Favorite reel mowers For Bermuda home putting greens:

And a bit of care advice for your Bermuda grass lawn :
A reel mower is preferred for cutting Bermuda grass. This gives a cleaner cut, and these mowers can also be more accurately adjusted to low heights.  Grass clippings can be left on turf maintained with low to moderate fertility levels if mowed at the proper height and frequency. The clippings do not contribute to thatch, and they provide supplemental sources of nutrients. Remove the clippings only if the amount is so excessive that clumps form, or if appearance is important. Here is a very nice article on the care of Bermuda Grasses.

The Silent Cut Is The Mower For Institutions And Commercial Use

The Silent Cut has proven to be the best mower for institutions like schools, universities, and prisons. As more and more start-up green landscaping business get going, the Silent Cut tends to be the mower of choice as well. Recently we had a start-up green landscaping business look into ordering twenty Silent Cut Reel Mowers

The Silent Cut Mower

.

What makes the Silent Cut special is the mechanics of its wheel to blade configuration. It is a very detailed machine and often takes some tinkering to get it adjusted properly. Once it is adjusted it is a dream to use. Even though it is heavy, it seems to push more easily than any other mower I have tried, including the Brill, Fiskars, and NaturCut reel mowers. It is no wonder that this is the mower that is selected for commercial use.

Putting Away Your Brill Mower

As the season slowly turns to winter, yes, snowflakes fell in New England today, it is a great time to winterize your Brill mower. First of all make sure all bolts are fastened firmly. Then take a can of WD-40 and spray the blades. With a rag wipe the blades clean and if you have a can of silicone spray, spray the blades again. This will protect the blades from moisture.

Clean the wheels of debris on your Brill Mower. Take off the wheel clip and the wheel. Look at the gears. Often grass and dirt find their way into the gears. Clean and put wheel and wheel clip back into place. You’re done.

My Son Matt and His Mower Choice

My Son Matt: My son Matt is 14 and has been helping me mow for the last few years. He started out having a small patch to mow. Next he mowed the whole front yard which is about 1/4 of an acre. And now he sometimes mows the whole lawn which is about 1/2 an acre.

Brill, NaturCut, and Fiskars: Matt started using the Brill, then chose the NaturCut, and then the Fiskar reel mower. He had difficulty with all three. The Brill was hard for him to push and couldn’t cut high grass. The NaturCut while it cut high grass was still a challenge for him to push through high grass. The Fiskars required maximum effort which meant he had to stop and rest.

The Silent Cut Mower

Mascot Silent Cut: This season we added the Mascot Silent Cut reel mower to our stable, and Matt has a new favorite. He just cut the back of our lawn in 25 minutes. It is about a 1/4 of an acre and the grass was quite high. Naturally, he is getting stronger but he is amazed at how quickly he can get the job done. Matt loves this Silent Cut push reel mower!

Silent Cut Reel Mower Does a Great Job!

First Spin: I just took my Silent Cut 21″ reel mower out for its first job of mowing my 1/2 acre lawn. Wow, what a beautiful job the Silent Cut push reel mower did. Because its blades are 21″ wide it took quite a bit less time to do.

The Silent Cut Mower

Blade Adjustment: The blade adjustment is done using the elongated brass adjustment nut. You need to adjust the nut on both sides of the mower. Make sure to just adjust the brass piece with a wrench.

Easy to Push: With the weight of the mower I expected it to be difficult to push. But I was happily surprised that once you got the Silent Cut 21″ started it was fairly easy to push. This was the mower which I was recommending for mowing Bermuda and Zoysia grass. Now I’ll recommend it for all grasses.
