For fine cut turf, the reel mower has always been the best machine for the job. These early riding mowers were often used on golf courses and sod farms and eventually on home lawns (most likely estates).

Considering the age of the photo and the simplicity of this mower's design, it is shocking how little has changed between these relics and modern golf course greens mowers. Nowadays, the ride is a little more comfortable, there are more components and features, but all the basics are exactly the same.
