Thank you for purchasing a Rolux reel mower and a warm welcome to the Rolux family.

You are not just buying any reel mower, you are buying over 50 years of care, attention and love that goes into making every machine.

They are unashamedly designed & built in what is now called ‘the old-fashioned way’.  They are precision engineered and built using only best-in-class materials.

The Rolux X20 weighs in at 65Kg of muscle, and we do not apologize for using only 249grams of plastic.

Quite simply, this mower is #builtforlife

To get maximum satisfaction from your mower please read through our manual  and if you have any questions at all, please contact us on admin@rolux.co.za
