Winter is the time for annual equipment maintenance and replacing bed knives on reel mowers is an important part of this process.  Advanced Turf Solutions is proud to now be an authorized dealer for JRM, American manufactured, bed knives.  In late 2002, JRM began research and development to engineer a top-of-the-line greens mower bedknife.

Their engineers discovered a new way to manufacture bedknives through coining, and after several years of development a patent was issued.  The coining process allows displacement of super-compressed steel molecules into the strike point of the bedknife to lessen wear and to create a long-lasting cutting edge.  JRM’s Duranium-801 steel is unique to the turfgrass maintenance industry and allows the bedknives to be stronger and more durable than any OEM bedknives on the market.  The Duranium-801 bedknives will also extend reel life due to reduced sharpening and backlapping.  So, if you’re in the market to replace bedknives, you definitely need to give these a try.
