What Is Backlapping?

Backlapping is a maintenance technique used for reel mowers to sharpen and adjust the cutting blades (reel blades) and bedknives. It involves rotating the reel backward (opposite to the usual cutting direction) while applying a lapping compound between the blades and bedknives. This process is typically done to maintain a clean, sharp cutting edge on the reel blades and ensure an even and consistent cut on the grass.

Over the past couple of years I’ve purchased a couple of parts from reel rollers. The release of the new Revolution 26 hit me just at the right time. My current reel mower was done (I had bought a rough old used one to test the waters). I contacted Isaac and setup a time to make a 4hr drive to visit them to check out the new mower. I’m so glad I did. The mower was obviously great but the reel rollers team was even better. I don’t know about you but when I make this kind of purchase I want to know that I have some support behind me. These guys made me feel welcomed, answered every question, and even told me the questions I didn’t ask. They hid nothing. I’m pretty sure that if I would have asked to full disassemble the machine they probably would have. I’m glad to be partnering with Lee, Isaac, and the rest of the REEL ROLLERS family.

I bought my first Reel mower from Lee at Reel Mowers and honestly from the fist call the customer service was amazing. He talked me through the purchase mailed a part that hadn't arrived when i picked up and then even came to my house after I had an issues. He then gave me some amazing lawn advice. Couldn't recommend this company enough. If you're looking to buy a new reel mower call Lee first. A1 customer service and really knows what he is talking about which is refreshing.

Reel Rollers is an amazing place for all reel mower enthusiasts. I have seen the owner’s yard and it is truly a beautiful site. Zoysia so fine you just want to take your shoes off lay down and make snow angles….but in the grass. 🤣 This guy knows what he is talking about. Thank you Lee and Reel Roller Team for all your lawn mowing advice.

Drove to their shop today, and I picked up a grooved roller to replace the front caster wheels on my tru cut. Their customer service was unparalleled. As many reading this know, it's not easy to find a reel mowing expert. They seemed almost excited to check out my nearly 30 yr old tru cut, give me some maintenance tips, show me some things I can adjust, etc. Can't speak highly enough for this place. I feel lucky to live a stones throw away.
