Mantis Introduces New Reel Mowers

Lawn care professionals alike are rediscovering the reel mower, long admired for its outstanding quality of cut. This spring Mantis will introduce two new reel mowers; a manually-operated “push” mower and a battery-powered cordless mower. Mantis reel mowers, with their five-blade contact-free reel design, yield the sheared cut preferred by lawn care professionals for a greener, healthier lawn.

Mantis Reel Mowers feature a contact-free blade system – the blade misses the bed knife by less than a millimeter, reducing friction, yielding a scissor-like precision cut that doesn’t tear at the grass shaft like rotary blades can. The friction-free five blade reel cylinder is constructed of flame-hardened, precision-ground steel with blades sharpened to one hundredth of a millimeter – constructed so tough that they may only require sharpening after every eight years of use. The contact-free, non-friction blade design makes reel mowing much easier with less effort required by the user to manicure the lawn. A “rear spoiler” discharge reduces flinging or fly-away grass clippings and directs the cuttings through the rear directly into the grass catcher bag

The eco-friendly Mantis Reel Mowers emit no emissions and are quiet in operation. The units are easy to maneuver and weigh a mere 16 pounds. The battery-powered unit weighs only 25 pounds. Another feature of these mowers is its foldable handle (non-slip cushion gripped). The handle compacts for easy storage and transport – these units can fit easily in the trunk of the car or under a shelf in the shed.
