Push mowers are just better…there, I said it!
I agree it is fun to mow the grass in 3 minutes and 47 seconds. At the end of the day though is the juice worth the squeeze? There are so many reasons that smaller push mowers are better in the long run. They are lighter on the lawn so there is less rutting happening, the are easier to maintain, so on and so on. Not to mention they are cheaper to purchase from the start. If you live on a large 1-2 acre lawn then I get it…riding mowers just make more sense. But if you have a normal residential lawn, do the right thing and get a push mower.
