McLane Reel Mower - Grooved Front Roller

From: $179.99


Reel Rollers is the original inventor and patent holder for the aftermarket Front Roller which seamlessly replaces the stock front caster wheels found on McLane 20″ and 25″ Reel Mowers.  You are purchasing direct from Reel Rollers (manufacturer of the front roller).

Reel mowers do an incredible job of cutting warm season grasses short which results in a thick healthy turf. However, if your lawn has hills, uneven soil, flower beds, sidewalks, or driveways your front wheels frequently fall into these low spots and scalp the lawn. Scalping the lawn is not only unsightly, but it damages your lawn and dulls your reel mower blades.

Replacing the stock front caster (grocery cart) wheels with our patented Front Roller keeps your reel mower level at the highest point across your cut resulting in a smooth striped lawn.

When you’re shopping for a grooved roller, make sure you know what you’re getting! Our grooved roller will keep the height of cut that your machine was intended to have, unaffected. However, our competitors have developed a product that will increase your height of cut- meaning you can’t mow as low as you’d like to… in fact, you likely can’t even perform your pre-season scalp!

The Grooved Front Roller Advantage:

  • Eliminates scalping
  • Stripes your lawn
  • Smooths uneven lawns
  • Added front weight reduces bouncing and uneven cut
  • Extends the lift of your reel mower blades
  • Grooved Rollers reduce thatch
  • Grooved Rollers are ideal for well established lawns
  • Grooved Rollers leave a more consistent and tighter cut because 60% of the grass blades are not being pressed down by a roller
