The Fiskars Momentum mower's wide forward-position reel, unique chain drive system and contoured handle combine to create a signature look that is both stylish and functional.
The advanced technologies of the Fiskars Momentum mower (StaySharp cutting system, InertiaDrive technology, and VersaCut design) combine to reduce push force by 30% in long grass.
Direct comparisons between the Fiskars Momentum mower and a top-selling manual reel mower were made with new mowers adjusted according to manufacturers specifications to cut 4" and taller Fescue, Ryegrass, & Bluegrass.
The Momentum mower's four-wheel chassis eliminates the "nose-diving" experienced by other reel mowers when cutting in extreme conditions ensuring that a level cut is always maintained.

The World's Most Advanced Reel Mower.
The Fiskars Momentum uses patent pending technology and superior design to create a truly modern reel mower. Using a reel mower is the best thing you can do for your lawn and for the environment, so Fiskar Momentum makes it easier than ever to get all of the benefits of reel mowing.
Fiskars Solves Traditional Reel Mowers Problems
The blades on most reel mowers dull quickly and require annual sharpening to maintain peak performance: The StaySharp cutting system cuts grass without the blades touching - greatly reducing blade wear. Long lasting performance is maintained without the cost and inconvenience of annual blade sharpening.
Reel mowers lack the cutting power necessary to handle small twigs, weeds, or dense grass: InertiaDrive technology combines a large diameter cutting reel and heavy blades to store energy (like a flywheel) until a burst of extra cutting power is needed. Twice the energy is available to power through tough spots without jamming.
Reel mowers don't edge well and leave 3" wide no-cut zones under each wheel: Patent pending VersaCut design utilizes inset wheels and blades that extend across the entire width of the mower to edge three times closer than other reel mowers and completely eliminate uncut strips from under the wheels.
The range of cut & maximum cut height on most reel mowers are not suitable for all mowing habits & grass types: The Fiskars Momentum delivers the greatest cut range of any reel mower – with cut height settings from 1" to 4". The 4" maximum cut height is vital when you miss a week of mowing.

Fiskars Momentum: The Eco-Friendly Push Reel Lawn Mower
What makes the Momentum mower special?
What is it? Fiskars patent pending InertiaDrive technology combines a large diameter cutting reel, heavy cutting reel blades, and a powerful chain drive to deliver superior cutting power.
How is it different? Standard reel mowers use small diameter cutting reels with thin blades. These reels and mowers lack cutting power and, thus, frequently jam when cutting small twigs, weeds, or dense grass. When this happens the cutting reel seizes, completely stopping the mower. The obstruction must be removed before mowing can resume.
Why is it important? Fiskars patent pending, InertiaDrive technology uses the mower's large diameter cutting reel and heavy blades to store energy (like a flywheel) until a burst of extra cutting power is needed. When a tough spot is encountered, the InertiaDrive technology delivers twice the energy to power through it without jamming - providing a superior cut without interruption.
StaySharp Cutting System, Fiskars Exclusive
What is it? Fiskars exclusive StaySharp cutting system uses precision ground hardened steel blades engineered to efficiently cut grass without actually touching. To do this, the cutting reel and stationary blade are separated by about 0.003 inches – less than the thickness of a blade of grass.
How is it different? Standard reel mowers rely on contact between the cutting reel and stationary blade for cutting. The steel on steel contact that is produced creates friction & causes blade wear. As a result, the blades on standard reel mowers dull quickly and require annual sharpening to prevent cutting performance degradation.
Why is it important? Since Fiskars StaySharp cutting system cuts grass without the blades touching, friction and blade wear are greatly reduced. As a result, long lasting performance is maintained without the cost and inconvenience of annual blade sharpening.
VersaCut Design, Patent Pending
What is it? Fiskars patent pending VersaCut design extends the cutting blades across the entire width of the mower and uses a long wheel base to optimize blade positioning.
How is it different? Other reel mowers place the cutting reel between the two large drive wheels. This design creates 3" wide no-cut zone under each wheel, making close edging impossible. It also requires undesirable blade positioning, limiting both the maximum cut height and range of cut height adjustment possible.
Why is it important? Fiskars patent pending, VersaCut design enables versatile cutting for all types of lawns and mowing habits. Inset wheels and blades that extend all the way across the mower completely eliminate uncut strips from under the wheels, allowing three times closer edging than other reel mowers. A long wheel base allows for superior blade positioning, delivering the greatest cut range of any reel mower – with cut height settings from 1" to 4". The 4" maximum cut height is vital when you miss a week of mowing.
Fiskars Ergonomics, Fiskars Exclusive
What is it? The Fiskars Momentum reel mower incorporates a number of best in class ergonomic and convenience features to enhance the user's mowing experience.
How is it different? Standard reel mowers typically use flimsy small diameter two-dimensional loop handles, require cumbersome two-point cut height adjustment, and discharge grass clippings backward toward the user's feet.
Why is it important? The Fiskars Momentum mower features an ergonomic height adjustable handle with a padded grip, a quick and easy one-touch cut height adjustment system and a forward throw grass discharge chute for mess-free operation.
Why Reel Mowers are Best
Reel mowers are good for your lawn.
Reel mowers promote greener, healthier lawns by cutting each blade of grass cleanly with a scissors-like action. This minimizes moisture loss and exposure to disease.
Gas and electric rotary mowers, on the other hand, stress the grass by cutting with a tearing action that can leave a jagged tip, making grass susceptible to drying and disease.
Reel mowers also eliminate accidental damage caused by gasoline spills or dragging extension cords.
Reel mowers are good for your health.
Reel mowers let you cut your grass without exposure to noxious exhaust gases, loud noises, uncomfortable vibrations or the hazards of power-driven rotary blades – including not just serious injury, but also damage caused by thrown rocks.
Reel mowers also eliminate the risks associated with storing and handling the gasoline and oil required by gas mowers and with mowing around the extension cords required by electric mowers.
Reel mowers are good for the environment.
Reel mowers are the most earth-friendly way to cut your grass.
Gas mowers produce dirty exhaust that pollutes the air.
Gas mowers also consume gasoline and create spills during fueling.
Electric and battery mowers, while more earth-friendly than gas mowers, still result in air pollution – not in your backyard, but at the power plants that produce the electricity on which the mowers run.
Reel mowers are good for your budget.
Reel mowers cost nothing to operate. There is no gasoline, oil, electricity, spark plugs, or air filters to purchase.
Reel mowers also require far less maintenance than gas and electric mowers.
