Last week we received a ton of rain here in south Texas and our grass grew overnight to triple canopy jungle conditions. I pulled my two reel mowers out, old trusty and old rusty, to knock down the grass. Every thing was going along fine until the rear roller of old rusty broke. The roller controls the height of the cut, without it the mower scalps your grass. My frugal (read extremely cheap) self decided that to find a replacement part would take to long and cost to much. Off to the hardware store.
