Sounds like you have a heck of a lawn to cut,nice!

I have a Black&Decker lawn mower that cuts my whole lawn with one charge(big lawn)which is very good I thought. It has been about 3 years since I bought it, I like it.

Its a nice property, about 7 acres. Not huge but not small. Only about 3 acres is cut 1-2 times per week during the summer months including trimming. 2 acres of fields is cut about 3 -5 times and the rest is left for nature to run wild. With the Toro ZTR it only takes a few hours for the bulk of cutting. There is an abundance of trees planted throughout the entire property that is native to the Carolinian forest.

Honda. Extremely dependable. $500 might be a push though.

Well, I might find out how well the mower works tomorrow. Or how well I know how to mow a lawn (not at all).

If you are not using a mower with a bag attachment, the proper way to cut is to have the grass clippings blow to the cut side and not the uncut side.

Or mulching where it does not blow out the side or back but chopped finer and is 'pushed' back down. It is tough to go through heavy or wet grass when mulching depending on how strong your mower is.

My personal favourite as I don't have to deal with grass clippings - more time to enjoy my Axioms! wink

Not a push mower but I thought that I'd chime in and say that my 97 Troy Built lawn tractor just refuses to die. It spent all it's winters outdoors from 97 to 2006 before I had a garage and most of those without even a cover because they kept ripping during blizzards. The cowl is gone thanks to my wife's need for speed but it is still starting first turn of the key (choke turnover doesn't count) and I've only replaced minor parts, belts muffler etc. The drive belt adjustment is seized up and requires the odd nudge from a fine tuning instrument (hammer) but otherwise it just keeps rolling.

Nice when you get something that actually lasts. It seems rare these days.

Well, I haven't had a chance to read the manual and figure out what additional items I need to buy yet (oil, gas, stabilizer, gas can, what have you), but my neighbor came over and mowed the front and back yards yesterday.
