Bent Reel Mower

No Gas Lawn Mower

My dad gave me this mower that he’d been holding on to, which is just cool. It is human-powered, makes a clean cut, and is much easier to push around than a standard gas-powered push mower. I don’t have much need for it at the moment, but I was more than willing to take it.

    We have two of those. They are great but you have to keep the blades very sharp. Funny thing is, it gets the kids to actually like mowing! Their friends come over and want to try it too. Before you know it, the lawn is mowed.

    Now this is what I am talking about! Sometimes mechanical equipment is better than electrical or gas.

    I have to say that I used to have one, but I hated it, as the garden was not very mower friendly (very hard shape)..
    I guess that if you have a normal garden will be more fun…

    This looks much more fun than jerking the gas powered lawn mower in my back yard five times just to warm it up.

    I’m liking that a lot, and I want one, manual is the future & no lead to cut through!

    What’s your thoughts on a hydrogen powered mower? Isn’t it about time we moved away from gas powered mowers?

    I worked in a busy ER for many years, and saw a bunch of unfortunate lawnmower accidents, usually involving people slipping on wet grass and winding up with their feet under the mower. It never occurred to me to recommend push mowers to anyone for safety’s sake. It looks like your bent one is still safer than a power mower any day!

    Nice mower! But the big question is: Do your chickens lay eggs?

    My dad gave me the one we grew up cutting our yard with. There were times that I hated that thing but I cherish it now :)

    I use my Grandads old mover, it’s around 60 years old and better and more convenient than my electric one.

    Haha, I remember using a lawn mower similar to this when I was a child. My grand dad had one and every summer it was my job to do the lawn when I went over.
