This video is entitled FAQ Brill Razorcut vs Luxus Push Reel Mowers. So what do you suppose is the difference?
Start out by studying the two mowers shown by Lars in the video. They certainly do look totally different to one another. The shape is different. The mower section looks completely different. The handles are a totally different shape. But why are we bothering to compare these two lawn mowers if they are so obviously different?
Quite simply, as Lars explains, the Brill Luxus on the left is a discontinued mower. But the Raxorcut Push Reel Mower on the right is still being made. The thing is that the Razorcut is actually the new version of the Luxus. Both mowers are 38 models – which means they have a 38 cm or 15″ cutting width – and both have exactly the same blade system, so both mowers produce a very similar cut.
The reason the mower section looks so different is that it has an extra “spoiler” piece on the back. Lars explains that this results in the cut grass being knocked back onto the ground more effectively.
The handle looks a lot stronger too, and Lars confirms this, saying that it is “a lot stiffer.”
The other major change is that the tires have a much better tread. You can see this immediately when you see the two wheels together. The new wheels are rounder and slightly more substantial, which Lars says results in better traction in the grass.
So if you liked the Brill Razorcut 38, you’re going to just love the Luxus version. Guaranteed.
