Scotts 20-Inch Push Reel Mower #2000-20

scotts_push_mower.jpgOther than having an excuse to take our shirt off and display our E.T. physique to the neighbors, we really don't like mowing the lawn. Not only is it straight up drudgery but we always have trouble starting the damn thing.

So if you're like us, you might want to check out Scotts Push Reel Mower. At 20", it has a wider cutting path than most push mowers. It also has 10-inch wheels, five blades, and nine cutting heights between one and three inches.

The best thing about this mower is that there is no engine. We find lawn mower engines to be second to none when it comes to frustration. Just think, no pull cord to start it up, and no pretending that you know what you're doing by taking apart the carburetor.

The Scotts push mower sells for about $120. Any worthwhile gas mower is going to cost at least twice that amount and probably more. Also with the price of gas the way it is, even the little amount that goes into your mower could be a savings.

It is a wise move in using the reel mower in this expensive petrol moment. I use it between using the petrol mower and the next major moment when I have unfortunately had to neglect the lawn. All going well the push reel mower keeps the grass at a managable level, which means using less petrol next time. 2 years ago, I bought a push reel mower for that purpose, for AU$4 (yes $4), and with a bit of minor repair it is an absolute marvel. Everything old is new again. Given before petrol mowers came in that's what most people used. And the big jobs, no whipper snippers, all they had was a sickle or a scythe. I'm only 56 so all that was before my time.
