Does Simplicity make a reel mower?

Recommended Posts

OrangeMetalGuy
My front yard is pretty small, too small to cut with a tractor. I use a power rotary mower. But I think a reel mower cuts better than a rotary, and would like to look into getting one next year to get a better cut. Does Simplicity make them or will I need to look elsewhere?

I've used two different self propelled reel mowers. They do give a superior cut, provided that your lawn is dead flat, totally free of sticks and leaves, and your are willing do do a lot of work keeping them sharp. To me, it absolutely wasn't worth the trouble.

Check ebay...lots of options, and this search gives a pretty good idea of both power and non-powered reels. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=reel+mower&_sacat=See-All-Categories

There was a reel attachment for the wonderboy rear engine mowers, although I have never seen one in person. Would love to have one tho, just to have it. I think they were 32 inch wide, but not sure. http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/new_in_1957/wb_mowers.htm Steve

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
