Looks nice BUT... I ditched the gas machine last year for an electric model. Now I no longer have excess noise, air pollution in my face, a gasoline can, trips to the gas station with a stinky can in my nice car, changing oil. Unfortunately, the electric mower is also not available in celeste.

How much is it? I would like to mow our grass for some extra workout, and not spend so much money on people every 2 weeks.

Not bad. I'm thinking about a 20in reel for 130 for me to mow our backyard. It's a good qt acre so maybe I can get a decent workout.

Indeed, but this doesn't look flippable. Remember those mowers that really were?

I always flipped our old Crapsman tractor, but it ended up blowing up. We got a murray and I hevent been able to flip it yet, but thats because the built in Mexico pile of crap never runs.
