I am considering purchasing a California trimmer front throw reel for hybrid Bermuda, Zoysia, Paspalum, and other stolonus growth grasses. I currently own a tru-cut 25 inch and it is what I would consider a very well made mower. However, it is wearing out. I am curious in the new Eastman mowers/cal trimmer mowers. They seem just as good if not better made than the tru-cut, they can cut closer than the tru-cut, the roller drive is nice (doesn't peel-out), and trimmer has been made for a very long time. My grandfather has owned a 20" home owner model trimmer for many, many, many years and it is still living and still cuts nicely. What are your feelings on this mower? Would you go tru-cut or trimmer? I get the feeling I'm comparing Toyota and Nissan...
