LMAO. I've heard that before! I'll put a 20 year old POS reel mower with a sharp reel up against a brand new walker any day.

I looked at the new Fiskars hand reel at a home show. Pretty cool piece for the green crowd. Pushes easy. Good for a homeowner that doesn't want to shell out for a power model.

I just PM'd Duekster the other day about a push reel. I have a 30" Legacy reel with 6.5 Honda and its just too big for my lawn...I'd like to try a people powered reel.

If I don't like it I have a 20" trucut that needs grinding I could use.

I will get some pix of one Doctor clinic that I service. It was redone with Tif 419.
I have it cut at 3.25 inches with a walker.......it is green, and not shaggy. This grass does perform better at 1-1.5 inches with plenty of water and plenty of nitrogen and minors.
I have been spoon feeding this clinic with Howard Johnson fert with minors.
This sports turf prefers lower cutting and will not be what most people are used to.
This cultivar was designed for low maintenance and less water but I beg to differ when the Doctor's are screaming for taller and greener grass.

Tell the Dr that you don't expect him to know anything about southern grass, much like he wouldn't call you for medical advice.

The water and spoon feeding are the key. Once you let it get brown and stringy you gotta start over. I'm mowing mine 3 days now with all the rain. Moving to the new house in a couple weeks and then I have to rent this one. No way in hell will I let the tenants care for it.

If they want taller...should have went with something else.
