Since 1991 I have used 3 different reel mowers (McLane, TruCut, and Locke) on my 6000 sf hybrid Bermuda lawn. The McLane was underpowered, the TruCut's clutch went out, and the Locke's reel-to-bed knife adjustment was difficult to maintain. Since I am in the market again, I would like to hear the pros and cons of staying with a reel or switching to a greens mower. (This topic might have already been covered on the forum.) If there are members who have used both, it would be interesting to hear their evaluations. I am leaning toward a 26-inch greens mower, since HOC can go up to 1.25 inches, and presumably their reel-to-bed knife adjustments are precise and stable. Thanks for your comments!
