Introducing the Shields Reels RL257R Reel Mower

The RL257R Reel Mower sets the standard in commercial mowing with its expansive 25-inch cutting blade. Crafted with the rigorous precision and exceptional craftsmanship that Shields Reels is celebrated for, this mower delivers the ultimate in mowing excellence.


With the RL257R, your lawn will resemble the meticulously kept greens of a professional golf course. The mower’s reel cutting system uses a scissor-like action to achieve a clean cut, avoiding the tearing and ripping associated with standard rotary mowers. This gentle cutting method not only prevents nutrient loss and unsightly brown spots but also encourages a healthy, low-maintenance lawn by helping it retain moisture and nutrients more effectively.


Powered by Honda’s GX160 Engine

Shields Reels' RL257R is powered by the robust Honda GX160, a 4-stroke engine known for its quiet operation, power, and light weight. This engine leads its class with unmatched fuel efficiency, reduced noise, and minimal vibration while maintaining powerful output and performance. It features an OHV design and a high compression ratio optimized through precise camshaft engineering and optimal valve timing. Recent improvements to the engine’s muffler, breather valve, and case cover have significantly decreased noise levels. These enhancements make the Honda GX160 an excellent complement to the RL257R’s superior design and durability.


Built for Convenience and High Performance

Designed for optimal usability and enduring performance, the RL257R offers:

  • A forward-throw mechanism that directs clippings into the large HDPE grass catcher, enhancing efficiency by reducing downtime.
  • A high-speed reel that ensures your lawn looks smooth and flawless, without any marks.
  • Fingertip controls for safe, easy operation.
  • A well-balanced machine that offers effortless maneuverability.
