Fiskars Lawn Mowers

fiskarsThe first manual reel lawn mowers were first designed over a century ago form cast iron, and they were big, bulky machines that were not easy to operate. Fast forward a hundred years later, and Fiskars is a company that embodies the ethos of the original manual reel mowers but has put a decidedly modern spin on them. Fiskars lawn mowers are lightweight and compact, but have the technology necessary to give your lawn even, professional looking cuts every time.

That’s because Fiskars lawn mowers have durable parts that do not get worn down over time and need sharpening less often. And they are designed to have the kind of extra wide cutting reels that can help you finish the job more quickly. You get all of the benefits of a beautifully cut lawn without having to rely on a power source when you use a Fiskars lawn mower, too. That is not only better for the environment, but better for your wallet, too: you’ll never spend a dime on running your mower ever again.

1. Fiskars Lawn Mower Highlights

1a. Zero Emissions

If you are as concerned about the state of the environment as I am, you already understand the need for reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and lowering the amount of pollution we are putting into the atmosphere. If pollution is in fact causing global climate change, then without making some serious changes to our habits, we may soon have a hard time keeping lawns at all, let alone mowing them.

That’s why Fiskars believes in making quality reel lawn mowers that are the only completely emissions free ones on the market. With a Fiskars lawn mower, you are getting all of the cutting power you would with a lawn mower that ran on gas or electric, but without using a single ounce of carbon-based power. Fiskars lawn mowers run on human power alone, so they are much better for the environment, but still able to deliver great looking cuts.

1b. Extra Wide

One of the features that makes Fiskars lawn mowers some of the best manual reel mowers is the fact that their cutting reels are incredibly wide. It isn’t easy to find manual reel mowers that have the ability to deliver cuts that are as wide as a lot of electric or even gas powered lawn mowers. But with Fiskars, that feature is pretty much standard. Their lawn mowers have cutting reels that are eighteen inches wide or more.

That is the kind of width that you need to be able to finish cutting your lawn in fewer passes and less time. With an eighteen or twenty inch wide cutting reel, you can finish a moderately sized lawn in less than twenty minutes – easily. And the less time you have to spend on lawn care chores, the more of your weekend will be free for you to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

1c. Durable Parts

Because a manual reel mower is doing all of the work of cutting your lawn under your own power, you want to be sure that it is made of the kind of durable parts that can deal with tough grasses and dense patches without getting worn down easily. You do not want to wind up struggling to push your manual reel mower through tougher parts of the lawn while the blade is dull. You want that blade to stay sharp for the long term.

That is why Fiskars lawn mowers have blades that are made of tough heat-treated steel. This allows them to last longer without needing to be sharpened, and it allows you to rely on them to continually provide high-quality cuts year after year. Besides that, the entire lawn mower is made of tough materials, so you will be able to count on it for a long time.
