Anyone out there know where I can find a push type reel mower that will cut 3/8″ or lower to maintain a putting green ? THANKS

McLane Mowers sells them inexpensively. I have a putting green in my backyard in Orlando.
Check out http://www.putting-greens.com/ for lots of info on building a backyard putting green and maintaining it.
My green is Dwarf Bermuda and it’s a little long right now because I can’t mow it as often as I need to with all the rain and work in the way.

Those prices on the website seem pretty steep to me. Unless there is something very special about the design you might want to price up some UK cylinder mowers. Cylinder mowers with a roller at the back are still quite common over there. I don’t know what the shipping costs would be however. I’m assuming you want a close cut with a stripe on the lawn – yes?

Try UK manufacturer called ATCO. Their top priced cylinder mower with a roller is app. 900 USD, and it’s motorised. They are a very old firm of mower manufacturers.
