Q: I am thinking about getting one of the 5 reel mowers for about 5 acres. What happens if the grass is more than 4 inches tall when you first cut it
by Jim from Maryland on March 20, 2016

A: Jim - if the grass is too tall when you first cut it, the grass may simply "lay over" and not cut at all. It's also possible if the grass is too tall that you'll need to increase the amount of overlap between passes, mow the same path once up and once back, or actually mow in a checkerboard pattern to obtain the desired results. Grass that's too tall may also cause a strip of uncut or taller grass towards the center of the reel even though your mower is set properly.

Q: When storing this mower (the 5 roller unit) does it fold up? If so what is the storage foot print? How often do you have to sharpen the blades and how long of a process is it? I have about 2.5 acres of of flat terrain to mow, and does this thing leave the lawn with the cut grass laying on top like a fresh cut hay field? I suppose it depends on how long the grass is between mowings.
Thank You,

by Greg LaJoie from Minnesota on November 17, 2013

A: Greg - yes, the two rear "wings" on the Gold 5 mower will fold up, which makes this mower just under 58" in overall width. The unit measures 64" from front to back. It is recommended that you sharpen the blades at the beginning of each mowing season, and then again after 30 to 40 hours of use if you use the mower that much during the mowing season. This is a finishing type reel mower, so yes, it is going to leave cut grass laying on top of your property. As you suggest, this will depend greatly on how often you mow, and the type of grass you are cutting. This style mower also will cut grass just fine, but it is not going to handle any sort of brush or other vegetation very effectively.

Q: Jose - how deep of grass will one of these Pro Mow reel mower mow?
by Dave from Illinois on June 17, 2013

A: Dave - For the most part, a Pro Mow gang reel mower will handle grass up to 4" long. If it's higher than that the reels have a tendency to push the grass over rather than cut it. We also recommend that, if it gets to that height, to go over it with a rotary and get it back down to a manageable state that the reels can handle.
Thicker, hearty grasses like Bermuda and Bahia should be cut often and smaller amounts taken off at a time. Ideally you never want to take more than 1/3 of the total length at one time. This will keep the grass healthier but may require more frequent mowing.

Q: I cut 5 acres that is mostly hilly. I now cut it with a 50" zero-turn. Grass is junk, crabgrass, dallas grass fescue, onions, you name it. How will this mower do on this stuff?
by Tony Cooper from Tennessee on February 18, 2013

A: Tony - all of the gang reel mowers that we sell, including the ProMow gang reel mowers, are NOT designed to mow crabgrass, fescue and other weed-like vegetation. These are finish type mowers intended to cut large expanses of normal lawn-type grass that is mowed regularly. This type of mower will not be effective at all on what you are describing.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have about 17 acres to cut. Most of it is thick grass and weeds. Do you think this unit will work for me? Right now I am using a 60" trail mower made by Swisher.
by Willie Mobley from North Carolina on October 09, 2012

A: Willie - a gang reel mower such as the Pro-Mow definitely will NOT work for what you are describing. Gang reel mowers are finish type mowers that are effective for mowing large areas of maintained grass. This will do a very poor job of mowing thick grass and weeds. The Swisher trail mower that you are using now is the style of mower that is really designed to handle what you need to cut.

The ProMow Gold 5 is a tow-behind, five gang reel mower that delivers a quality cut for really large yards! Ideal for home, sports, and light commercial use, NO LAWN is too large or small.

The Gold 5 mower is a finishing mower that has a full 8 foot cutting width so there's not much of any task that will scare you off. You’ll be able to cut up to 4 acres per hour with the Gold 5. And this tow-behind mower only needs a riding mower of 12 HP or more to haul it around.

Best Choice I Ever Made
I mow 4 acres residential. Had my doubts about a reel mower. This thing is AWESOME. I decided NOT to spend $8K on a 66" power mower but instead got 97" of mowing with a 5 reel system. You will love it. I rarely write reviews but this thing has saved me so much time and my lawn looks so good I just didn't feel right not writing a review for this company.

I went with the PRO version because I wanted something that would last and do the best job. Best money I ever spent on a... more

Promow Great Choice!
I have 2.5 acres to mow and it usually would take me 3 hours to mow with my 52" rider. I researched the ProMow Gold Premium mowers and for the cost versus buying a new riding mower with a 72" deck I thought it was a no brainer. I purchased the 5 reels version and could not be happier! I pull it with my 19hp zero-turn rider and it pulls very easy and cuts great. Best of all the price...with shipping to my door the cost of this mower was less than half the $ of the mower I pull it with.... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Wish It Included The Sharpening Kit

"Very good experience. The only thing that bothered me was I was told the sharpening kit was included with the purchase of my mower, and it wasn't."

Working to get everything adjusted to suit my particular needs, seems to mow fine except little use due to lots of rain. Use it both as a three and a five.

Mower Does Ok
mower does a good job on perfect grass. if you have pop up weeds & clover not so well. I have to use my rotary mower every 2nd or 3rd cutting to clean things up. I cut about 4 acres in about 1 hour & 20 minutes it used to take 2 hours.
