power reel mower

It looks like I will be in the market for a power reel style mower. The house we are moving to has a "bent" grass lawn and I understand that a reel style mower is needed to maintain it.

I know this is an engine forum but since it covers many mowers, I thought there might be some opinions or suggestions about what to look for or what brands to check out. The lawn is about 15,000 sq ft.

I asked about this in the Lawn forum and got no help there.

Bent Grass Lawn

Bent Grass requires not only a reel mower, but one with capability of very low heights of cut. A walking style golf green mower is ideal for this purpose but they are expensive, new or used. You can purchase these mowers from your Toro Distributor who caters to the golf course industry. If they have access to McLane Manufacturing, that company makes a very inexpensive one that you must push as it has no engine. McLane also makes engine driven ones that are under 2000 dollars. Be prepared to spray this lawn with fungicide often! (I have been selling this type of mower for 25 years)
