    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'm having a hard time finding a used trucut so would any of yall hesitate to buy a used mcclain reel? They are going for around 300-350.

    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".
