  2 Questions
Q: Jose - how hard is it to push this mower? Looks pretty heavy from the spec's.
by Neil from Illinois on November 10, 2015

A: Neil - California Trimmer reel mowers are designed to make the operation as smooth and easy as possible. There is a drive roller on the mower that propels the mower forward using a deep-tread, no-slip covering that protects the grass and provides tremendous traction. If you need to operate the cutting reel without forward movement, you can simply raise the roller off the ground and take advantage of the mower’s unique “freewheeling” feature – perfect for cutting under shrubs and in tight spaces.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Jose - I'm not sure if I should be using a 5-blade or a 7-blade mower for my lawn. What's the difference?
by Dave from Illinois on November 10, 2015

A: Dave - generally speaking, a 7-blade reel is best suited for cutting bermuda, tiff, bent grass and zoysia. The 5-blade reel is best suited for cutting wet grass or areas that have a great amount of moisture (rain). The prevailing rule: the tougher the grass and the finer the cut you want, the more you want the 7-blade; the wetter the grass, the taller the grass, the chunkier the lawn, the more you want the 5-blade.

Wet Climate: 5-blade
Common Bermuda: 7-blade
Hybrid Bermuda: 7-blade
Zoysia Grass: 7-blade
Bent Grass: 7-blade
Junky Grass: 5-blade

California Trimmer (20") 7-blade Power Reel Mower
I received my mower and it had a hole in the gas tank . Called services they sent out a new one took about a week . I put that on and all is good. It is not real easy to set up but i got it. The mower run and start very good . The grass catcher is not the best.
the mower handle is way to short I'm only 5ft 8".
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions, Difficult To Use, HANDLE TO SHORT

Great Mower!!!
I love this mower. Perfect cut every time. It's built as if it's made for industrial use. A huge difference from regular lawnmowers made for home use. When you first buy one, you better ensure to adjust the height. The first time I used mines, I didn't adjust it and left it at default height, and it scalp my lawn to bear dirt. And before I could stop it, it had already dragged me about 10 feet. This thing is powerful!! Buy it with the front roller installed. With the roller, I can now cut the... more

Amazing Quality
This mower is for the Gardener/Landscaper that wants the best for their lawn. It cuts amazingly even, leaving a smooth finish. It will cut your lawn short enough for a putting green.

The mower is easy to start (I'm a woman, and it is no problem). It is surprisingly quiet. And yes, it is expensive but you get what you pay for.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

I Love This Mower! I Tell All My Friends I’m Middle Class Now!
It’s a really great mower, everything about it. The only complaint I have is it’s a little on the heavy side. Which makes it difficult to get in and out of the shed.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

Heavy Duty
This is a good unit worth it's price however it is very heavy and awkward to turn or operate in tight spaces. It tends to dig in the grass as a result. I have a hybrid Bermuda and it must be cut fairly short thus the front roller is a must. Furthermore it was a newly sodded yard not well leveled so in time I must sand dress it or continue to experience spots of scalping. This unit is not meant for the laid back operator, it takes real effort.
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Not for small spaces

A Great Mower
This is my third Trimmer mower. The one before this I purchased new in 1985. It is still working but needs to be rebuilt as it is worn out. I went online last month just to see if they still available. when I opened your website and found this machine I bought it. The day it was delivered I opened the packing and found my new Trimmer. In 15 minutes I had it ready to use. I set it up as my old mower had been for years. It took about 5 minutes to get used to the feel of the clutch. Another great... more
