This Thursday a riding lawn mower is getting delivered to my house. Yes I caved and bought a rider. After almost two years of pushing the Worx cordless electric around the yard, I finally gave up. The Worx does a great job, I just want something that is easier to use, and fits the size of my lawn.
I ended up getting a 42 inch Craftsman mower with an automatic transmission. I figure if I am gonna go all suburban on my urban lawn, I should get the automatic. And since the mower has a cup holder, having an automatic makes it easier for me to drink beer while mowing. (no shifting gears) I went with the Sears brand after doing some pretty solid research on quality, and who manufactures Craftsman mowers for Sears. The product is solid for the price, and the mower has a ton of attachments that are available for it. Things like a snow plow, which I will probably buy this fall before winter sets in. Yes I am tired of shoveling snow, and a snow plow blade is cheaper than a snow blower.
Next Friday or Saturday I’ll post a first impressions review of the mower, and the mulching kit.
