Thumbs up I'm a proud owner of a brand new eco mower



It's a lot easier on the grass since it actually cuts it instead of chopping off the tops like most mowers do.

We used to use those little bastards in the Army. I hate to admit it but they actually do a damn good job without much effort. Way cheaper to buy, run and maintain than a gas mower.

Disclaimer: All of that goes right the fukc out the window if you have any ditches or even a slight incline anywhere you need to mow.

They even make them in 18 feet wide if you want to pull them behind a tractor, like they do on some golf courses.

They're much easier to push than a gas powered mower and you get a nicer cut.

I have been looking for something easier to push. My mowers hydrostatic pedals are a pain in the ass to hold down.
