Push Mowers make mowing Reel Fun

My lawn mower is quiet, easy to push and doesn’t pollute the air.

reel-mower-blogMore than 50 million Americans start their gasoline-powered lawn mowers each week to neatly clip their lawns. But they’re also polluting the air in the process.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says small lawn mower engines are big polluters. Most people don’t associate air pollution with mowing the lawn, yet emissions from lawn mowers, and other outdoor power equipment, are a significant source of pollution.

“Today‚Äôs small engines emit high levels of carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. They also emit pollutants that contribute to the formation of ozone.”

Last year we parked our gas guzzler and bought a mower that uses alternative sources of energy for mowing, like walking and pushing.

The push reel mower we selected is made by Sunlawn and I love it. It’s quiet, easy to push, does a nice job of cutting and is so safe the dog can be on the lawn while I’m mowing. Plus there’s no running to the gas station to fill the gas can.

A reel mower was the ideal option for our yard, because there’s not that much lawn anymore. Every year I keep reducing the turf size to conserve water and the energy it takes to maintain a large lawn.
