Guess what! My new wheels arrived Thursday evening!!!
No. Not THOSE wheels.
I've been wanting a set of these babies for a while now. 20" Scotts Classic Reel Mower. I would think about getting one of these every now and then, but figured they were not worth the money to buy one. I didn't know they'd improved these since I was a kid. A few weeks ago, while driving down my street, I saw an elderly woman pushing one. It put a spark behind the idea to get one.
Our 3/4 acre lot is not the ideal lot for one of these. From what I read, they work best on those lawns that look like golf course greens. Our yard has roots and holes, weeds, and every type of grass you can imagine. But with a little elbow grease, and by putting the mower handle under my fleshy upper torso parts and rib cage, I did just fine. (I may have odd bruises in strange places tomorrow.) The back yard actually wasn't too hard.
I figure that since I love being outside, and actually love finding things to do that double as exercise, this will provide me with pleasure.....not fun pleasure......but pleasure none-the-less.
