Why Doc choose TruCut Reel Mower
Ordering a Tru-Cut Mower → UPDATE 9/3
Last month Tru-Cut and their top distributor severed ties. Unfortunately that distributor had the ONLY true online shopping experience for TruCut mowers. While Tru Cut makes a great mower, they have not kept up with times and the internet. So you have to visit a dealer / distributor to buy one.

I spent a lot of time researching and reading, in the end a few features and usability items made my decision clear.
- Many… many years ago (before the wheel was invented) I was cutting grass on a golf course as a kid. I remember getting beaten up a bit by a BELT DRIVE reel mower and just didn’t ENJOY the cutting experience. That has always stuck in my mind and I really wanted a WHEEL / CLUTCH drive mower. I can’t really explain in writing, so watch the video. It’s just so much more of an “enjoyable cut”. THAT… was the final decision for me.
- Tru-Cut is a small USA company making mowers since the 1960s. If you talk to experienced users and professionals, they LOVE their TruCut mower.
- Quality… I call it my LITTLE TANK. It has that old fashion, hand-made feel if that makes sense. Just a beast.
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.
