What do you think about this? 2 years old 1000 bucks? What is it really worth if it has been properly maintained?

if you can find a good one get a Locke, but don't be afraid of a trucut...they are great reels. If you are interested in buying one of mine let me know.

It is getting plenty of water and sun just seems like it isn't growing much at all. Also i just picked up a new bank that was just built it is Emerald zoysia. They let it get deep enough to engulf my flip flop and foot almost. Do i need to just mow it down and forget the 1/3 rule? I mean yeah it is gonna yellow but hey it is there fault. Also it is really lumpy. And when i say really i mean REALLY lumpy. If i can get them to topdress next year is it going to make it smooth enough to mow with a reel? Also when is the best time to top dress, mid summer? I have been looking at so many trucuts on craigslist and i dunno what i am looking at. Are the commercial units much different from the home owners units? i mean 2 yards mowed twice a week?
The Emerald needs to be taken down slowly, if it has gotten that tall than you may need to slowly take it down and when it is dormant you can take it down to where you want it, but do it weekly and not all at once.
You will see a black in the turf towards the roots, that area will take some time to recover, Emerald grows real slow. Yes cut it with a reel at .75 to 1" but no higher, if it gets higher you will that that lumpy feel to it.
Top dress it when its hot, end of May should be good or June.

so basically i cant reel mow it until i topdress. UGH that is so far away. The landscaping is shiaty and not well thought out. it has a steep slope that goes down to a drainage ditch. The tree placement and rings are terrible. I can't even use a 42" walker ghs on it. i tried. And it has like a water pocket or something. if you step in a certain spot it is squishy and will wave. It is SO weird. So looks like i will be push mowing it with a little 21" mower for part of next summer.

You can try and reel it now with out topdressing it, since that stuff is so thick its incredible.
Send me your personal e-mail and I'll send you some pics of my yard cut with a reel. Chris can tell you that even using the Locke on Emerald you can't keep a straight line, period! The wheels never touch thge ground causing it to slide all over the plave, that is one reason I went back using the tri plex, plus missed cutting the yard under 1/2 hour!
