My personal yard. Have not found anyone who wants to pay to keep theirs like this, but I am showing what a reel mower can do to a few folks. Enjoy

That's beautiful. And you're right, nobody will pay to get that done.

Now that is a mower. I have one too. Modified it so it would cut between 1/2-11/2. Does an excellent job on bermuda and zoysia. How about you and your mower move to Hawaii, I know people here who would pay to have that done. There are people sick of getting their lawns torn up by rotaries or McLanes and Tru-Cuts in disrepair. How often do you backlap?

If you use any kind of reel mower you need to give one of these tool's a try.


It square's up the front face of the bedknife, Require's no disassembley for a walkmower and make's a large and immediate improvement in the quality of cut.

I am lapping once a month. These pics are of tifsport that installed when we built the house. It is at 3/16ths. Getting ready to overseed our new house. Went out today and scalped the crap out of it. Go customer to let overseed his. Will be cutting it @ 1/2".

That and the Bernhard Rapid Relief are probably the most important service tools for a reel. I face my reels with a DMT diamond file every week.
