OK, on my yard Ive been mowing with a reel mower and it looks great. The other day I was mowing and my engine locked up on the reel mower(its 30yrs old). I used my Toro 21'' to finish the yard. The cut really suprised me. It didnt look half bad (compared to the reel mower). I did notice, however, that it left several circular marks from the blade. About 2 days later I noticed that the tips of the grass are brown. Just the very tip. The grass looks fine otherwise. Is that caused from the rotary mower "tearing" the grass compared to the scissor cut of the reel mower. Also, will the grass get "trained" to cutting with a rotary mower (brown tips and circular marks). Im debating on what mower to buy for next year. My choices are the Exmark 21" or a McLane 25" reel mower. I mow my Tiff at 3/4" and the Exmark will mow that low. I could use the commercial exmark 21" on my customers yards but the reel mower will only be used on my own as I have no other Tiff yards. I really dont want to have to buy both. Whats yalls suggestions. Do any of you use rotary on Tiff grass with good results.
