"also, I would not have the fun of repairing the mower every spring and
about 4 or 5 weeks during the summer." - Howie52, "People do not always recognize what "fun" is to others."


For years we had a young man (Caleb) mow our lawn but he got married and quit the lawn mowing business after he graduated from college so I decided I needed the exercise and decided to do it myself. We did have an old little mower that I used for a couple of years. I bought it from a neighbor for $40.00. The rings were bad and it was too much $$ to fix it. We tried everything else, we could think of to try and keep it going. So I just bought a new Murray mower from Walmart for $158.00 + tax. It's a push mower and it has a 125 cc Briggs and Stratton engine. It's enough for our lawn. I mow it in sections, ~ 1/3/day. I've used it one time so far.

So far so good.
