On the 25.5.16 I purchased a new Masport 500 Reel Mower. Within 12 months the blades were still spinning in idle, now in 2019, the clutch has totally fallen to bits. I asked a professional lawn mower contractor about the Masport clutch durability, where he stated a good reel mower will get at least 2,000 mows before the clutch needs adjusting. I avg 20 mows per year which means I have only used my mower approx 60 times cutting clean roll on buffalo lawn. The repairer just shrugged his shoulders, stating, he has seen it all before so many times.
Purchased in May 2016.
Questions & Answers
How can I stop the front roller from pushing down the grass so it doesn’t get cut. Is the front roller too low or is this is what happens normally. Could I just remove the front roller?
Hey guys. Looking at getting a cylinder mower. Masport or supaswift?
what is the advantage of a split front roller as against full steel roller? and what is the advantage of a 10 blade as against a 6 blade reel? My use is for maintaining a croquet green.
