Re: Reel Mowers

Can help with the weed whacker. I've got a Black & Decker "Grass Hog." Lightweight, works great. We've got run-away macho ferns in places; I use it to tame them. Also have used it to prune down a large stand of Mexican petunias [pencil-thick stems].

No, but I want one too so I don't have to shell out 60 bucks a month to
get my yard mowed. So I'm certainly interested! Also in small
lightweight weed whackers that I can manage, preferably electric
rechargeable cordless types.

Subject: [CHAT] Reel Mowers

Anybody on the list use an "updated" version of the reel mower? I want
one for my garden areas where the riding lawn mower won't reach and for
areas that I DON'T want my husband or kids to even get CLOSE to with a
mower. When I told my DH this...he said...those things are worthless, my
grandmother had one and I used to have to mow with it..and I hated
it....they are heavy and don't cut worth a darn". My reply, "so did my
grandmother, but now they are lighter weight and have self-sharpeners on
them". He is not convinced.
