California Trimmer 20″ Homeowner Reel Mower with 5.5HP Honda GX 160 Engine, 7 blade reel, and grass catcher (RL207H-GX160). We only stock the California Trimmer with the GX160 engine because you need the additional power (40% more power) when scalping in the spring. Some retailers will have a lower price because they are selling 20″ Homeowner California Trimmer with the 3.5HP Honda GX120 engine. The GX120 is enough engine for regular frequent mowing during the season, but you’ll be thankful for the extra power in the spring with the additional 2HP of power coming from the Honda GX160 engine option. California Trimmer mowers have been in production since 1935 with a proven track record of success. Powered by a strong Honda GX160 engine standard on all mowers sold by Reel Rollers gives them a competitive edge at a price that won’t break the bank. In fairness, we believe all Reel Mowers have an excellent cut in the residential market but what makes the 20″ Homeowner Classic attractive to many potential buyers are 3 key features.
1. Their clutch system allows you to feather the ground speed as you approach obstacles or travel full speed on the straight away.
2. Their reel to bedknife adjustment is easy to access and easy to execute.
3. Their powerful 5.5HP Honda GX160 engine mounted onto a 20″ mower gives you the peace of mind and confidence for many years of mowing.
California Trimmer reel mowers have been creating and maintaining beautiful lawns for over 80-years. The precision cutting action is superior to rotary mowers as it shears the grass blades with a clean, sharp cut like scissors, instead of tearing or shredding. Most grass experts agree that using a reel mower is better for the health of a lawn which will helps it stay greener longer and look like its part of a finely manicured golf course.
