I am thinking about picking up a back up push mower, but would a self-propelled reel mower be a better purchase? If a reel mower is as wide as and travels at the same speed as a regular mower, and a reel has the ability to cut prettier, then isn't a reel mower more valuable than another push? Also, marketability should be better with a reel. People who currently cut their own yards would be more likely to pay me to do it if I had a reel mower and could make it look better than they could with thier push mower. Plus, I already have customers who would like their lawns cut shorter than I can cut with a standard mower. A reel mower would make them happier with their lawn service. The cost of a reel is more, but shouldn't it make up for itself with new business and happier customers? Also, can one of these do a good enough job?
