The mow-able parts of my yard are not very big. Absolutely no reason to get a rider one. On that note I’ve been looking at reel mowers that are all human powered or maybe an electric one.
Anyone use reel mowers before? do they actually work well? This is in florida so it’s “grass” per say but filled with roots and obviously a fuck load of sand. My lawn is not flat either.
Are electric ones worth a shit at all?
I bought a mower in 2009 for $150, I’d have to go look at what it is. It doesn’t have the motorized wheels or even variable speed.
I changed the oil once after 11 years and bought a new blade that year too.
Sometimes it takes 2 pulls to start now. I’d say I got my moneys worth.
i’ve been through 3 gas push mowers in 5 years and it has been pissing me off so I’m looking for something harder to break. i wish i had a reliable one like that.
yep. The lower the tech, the longer it lasts.
You’re doing something wrong
yeah i know that’s why i’m going basic.
to be fair two of them were given to me and seemed kinda fucked already and the one i bought just wasnt enough for my yard the way i was using it. i also am pretty rough with stuff.
im lookin at this
im sure some guys on here landscaped for awhile and are/were mexicans. any info would be appreciated!
How are these gas mowers breaking?
shitty chinese metal that’s basically aluminum cans pressed together with uyghur muslims.
there just isnt enough yard to be mowed to warrant a mexican.
I bought a Honda mower about 4 years ago and it’s the most reliable gas engine product I’ve ever owned.
If it’s small just get an electric one.
All the Ryobi electric tools I have work well & have lasted well.
About 2200 reviews & averages 5 stars. So it can’t be too bad.
anyone ever used a regular reel mower? has it worked? did it suck major ass?
i kinda like that ryobi one
I remember someone on here a long time ago saying they bought one (reel)& it sucked lol. But I’ve never actually used one.
I have a small yard and I actually pay a fat redneck $40 to mow it every Tuesday.
