Thrifty Thursday-Hand Push Reel Mower

We have been waiting a few years to have a yard of our own again. Recently, we moved into a house that has a small yard. My husband is the grass mower in our family and he decided to try a hand push reel mower. The mower is perfect for our yard. It takes my husband about 30 minutes to mow the entire lawn. He also gets his exercise and we will save money on his gym membership! We have also gotten to know our new neighbors . They have all came out of their houses to offer my husband to use their mowers!
Not only does the mower not need gasoline, but it cuts down on noise pollution in the neighborhood. This brand of mower has excellent reviews on-line and by my husband. It's light-weight and cuts a wide strip at 18". While still possible, accidents are less likely with this mower.

If you have a small yard, you should look into buying a hand push reel lawn mower. You will save money on the cost of the mower, the cost of gas, and you will help preserve the environment.

  1. My husband and I have a manual mower like this, and we love it! We have a half acre of lawn, and we can handle the mowing just fine with one of these. It's a really nice workout, and it doesn't create the loud noise and gas fumes that irritate my husband's asthma. My neighbors have also offered to lend us their gas mowers, which is really cute! But we have lived in our house two years now without any gas powered yard equipment, and we are in good shape with a healthy lawn. :)
