Re: Reels on Hills. A Story of Trepidation.

My Baroness would slide on that front lawn in dry conditions. Around here you have to wait until around 1 pm to let the dew dry or cut it slightly wet. I don't think you want a reel on that hill the least bit wet. My vote is for a TruCut with a roller and newer tires. You want to enjoy your mow not ...

Re: Mushrooms in Bermuda Lawn?

Hello everyone I mowed the lawn today and after making a pass next to one of the trees in my lawn I saw a few mushrooms growing. I have never seen them before and I am wondering 1) What causes them to grown. 2) Is this going to turn into a big problem 3). How do I get rid of them? I started to pull...

Thanks guys. Is there a way to bypass the oil level sensor or troubleshoot to see if that's the problem?
Sorry, can't help you with that.

Re: TruCut Reel Mower Questions

Does that model have an oil safety mechanism to prevent starting when the oil is too low?

Re: Ferti-lone cheated liquid iron feedback

I purchased a gallon, used in early May on my Tifway 419 bermuda and wasn't impressed. Thought it would be more concentrated than it is. Used the whole gallon and probably needed more for better results. You may have better luck than me.

Re: IF THIS ISN'T THATCH, THEN WHAT IS IT?

Yes I did use a power rake to dethatch, and it's been aerated. Now I may not have gone deep enough. No matter what you occassionaly get a "floater wave. But keep in mind between 2pm and 7:30 we had 4.5" of rain yesterday. Looking at it in the sunlight today. What it really picked up was left over d...

Finished verticutting the back in the rain today. I'm happy to have it done and anxious to see how much it will help my Bermuda.

I think you will see a noticeable difference in appearance and cut! Bermuda is a high maintenance grass and I have made dethatching an annual practice. :thumbup:

Re: 2019 | What did you do with your lawn today?

Verticut the back using the SunJoe, scalped and threw down some Scott’s Green Max before the rain hits for the next 5 days, been so long without rain the grass needs it. FYI I didn’t verticut the top of the slope as we are having a garden bed installed along there next week!! Will be good to see wh...

Re: IF THIS ISN'T THATCH, THEN WHAT IS IT?

As far as debris I understand. Last time I took a big dust pan, and broom, and just swept it up off the top of the grass. But I do know this. The grass does a lot better with all that garbage out of it. I'm not agruing that it is indeed thatch. But I must say it sure looks like thatch. [/quote] It i...

Re: TruCut Reel Mower Questions

Tigerwr423, I think you will be fine if the reel mower has wheels. Your direction will be somewhat limited. I doubt you would be able to utilize a greens mower with a drum drive.

Re: Baroness Greens Mower Questions

Can't say I have but will pay more attention the next time I cut. It could be awhile as we are going through somewhat of a drought.

Re: Classen TR-20 Turf Rake / Dethatcher / Verticutter

I saw this dethather for sale locally. Anyone have any experience with this? Seems a little different with the tines rather than the flailing blades. Thinking of picking it up as the price seems fair at $400. https://i.postimg.cc/jSDMDdtF/971-C630-C-6339-4577-8-DEE-C08-A83-BA8-A2-D.png https://i.po...

Re: DETHATCH, TOPDRESSING, AND PGR BERMUDA

1. Yes, you can dethatch or verticut without topdressing
2. Your 3 ounces is correct but not sure how many gallons total it will take
3. One notch should do it! Wait before shipping?
