Why A McLane Reel Mower?
McLane Reel Mowers are the #1 selling engine-powered reel mower in America, and that didn't happen by luck. Each mower is still manufactured by hand in California, using the very best quality materials and processes which have been developed during McLane's 78 year history.

Time-tested components such as maintenance-free sealed ball-bearings reduce service costs and downtime. McLane's proprietary in-house heat-treating process results in reels and bedknives that last up to 10 times longer than inferior, less expensive brands. The new 2024 mowers are now being covered by a 5 or 10-YEAR Limited Reel & Bedknife Warranty, which is unmatched in the industry.

We often hear from our customers who purchased their McLane mower 20, 30, and even 40 years ago. The relationship you will have with your reel mower will be a long one, and it's important that you but from a reliable company which will be there to support your purchase for many years.

McLane Mfg. has been in continuous operation since 1946, longer than any other American Mower Manufacturer. They have sold hundreds of thousands of reel mowers which are supported by readily available replacement parts, service support, and product knowledge.

McLane Reel Mowers are the ONLY engine-powered Reel Mowers Manufactured in America, by American Workers, using 99% American Components! ( With a goal of achieving 100% in 2024! )

All Models are available with your choice of Honda GX-Series or Briggs & Stratton XR-Series Commercial-Industrial Engines, both of which are considered to be the best small engines available!

There are several new brands now available for sale in the United States. None are made in America. Just a few years ago, our supply chain failed due to an unforeseen event, and we couldn't even find toilet paper. Your lawn is not patient and won't wait for a replacement part to come from China or another overseas factory. You are making a pricey and long-term investment in a mower, so please consider the readily available supply of replacement parts in our country for all McLane products, as well as a nationwide network of servicing dealers who have been working on our products for more than 77 years.
