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.

Reel Mower that Cuts Zoysia Grass Well

Silent Cut Reel Mower cuts Zoysia Grass

We are often asked which mowers cut Zoysia Grass well.
We are so pleased that this new mower is on the reel mowing scene- The Silent Cut 18 and Silent Cut 21 Reel Mowers do a fine job on Zoysia Grass (and Bermuda). Silent Cut mowers are made in China for an Amish company which maintains a high level of quality control over the product. They insist on it being made to their specifications, and they do open, inspect, adjust, sharpen and lubricate each one before shipping.

Two year warranty, U.S Based.
There is a two year warranty and parts will be available for a long time. I often point out to people that there is a big difference between a Chinese company coming over here, buying products and going back to make knock-offs, and an American company that contracts with Chinese factories for labor they cannot afford to pay for here.
