Love my new reel mower
I could not be happier with the way this mower is my old reel mower used to though the cuttings under the catcher even after adjusting the deflector this one right in the middle. Very easy to maneuver the mower cut of grass is better than my old mower which was a mow master commercial mower. Maintenance is easy i got the HONDA motor can not be happier
What mowing is all about
Had new lawns laid in zoysia matrella. Bought a massport reel mower as the turf does not cut well with a rotary mower. The results are fantastic. People walking past ask if it's real turf. The mower starts every time (Honda engine) and does a great job. Important to keep the reel to bed plate adjustment right. Don't do as the shop that sold the mower to me said and leave that to them for its yearly service. It needs adjustment as per the Massport handbook every couple of months or so. All in all very pleased with the product. Buy the way, it's self-propelled not a push mower.
I'm extremely happy with this reel mower. Gives a fantastic cut, starts first time every time. I have the larger Honda motor so cannot comment on the Briggs and Stratton motor. Has the split roller which makes it easy to turn on the spot. Very easy to operate and i am glad i bought a new mower.
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.
