Gang reel mowers can cut down your mowing time by thirds. Our lists of the best-selling, top-rated, and expert-recommended mowers can do the same for your shopping time. Take a look!
The clippings fall back onto your lawn, providing the turf with a natural fertilizer as they decompose.
Each reel will follow the contour of the turf, eliminating scalping or uneven cuts.
Don't be seduced by claims of blistering mowing speeds with a gang reel mower.
Generally, 4 - 5 mph is the top speed for a good quality of cut. Any faster and these mowers tend not to cut or discharge properly.
Although you have to take them slowly, you cut hours from your mowing time with their vast cutting width.
Three reel gang mowers are the smallest with cutting widths between 4 - 5 feet.
Five reel gang mowers will get the job done faster with cutting widths of 6 - 8 feet.
For really large expanses of grass, seven reel gang mowers have cutting widths of more than 11 feet.
Gang mowers can weigh hundreds of pounds so you need something powerful to pull them.
Garden tractors have large enough engines to handle the job. You can also attach a gang mower to an ATV.
