Locke reels are nice but talk about pricey, I looked at the cost of a 25" and for the price of one Locke I could have a fleet of eastman's.

Yeah, I've heard that they are very durable so you make a good point there. Locke reels are what they use on the White house lawn.

TJ, it says you are in Michigan. What variety of grass is that? Bent?

Thanks

I found a C27 in atlanta, owner doesn't know exactly how old it is but is in the lawn care business. Said he has a bunch of other mowers and never used his trucut as much. He wants 600.00 for it. If we have member in the Cumming area could u maybe look at it for me? I planned on having it shipped to Arkansas if its worth the money. Thanks.

Ebay usually has several. It also allows you to do a "saved search".
