Trucut won't sweat that in any direction.raymond said:Should folks with a hilly yard stay clear of reels? Or are there some brands (I.e. TRU-CUT with larger rubber tires) that are better for hills?
Yo, get a journal going. I nominated you for LOTM, and you need a journal. Chop chop!Cory said:California trimmer wouldn't have a problem with it either. Goes up and down my ditch with no issues. I tend to mow it long way though cause it's less work for me.
Thanks! That's an old pic from his fall that shows the slopes in my front and side yards better. Man how those trees have grown!raymond said:Your yard looks great BTW.MasterMech said:
Silly question.. how are most reels propelled? Do the rollers spin? Or does he reel itself pull it along
Any reel would likely do fine if it's dry.Jimefam said:
Now this is a slope! Thsts what my new house has on both sides. What kind of reel mower would i need to get up and down that?
Looks fantastic! thanks for the info :thumbup:PNW_George said:I have a slope and have used reels for many years. My previous Locke CL25 was ideal; the clutch would slow down the mower just like a manual transmission in a car down hills. My Dennis is controllable but does pick up speed when going down hill. You don't see many flat golf courses, some of the short aprons they mowed at the US Open were pretty severe.
