Cutting Edges
Must Be Parallel
   The Reel Must
   Be Perfectly         Reel
   Straight and the
   Bedknife Must
   be Straight and
   Flat in Order for
   Them to Work
   Properly            Bedknife
Cone Shaped Reel

  Reels Can
  Become Cone-         Reel
  Shaped. This
  Causes a Great
  Deal of Strain on
  the Supporting
  Bearings When
  Adjusted Parallel   Bedknife

Height of Cut (HOC)

   Two   Methods of Measuring HOC
    Bench Setting
      The     Height at Which the Bedknife is Set Above
          a Firm Level Surface
    Effective Cutting Height
      The    Actual Height at Which Grasses Are Cut
Bench Setting

  Distance Between
   Top of Bedknife
   and Bottom of
   Rollers
 Effective Height of Cut

 Weight   of the Cutting Unit and Attachments
  Every 10 lbs results in .005” height difference
 SoilConditions
 Roller Shape and
  Surface Area
 Grass Type
Frequency Of Cut (FOC)
  DistanceTraveled Between
   Consecutive Cuts
      Direction of Travel
FOC Factors

  Number  of Blades on Reel
  Reel Speed (RPM)
  Travel Speed
FOC Negative Effects

  FOC   Too Slow (Higher Number)
   Marcelling (Wash Boarding)
    (Rippled Effect)

  FOC   Too Fast (Lower Number)
   Over Stressed Grass
     Stripes   and/or Brown Tips
   Accelerated Component Wear
Marcelling

   Wash-boarding
   Rippling




                    Objectionable
                    Cut Quality
FOC “Guideline”

  The Lower the Height of Cut (HOC)
   The More Blades That Are Required

  The Higher the HOC
   The Less Blades That Are Required
Bedknife Attitude

   Down




   Level
    Better Cut Quality
    Better Stripe
    Reduces Scuffing
    Accurate Height
     of Cut Adjustment
