I Think I’m Going To Get A Manual Lawn Mower

manual lawn mowerReel mower – The good the bad and the ugly has almost convinced me to invest in a manual lawn mower. I’ve been considering getting one for years to replace the dirty, loud, stinky gas-powered machine that’s so heavy only I can push it.

Two things have been holding me back from buying one:

  • Its effectiveness. You have to mow frequently since tall grass will be a choir, and plants with thick stems can be difficult, such as dandelions.
  • Its maintainability. How often does one have to sharpen its blades, and can you sharpen the blades easily by yourself.

Time to do more research. I’ll create a new post if I get one.
