Anybody out there using reel mowers? I need one for my new lawn. The property is 6,000 square foot with most of it covered by grass. I haven't used reel mowers for many years and the choices are overwhelming. I'm leaning toward Scotts classic 20", mainly because its cheap and it cuts up to 3" high, which would make it easier to mow if I let the grass grow a bit too long now and then. However, the weight weenie in me is tempted to try the the Brill Razorcut 38. Its lighter, narrower and apparently only needs sharpened every 10 years or so. Plus, my wife and kids may have an easier time with it. However, I'm having a hard time believing that a 17 pound lawnmower is going to last very long.
Anybody used either of these or any other models. I'm interested in any feedback you have about them.
