Hey guys,

I'm looking for a good lawnmower under $500. I've got a backyard and a front yard to mow now. What's the general opinion on electric vs gas? Any specific recommendations?

Thanks!

CR recommended Toros when I bought a new one last year. I absolutely love it.

I was considering teasing you in another thread that now you'll need a lawnmower....

Just bought a Craftsman. Hope I didn't make a horrible mistake, but there we are.

I'm thinking about getting a push reel mower for my next house. They are supposed to give a better cut, plus they are quite, no exhaust, etc. I have no idea if I will like it or not. Currently I use a cheap gas mower (yard machine) that I bought used and it gets the job done.

Well, he waited almost an HOUR for advice, Mark. I mean, really, we failed him, don't you think?

YOu can buy a nice power a lot less than $500, but then again I get a Deere discount.

We have a 16 year old Lawnboy that has done us well. With fall knocking on our door, this should be a good time to buy one I would think. It is definitely a BAD time to be thinking about buying something like a snowblower (yup. We are going to FINALLY get one this year.)

I bought one a couple years back, a Toro. It was a bit more than $500 but it was worth it imo. Haven't had a bit of trouble with it.

Before this I had a ....................Craftsman. Had trouble with it from after about the first season.

I will never buy anything from Sears again. I've had a lot of duds. One of them was a Craftsman lawnmower. Perhaps they've improved them. I bought the most expensive push, self start, front wheel drive one they had back in 2000. It lasted 3 years before the metal broke that held the big rear wheels in place. Then they couldn't fix it. The parts mfg didn't supply those particular parts anymore.

I then bought a Snapper for about half the price. I've been happy with it ever since.
