Re: Reel Mowers


Richard,
I have a Mantis and have used the edger, though I can't this year because it
requires a left-hand pull. The string trimmer that I was commenting on in
that post is used to trim grass around rocks and fencelines.  I think this
is a problem of symantics.  Two kinds of 'edging'.
