as it helps keep the debris from binding and bending the cutting edge. You have some control over slippage by a more downward push angle on the handle.

2. The cutting width is less than a regular mower. Bad thing? Well, taking a lesser bite means you'll bog down less often on thick grass. When you do hit a thick patch, just roll over the same spot a few times and you're through. And I haven't figured it out yet, but it's true - I get through my lawn in 2/3 the time as with my new power mower last season (which I damaged irreparably by running over a hidden lawn umbrella pipe). And the feel, sound and sight of this thing working is just buttery. But you will have to trim more (for those into that sort of thing), as it doesn't cut close to edges.

Now some definitely BAD THINGS. The actual manual says two things that contradict the claims made by Amazon/Sunlawn:

3. The manual says the cutting system can NOT be sharpened. The edge that the rotary blades cut against is simply the edge of the the sheet metal housing of the unit. Manual says to replace the entire assembly, contradicting sales claims. And catching debris that doesn't cause the entire unit to slide on the plastic wheels could put a bend in the housing's cutting edge that would not be a good thing at all, since there's no blade edge to replace.

4. The manual says there is NO warranty unless the unit is purchased in the European Union. If it's not true for these units, I shouldn't have a user manual that explicitly tells me so, and no other documentation that says differently.

Still, I'm not giving it up. It's an entirely refreshing change in summer lifestyle, and a very nice unit (and with the handle popped off, it fits on the passenger floor of my car with lots of room to spare). And if I need to buy another one every couple years (or one of the hopefully increasing number of competing units), I have to say that I'm likely to do that - though I have to remember that seasonal price drop.
