Versatile push reel mower ideal for flat lawns with special blade and maneuverability features

The Fiskars Staysharp 6208 push reel lawn mower combines superior cutting power with excellent maneuverability to create a mower ideal on flat lawns that anyone can use. You have the power to adjust the blade height as well as the benefits from the StaySharp cutting system and InertiaDrive. Whether your lawn has soft, golf-course grass or tougher, southern-style grass, the Fiskars Staysharp will be effective.

InertiaDrive Reel

One of the reasons for the Fiskars’ superior cutting power is the inclusion of InertiaDrive. This feature means that the reel of the mower has a large-diameter with thick blades, resulting in 50% more cutting power than other reel mowers without InertiaDrive. You can mow easily through weeds, thick grass, and even twigs.

StaySharp Cutting System

The StaySharp cutting system also contributes to the Fiskars’ cutting strength. This system sets up the blades so they never touch as they cut. The blades stay sharper and don’t wear down as quickly as blades that do touch and create friction. With sharper blades, the mower cuts grass and weeds more efficiently for much longer.

1- to 4-inch height adjustment

When the time comes to mow your lawn, you probably have an idea about what you want it to look like and how tall (or short) you’d like the grass to be. With the Fiskars’ height adjustment, you mow your lawn to 1, 2, 3, or 4-inches.The height adjustment includes an easy one-touch adjuster.

Strengths

Easy to move

Since push reels require a lot more effort than a self-propelled mower or gas-powered mower would, it’s important that your mower is easy to move. The Fiskars Staysharp is designed to reduce push force, so compared to other reel mowers, it’s 30% easier to mow. This means less time mowing, less sweat, and less soreness.

Cuts all grass types

With the cutting power of the Fiskars 6208, you can cut all kinds of grass. Many other reel mowers have trouble with rough grasses, but with the Fiskars, it can easily work through grasses like bermuda (a tougher grass) as well as bluegrass (soft and fine).

Easy grass discharge

Getting rid of all the grass clippings is also easy with this mower. The uniquely-designed chute for clippings shoots out the grass forward and away from your feet. This keeps mowing cleaner, so you don’t have to deal with shoes and pants covered with grass after each mowing session.

Weaknesses

Doesn’t work good on uneven surfaces

The issue with this mower is that it doesn’t work good on uneven surfaces. The Fiskars 6208 is designed to move flat against the ground, so for lawns with hills or lots of bumps, the mower loses its cutting effectiveness. You can deal with this by adjusting the wheels on both sides, so one blade is angled closer to the ground than the other. You might get a better cut this way on hills.

Overall Review

Overall, the Fiskars Staysharp 6208 push reel lawn mower offers superior cutting technology and reduces push force compared to other reel mowers. It also cuts most grass types, even tough grass, and has a height adjustment so you can cut tall grass to the perfect height. Because of its design, the Fiskars is ideal for flat, smaller lawns.
