I was curious if anyone has attempted to pull a reel mower with their ET? If you want an example of what I'm talking about follow the link below.

I cant say I've ever pulled a ganged reel mower, but I have pulled a yard sweeper. It worked like a champ. You'd probably be able to get much more lawn cut that with a powered deck.

GE originally offered a ganged set of reel mowers, but I hvae never seen any. In theory, they should work. My feeling is that they would not work as weel in deep or heavy wet grass. They certainly hve been popular with grounds crews at golf courses, however they cut their grass far more frequently that the average home owner.

Thanks for the input. I talked with a rep at Pro-mow and they even mention that it does not cut long grass and tends to to just mat it down so you have to keep up with it. The good side would be cutting a 6ft 10in swath of grass and no bagging.
