I got rid of the lawn in the back yard and my front lawn is so small I can cut it in 5 minutes using a reel mower. smile

When I was younger I was convinced the only reason my dad had me was so that I could take over the lawn mowing duties for him.

I hated doing yard work.

I guess it worked out for the best, me moving to Arizona. No one out here has a lawn. Just gotta plug in an air blower and move the dust off the rocks.

Cutting the lawn?

Cop neighbor: Hey! I'm out here mowing and doing yard work. Why don't you?

Me: 'Cause that's what boyfriends are for. You should get one.

Cop: I don't think Jan would like that.

Me: I don't get it. Wives can be so weird about that stuff.

Cop: I know, I'll talk to her.

Bob: grin

Ken: Just so you know, I was only teasing about the Craftsman mower. After the rest of the posts, I didn't want mine to also be a "negative" in your mind.

PM me your email address!

Our new across the street neighbor apparently mowed our lawn for us yesterday morning. Very cool. The day before they came over, introduced themselves, and gave us some rice krispy treats.

For what it's worth, my parents (initially) and I (these days) have been using the same Craftsman power mower for about 20 years now. You change the oil and scrape the crud off every so often and it just keeps working.

Before that I was given the task of returning a light-duty electric Craftsman mower to the local Sears. Motor had fried. I found out later that the "power boost" handle had been taped down for 4-5 years, so I'm surprised it took as long as it did to burn out.

I suspect there are a wide range of Craftsman mowers, with different engine vendors and different manufacturers. Some of them seem to be really good, but I imagine that they also have some "lots of features, not much price" versions which aren't as solid. I was taught to always buy "basic and heavy" wink

Snerk. I'll remember not to do that. It's got a Briggs and Stratton engine, so I guess that's pretty good.
