Check this out. Looks similar to the mowers found in AUS.

.6" isn't too bad. I'd love to hear what anyone who has used one thinks of it. I may want to try it out on my fringe sections.

From what I noticed on Home Depot's website, it appears to be a preorder situation. Too new to know for sure though.

I dont understand what is the electric motor doing. Is it just rotating the reel or is it also driving the wheels?

If its anything like the Ryobi in Australia than it just moves the blade. My thought is wouldnt that actually complicate the cuts more than help if you walk too slow? I would think its a good investment for bermuda but not rye

I'd love to try it on my Tifway-419. With it not having any drive it would probably be easier to work around and between my firepit and trees. Heck, I'd be willing to deal with a corded version if it could cut low enough.

I didn't even think about the possible improved maneuverability without any drive. This could be a great gateway reel mower for me!

I do know without a battery it turns into a manual reel.
