Tru Cut Reel Mower – Smooth Front Roller

From: $149.99


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


-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

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.

Lee has provided unparalleled customer service since I purchased my Swardman - answering my several questions upon purchase and going above and beyond to remedy issues out of his control (shipping delays at the beginning of the pandemic and careless delivery men damaging my reel). He’s been quick, responsive, and has absolutely earned my business! I’ll be strongly recommending Reel Rollers to anyone in the market for a reel mower.

What can I say, awesome product(s) and exceptional customer service. Lee and his team are top-notch! We've got two Swardmans in the family, and I keep wanting to add a third (Electra). We made the drive from Alabama to pick up mowers back in March.

OMG Lee is so honest I just can't say enough good things about this man. Went to his shop today with my wife and it was worth the 5 hour round trip. I will buy from him my Electra reel mower. Found him to be very forthright and knowledge.
