Q: How well does Little Wonder BRC-26 cut plain grass when not used on brush?
by Mark Brodt from Arkansas on April 22, 2016

A: Mark - not exactly sure what you mean when you say "cut plain grass". If you mean can you use the BRC-26 to mow your lawn, then no, you would not be able to do that. The blade on the BRC-26 is not intended for a finish cut type look that you'd get from a regular lawn mower, and the shape and design of the deck isn't going to provide proper air flow for a consistent, even cut. This mower will chop down tall, thick grass to a manageable height if that's what you mean, but the resulting cut will not have a neat, even appearance. These mowers are designed for managing overgrown areas that have dense weeds, heavy brush and overgrown vegetation.

Serious Design Flaw
When 'dialing' down the mower's speed to slowly cut thick field grass, pressure builds in the transmission, pushes against the user in the T2 Hydro on the forward lever and forces it back to neutral.

The Return to Neutral (RTN) control arm and spring are too strong and designed for being stepped on with feet, not hands. The main spring in the RTN is very strong and creates hand fatigue while mowing forward at slow speeds.

The only solution is to cut pressure in the T2 hydro transmission... more
Pros: Durable, Quiet
Cons: Difficult To Use

Conquering My Two-acre Wilderness
I normally kept up with mowing our back lot but this year I let things get away from me. Before I knew it, the weeds, wild rose bushes and wild blackberries had taken over, some growing as high as eight feet. Here and there a variety of sapling trees had crept into the landscape, some almost two inches in diameter.

To fight back and reclaim this wilderness, I knew I needed a formidable weapon. I ordered the Little Wonder field and brush mower and went on the attack. Towering weeds,... more

"Very smooth purchase transaction. When I received the mower I overlooked the operating manual in the packaging. Anxious to learn how to operate the Little Wonder, I contacted Mowers Direct which quickly sent me another. The helpful tips offered through their website can be very useful. These folks have their act together!"

Beast Of A Mower
Rented a Little Wonder with Honda engine to clear a 1/4 acre lot. Lot was totally overgrown, had not been tended to in about 10 years. Hit a few hidden stumps and more than one hidden concrete blocks. The Little Wonder kept going. Hydraulic mower drive simply went into overload mode, halting the blade when needed.

Otherwise this mower just kept chomping away at the saplings, thick vines, poison ivy, poison oak and other nastiness. One advantage of this size mower is that it can get... more

Just Received Little Wonder Brc-26
I used it for an hour. It cuts through brush just fine. Unfortunately designers did not pay attention to engine braking while working on the down slope. While going down slope the Little Wonder BRC-26 promptly derailed the drive belt. The tensioner is spring loaded with no displacement limit so the belt derailment is no surprise to me.

I ended up dragging dead unit up the hill ¼ miles, not an easy task for 70+ years old man. Re installation of drive belt requires a 'special tool', just... more

Well packaged on arrival except for paint rubbed off on one handle, (packing tape indicated).

Easy start, well balanced, light on the shoulders, hand controls easy to grasp, hydro speed adjustment knob a real plus, very slow speeds an advantage in rough areas. Narrow width good in the orchard, built-in oil funnel is great! Easy access to blade, engine brush guard, easy access to belt, a lot of great features.

Ground very wet so we didn't use it for long. Seems to cut w/o any problems. ... more
