Re: Why is it so hard to decide on a reel mower?

@w0lfe

Looks pretty nice. For $1350 I would choose one of those fully serviced 220SL's over a brand new homeowner reel any day - but that's just me. Sorry to cloud your decision.

I'm going to move this over to the equipment subforum.

Re: How much do you spend at Amazon?

...Amazon is amazing for hobbie stuff. Only thing I can’t buy is fishing bait. Agree. I think Walmart and others are getting pretty competitive on price, shipping, etc. but I find it difficult to beat the variety of products I can source through Amazon. I think they won the battle when they figured...

We do the Walmart grocery pickup. It's great not having to get the kids out of the car.

Re: Why is it so hard to decide on a reel mower?

I messed PT equipement and they could get a 220SL that's been fully serviced, reel sharpened, new bedknife, and HOC adjusted to what I wanted for 1350 shipped... Not for sure if that's a fair deal or not, since I haven't focused much research to the greens mowers, until I made this thread and someo...

Re: Lesco 80lb Spreader + Gregson-Clark Spreader-Mate

Anyone spreader-mate with upgraded 5gpm upgrade looks like this? The whole unit looks shifted and not parallel. https://i.postimg.cc/Sx3sZDVt/C65-FB069-1442-402-F-A265-787-CF8-B1-DF0-A.jpg It wouldn't bother me.

Re: Why is it so hard to decide on a reel mower?

Oh and I can definitely sympathize with not wanting a "project mower". I like to mow, not work on mowers, so I opted to pay a premium for a newer model greens mower with low hours. I bought mine from Prairie Turf (linked above) - they seem to get some nice mowers. All that said, the decision is ulti...

Re: Why is it so hard to decide on a reel mower?

Yeah, I would say quality of cut, build quality, and ease of adjustment for things like reel to bedknife.

My only homeowner reel experience is with a Tru-Cut and the Swardman, but you might talk with @SGrabs33 about the three you are considering - I think he has used all of those.

I have no experience with this, but I would maybe look into “dormant seeding” Bermuda.

You mean Fidelity? I just had to sign up for a Fidelity cash management account for the money to deposit to. Never used them for banking. Once I hit 2500 points it's $50 automatically deposited. But yeah, for banking it looks tedious. No, sorry I meant whatever bank is handling the credit card. It ...

Re: Helping a Co-Worker

So there are some exceptions, but it's generally not a good idea to overseed bermuda. Also, glyphosate would not "kill the entire yard" if blanket sprayed when the bermuda is dormant - but selective herbicides will work too. She'll just need to be more intentional about herbicide selection/target we...
