Gas Free Mower Stores Energy For Extra Cutting Power
The Momentum Reel Mower is a manual lawnmower which stores up energy to be used when cutting through dense grass.
Fiskars Corp. has created the Momentum Reel Mower, a manual lawnmower which uses a technology called InertiaDrive to store up energy, which can be used to double the power of the mower when it needs to cut through dense grass.
Gizmag has more on how the technology works:
InertiaDrive Technology (patent pending) stores energy like a flywheel to unleash a burst of extra cutting power when required. The InertiaDrive combines a large diameter cutting reel and heavy cutting reel blades to store energy expended while mowing less troublesome areas. When a tough spot is encountered, the InertiaDrive delivers twice the energy to power through small twigs, weeds, or dense grass that would jam other reel mowers. The mower’s large diameter cutting reel and heavy cutting blades allow it to power through obstructions that would cause the small diameter cutting reels and thin blades of standard reel mowers to a standstill.
