Power Reel Mowers

Doc stresses a few points about power reel mowers.  Understand that while price is a factor, he mainly focuses on the FUNCTION of the reel mowers. It’s critical that your reel mower match your cutting needs and style or else you simply won’t like using it.

Why Mclane Reel Mowers?

Doc has now started to recommend Mclane mowers because of the VALUE… made in USA… and the ability to cut SLOWLY when you need to cut in tight restricted areas.

Where to buy the Reel Mower

Doc STRONGLY suggests you purchase from the distributor below. Not only do they retail them but will answer questions and stock parts. They start around $1500 with shipping.

Tight Spaces? Corners? Fences? Gardens?

Summary… I want the engine RPM to remain the SAME SPEED while at the same time slowing down to a CRAWL to focus on tight spaces, curves, gardens, etc.  The TRU CUT reel mower is the only unit made with DUAL CLUTCHES that allow the engine RPM to remain constant, yet you can slow down to NOTHING… barely  moving…  and keep cutting.

About Tru-Cut Reel Mowers

The only way to have a healthy, beautiful, “golf course” lawn is to cut it like they do – with a professional quality reel mower. The precise cutting action of a reel mower results in an extremely clean cut and also allows you to mow the grass at a much lower and healthier height which requires less water and chemicals.

Ordinary rotary mowers cut solely by impact, no matter how sharp the blade, tearing and shredding each blade of grass, resulting in “split ends” which cannot hold moisture. Get on your hands and knees and look closely at the damage your rotary mower is doing to your turf.

Rotary mowers also cannot cut low enough for the entire grass shaft to receive proper sunlight, resulting in decay, brown spots, pest intrusion, and an overall unhealthy lawn.

TRU-CUT Reel Mowers cut each blade of grass exactly like a pair of scissors, as low as 3/8″ – without scalping. This is the reason every golf course and athletic field is cut using only a reel mower.

Tru-Cut is the #1 selling Professional Reel Mower, not to be confused with or compared to the brands you might see for sale in a department store or home center.

Best known by professional lawn maintenance contractors, Tru-Cut Reel Mowers are built to withstand the rigors of everyday commercial use, even in the most demanding applications.

The Tru-Cut drive system is 100% independent of the cutting reel, allowing you to transport the mower without the blade engaged. This exclusive feature greatly reduces reel wear and increases time between sharpening.

Another Tru-Cut exclusive feature is the Wheel-Drive transmission which is far superior to the labor-intensive and inefficient “Roller-Drive” design used by all other manufacturers. Roller-Drive designs require you to manually raise and lower a roller wheel every time you want the mower to move or stop.

Other TRU-CUT Reel Mower Features include:

Easy-to-learn fingertip controls provide true ease-of-operation for maximum operator comfort with minimum effort.

Precision-ground solid-steel cutting reels and bed knives provide an unmatched quality of cut from as low as 3/8″ to as high as 2-1/4″. Extra-tough all steel welded frames with reinforced handles last many years longer than other brands which are simply bolted together.

Extra-wide rear drive wheels and front swivel caster wheels provide maximum traction and unmatched maneuverability on all models. All C-Series extreme-duty commercial models are equipped with Four rear drive wheels and Four front caster wheels. ( H-Series and P-Series models are equipped with two rear drive wheels and 2 front caster wheels )

A single-lever height adjuster is located at the operator’s position, allowing you to adjust while mowing. There are no belts to adjust or replace. Each mower is constructed with an all ball-bearing design to outperform and outlast other mowers which are assembled with only bushings for a lower initial cost. In summary, Tru-Cut mowers maneuver easier, cut smoother, require less maintenance and last longer than any other brand of reel mower.
