    Mowing Tips

    A hand reel lawn mower provides the traditional mowing technique preferred by lawn care professionals. This mower is designed to provide years of dependable service and give optimum performance in lawn care. The reel mower not only benefits you and your lawn, but the environment as well.

    A reel mower works on different principles than a standard rotary mower. It only cuts what gets between the reel and the cutter bar. Therefore, it is important to cut your lawn regularly and not allow the grass to reach a height of much over 3-4" in order to insure a proper cut.

    Mow no more than one-third of the grass blade, so that a deeper root system is encouraged. A lawn with an extensive network of roots needs less help finding food and water and can better crowd out weeds.

    Transitioning to a Reel Mower

    The key components for customer satisfaction with these excellent machines are:

    • A small lawn of 6000 sq' and understanding the following:
    • "Often when people are switching from a gas rotary mower to a reel mower they are unfamiliar with the differences between the types of mowing. If the mower jams then you are cutting too much grass or pushing the mower too fast; if there is grass left standing after you pass over it then you needed to overlap your passes.
    • A full double pass is not uncommon when transitioning a lawn (we commonly overlap about 3/4) and most reel mower users overlap 1/3 to 1/2.
    • Maintaining the lawn with a reel mower will improve the health of the lawn and can give it a luxury lawn appearance. You will likely mow slightly more often and in a slightly different manner."
