If you have a reasonable sized lawn, start using a reel mover. This is what Grandpa would have used and they are quite effective. Needs no gas. No maintenance except a little oil now and again and a blade sharpening every year or two. They are also virtually silent - so no annoying the neighbors if you want to cut your grass early in the morning and late at night. Also, you spend less money on it & get a little exercise.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
