Fiskars Staysharp Lawn Mower Review

For those people who have small lawns that need cutting, or those who just want to cut their lawns whilst at the same time being environmentally friendly, the Fiskars 17 Inch Staysharp Push Reel Lawn Mower is ideal. Because it is a manual push lawnmower, there is no need to worry about harmful exhaust fumes from a gasoline engine, nor is there a need to constantly charge a rechargeable battery, or find a plug socket. Plus, it has the additional advantage of being a lot quieter to operate than even a battery or electric powered lawn mower.


The Fiskars 17 Inch Staysharp Push Reel Lawn Mower is packed with features that offer much better grass cutting capabilities, and this includes the patented InertiaDrive Reel, which offers 50 percent more cutting power than other mowers of this type. There is also the StaySharp cutting feature, which helps to eliminate the need to constantly sharpen the blades by hand. There is also the option of adjusting the cut height from 1.5 to 3.5 inches, and there is a 17 inch cutting width. All of this combined helps to make the Fiskars 17 Inch Staysharp Push Reel Lawn Mower 30 percent easier to operate than other brands of manual push mower.

Pros and Cons

The Pros

The pros of this mower include needing less effort to propel the machine, thanks to the advanced design and features, which reduces the effort need to operate this mower by as much as 30 percent.

The thick and sharp cutting blades, twinned with the large diameter InertiaDrive Reel, means that this is a push mower that can deliver up to 50 percent more cutting power, for a greatly reduced cutting time.

The Cons

There is one or two minor niggles with this machine, the most obvious one being that there is no method or option to collect the grass cuttings, and so this will need to be done by hand once you have finished cutting. The second problem relates to the fact that it doesn’t always cut right up to the edge, so a separate edging tool will be needed to cut close to plant borders etc.

In Conclusion

Despite a couple of minor quibbles, the Fiskars 17 Inch Staysharp Push Reel Lawn Mower is certainly a step up from other types of manual push mower, and there are some distinct advantages to adding this mower to your shortlist.
