This baby's got a flywheel, height adjusters, and a three-spool roller. Yep, all that and it was free (props to Meg's mom).
We mentioned a while back that the grass around here doesn't get cut that often. To be a bit more accurate, it's only been cut three times so far this year. I've got to admit that it is quite nice. We really don't have to worry about neighborhood ordinances and what not that would force our landlord to cut more often, so he'll let it grow over a foot before he gives Steve the okay to cut it. That's when we follow with rakes and use the clippings like the straw it is to mulch anything that needs it. Like I said, it is quite nice. The only drag is that the tall grass along the perimeters of our gardens usually trends towards encroaching and being thoroughly bothersome.
Our solution is this new-to-us kick ass mower. A few passes around each garden and we will be good to go.
Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a non-electric chainsaw with low emmissions? If no, where would we go for a good timber saw and what would we ask for? If you have any input to these queries, please include your response as a side answer. Thanks a ton.
