    Do your have one yourself?

    I myself am a big 'Reel' Mower bloke & love the finer cuts.
    I have used a Bunton Walk-Behind when i did some work at a local course.

    Everyone is entitled to their own thoughts & mine is there cut is average, this one was heavier than the lighter walk-behinds i used, but using a Bunton at less than .100 would most likly be a disaster. But i have only ever used them once mowing 3 greens at a height of .140 & i didn't like it that much.

    My rating is 4 out of 10. Your choice however, i mean it may suit your jobs, but not for me!

    what are you going to use this mower for? Do you have someone with a reel grinder or a dealer to use to keep it sharpe & adjusted properly? A dull reel mower can cause alot of turf issues.
