Of course, we have a couple options here:
- A reel mower
- An electric mower
I had a reel mower 100 years ago (ok, maybe not that long ago) when I lived in Indiana and didn't think it was such a big deal. I didn't then, nor do I now have a large yard and to be honest, I enjoy the wonderful exercise lawn-mowing provides. A huge positive about the reel mower is that it's pretty inexpensive, running in around $100 for a good one. But...
Our local power company is offering vouchers for $150 off an electric lawn mower which would bring the price of the electric mower down close to the cost of the reel mower. What to do? What to do?
Does anyone out there have an electric mower that you REALLY like and would recommend? Same for the reel mower? What have you found are the plusses and minuses of both?
And for you locals... Want to take advantage of this offer? Here's what the ad says in the BTU newsletter:
$150 Off Electric Lawn Mowers!The Texas Municipal Power Agency is making available vouches to customers or residents of Bryan for promoting purchase of a corded or uncorded electric lawn mower. Each voucher is worth $150 and is available at Sears. Be sure to take your current drivers license or your BTU bill. Vouchers are available on a "first come, first serve" basis and limited to one voucher per qualified purchaser. A total of 113 vouchers are available. This voucher program will end mid-August 2009 or when all available vouchers are used, whichever occurs first.
Better move fast before those vouchers run out...
