Reel Mower

Reel Mower

This is a reel mower that I made. Take a look at the gearing on the wheels. The gear ratio is 1:3 which means that for every one rotation of the wheel the blades spins three times. I used a gear mate on them so get the proper alignment. For me, developing the gears and getting them to align was the most difficult part of the assembly. I made the cutter blade on the back adjustable with the use of a path mate. I hope you enjoy.
