I was looking for the same answers. Shooter a few posts above mentioned that he has not found away either on the thicker bermuda lawns.

As for the reel mower, I'm not a position to spend that kind of money on a mower I'd use on a handful of my customers. On top of that, most of the people with lawns like this, don't like short grass. Plus, my understanding is that with a reel mower, you have to mow MUCH more often. These yards you see are mowed every 2 weeks. With a reel mower, that gets bumped up to every 4-5 days. They don't want to triple their expense, I'm sure.
I'm a Stihl handheld guy, with Toro push mowers, no brand loyalty on bigger mowers. You couldn't pay me to own a Ford or Dodge.

My business provides quality lawn care, but more than that, we offer even higher customer service.
