Here is one of my oldies. I did not say it has to be something you use,LOL. My grandfather gave me this . I tried to use it on my yard and what a work out it gave me. The other pic is an old garden trowel that was my great great grandmothers.

Uhm I'd have to say it's between my powerrake/verticutter or my S-200 snow blower.

Cuts grass. Maybe I will make a video of myself trying to use after I have a beer or two.

you win!!!

don't hand out the trophy yet - the wooden handle are older

1923 Monta first year of production
The Monta Mower was manufactured by the Montague Manufacturing Company of Traverse City MI.
The sales office was located in Grand Rapids MI. A wooden handle was used until the start of World War II.
After the War a wire handle was adopted and in the 1950's rubber grips were added.
The company was gone by 1962.
