I don’t like yard work. While I enjoy the great outdoors, I’m more a naturalist when it comes to the world at large. Sure I love gardens and manicured lawns with flowers and benches and all of that. But it’s a real labor of love. And I only have room for a few of those, time permitting and all. And taking care of the lawn is not one of them.
It’s not that I have a large yard. My my back yard is landscaped and is decked so there is no working around grass or anything like that. Racking and bagging. That’s easy manual kinda stuff. But for the front of my home and the sides, I do need a mower. Not much of one but I need one. And this is the year that my 13 year old Briggs and Straton 6.5HP mower engine decided to give up the ghost and become more money to fix and maintain that is to repair.
Sure I could spend the time and efforts to replace, poke, prod and cajole it into life but it wouldn’t be any easier for my son to start, my wife to push or for me to lend to my neighbor every so often when his does pulls the same sputtering smokescreen producing yaws on a Saturday morning like it did today.
So I bit the bullet. I’ve been dying to go green on this. I’ve already converted my other tools to Electric engines so why not my lawnmower.
Introducing my new, mean green, Greenworks 25142. It’s the 16″ 10A unit with bag and mulch capabilities. It’s easy to push, easy to start and despite complaints about dancing around the cord when mowing, it’s going to be a thing of beauty when I get a call from my son that he finally was able to maneuver better around trees and stepping stones.
Green so that the neighbors know that you have gone eco-friendly, 16″ mower to help you get around things, mulches and bags, quick start and quiet. And when you don’t serve kale at your next BBQ you can still grant yourself earth friendly bona fidas because this beast gave it to you.
