Initiative Objective

You can cut pollution, gasoline use, spillage, noise, dust, traffic, obesity, and unemployment by using a "Reel mower" instead of a gas mower. - at similar prices as conventional “dirty” lawn care (5 to 10% of US air pollution), while encouraging lawn reduction with native plants and organic gardens, emphasizing food growth over grass.

Kyle asked:
Did you weld two reel mowers together? How much time does that cut down on a yard? And how much harder is that to push?

Hi Kyle, I am sure Dan will get back to you soon. But, thought I would also reply. Yes, he has tied two and three reel mowers together for larger jobs, which does cut down on the time it takes. Not sure how much harder to push, but depending on the size of the lawn, believe it is worth the effort. Daphne
