Reel Rollers is the original manufacturer of the front roller for Tru-Cut Reel Mowers. You are purchasing direct from the manufacturer.
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.
The Tru Cut 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
FRONT ROLLERS VS TRU CUT OEM ROLLER:
-The color and lines of our rollers add to the appearance of your mower.
-Our patented mounting brackets are the exact height of your stock wheels. The Tru Cut brand roller brackets are not the same cutting height and raise the impact the grass catcher.
-Our front rollers contact the turf 2″ in front of the bed knife exactly the same distance as the Tru Cut stock wheels. When we designed our Front Roller for Tru Cut mowers 14 years ago we tested many roller designs and found moving the roller closer to the bedknife in theory made sense, but with the Tru Cut independent rear drive often the mower was front heavy causing the rear tires to spin out.
-Zero Maintenance bearings aren’t enough, you need Rubber Sealed Heavy Duty Bearings like you find in all of our front rollers. “RS” bearings are designed for wet and dusty conditions. Rollers with “TT” bearings are intended for indoor conveyor applications.
-Even the best bearings after 8 – 10 years may need replacing. Our front rollers are designed so you can replace the bearings and continue to use your same roller. The Tru Cut roller bearings are pressed in between the roller and bracket which requires you to purchase a new roller if a bearing ever fails.
In less than 10 minutes you can install our Front Roller and allows you to continue to adjust the height of your mower. Each roller comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If for any reason our product doesn’t exceed your expectations, return the roller and we’ll give you a full refund
