My 220E has it, but I haven't used it yet. It will be convenient. You basically just flip a switch, start the engine, and engage the reel. It spins backwards at the recommended RPM. Definitely a plus, but not sure if I would limit my search to only mowers that have that feature. It is a bigger benefit to a golf course that has a fleet of mowers that need frequent ************.ahartzell said:Is buying a mower with onboard backlapping worth it?

Is this procedure written somewhere on this forum?dfw_pilot said:
Does he spin-only or spin-relief grind? I don't think backlapping works as well/is advised on a spin-only reel grind.wardconnor said:I usually have mine ground by a guy. Would like to learn to backlap.
Not sure. I don't actually know his name after 2 years knowing him as you can see below. I'm bad I know.Ware said:
Now having done both types, Mclane without and JD with, it's a lot easier to have it on there. Not a necessity by any means but so much quicker. Would I buy a mower strictly due to the fact it has it, not by any means, but if you can get one with it and it suits your needs you won't be disappointed.ahartzell said:Is buying a mower with onboard backlapping worth it?
Yep! Mine (and Ware's) you fire it up, hit the reverse reel switch and put the parking brake on to start the magic.I assume you can just throw some compound on, hit a button, and it will do the work?
