Gasoline motors on yard care equipment drives me batty. The waste of energy, the pollution, the noise, all just to trim the grass and clean up the clippings!
A reel mower and a rake can accomplish the exact same thing with a little bit more effort, and a lot less noise. Besides, it’s really better to leave the clippings on the grass to nourish it.
The other day, I saw a teenager cleaning the clippings off a newly mown lawn with a leaf blower! I cannot imagine a less efficient way to do the work!
Rant over. Thanks for humoring me.
