    this is a finish mower not to be confused with a bush hog.....

    Reel mowers, also called cylinder mowers, have a rotating reel consisting of spiral blades forming a drum that runs on a horizontal cutterbar. The bar is run just above the ground and the reel runs at a speed dependent on the forward movement speed of the machine. This is the same as the common hand-propelled lawn mower. It is used on bowling greens, parks and sports grounds because of the excellent surface that it can produce. These mowers are often ganged into sets of three and five, or more, for large areas. A well-designed reel mower can cut quite tangled and thick tall grass. The scissor-like action of a reel mower provides a much cleaner cut on the blades of grass than a rotary mower, avoiding brown ends that result from tearing or bruising of the remaining portion of the blade of grass.
