Your Australian Cylinder Mower Buying Guide

Are you after the ‘Golf Course’ lawn look?

Known by a few names, a reel or cylinder mower offers precise performance and superior short-cutting abilities when lawn care and a professional finish are essential.

Traditionally found in use across Australian golf courses, bowling greens and a wide array of sports fields, a petrol-powered cylinder lawnmower is increasingly in demand for the discerning homeowner – looking to keep their yard in tip-top condition.


The shearing blade action of a cylinder mower
means that grass blades
are neatly cut and not torn,
helping your lawn to grow back thicker,
more robust
and improving its health after each use.

Before you dive into the purchase of your own cylinder mower, here are a few things to keep in mind and help you get the results you’re after:

  • It’s a good idea to mow your lawn weekly with a cylinder mower to avoid cutting overgrown grass.
  • Try to change direction each time you cut, e.g. from north/south to east/west, to stop your lawn laying over and away from the blades.
  • Cylinder mowers are great for a range of grass species, including Buffalo, Kikuyu and Zoysia and Couch, alongside perennial Ryegrass and Kentucky Blue.
  • To train your grass to be mown low, be sure you don’t break the 1/3 rule, meaning never cut more than 1/3 of the grass blade off in one go.

        The TruYard range of Australian Cylinder Mowers      
    can cut grass from 32mm down to just 6mm -
for a perfect finish every time.
