Are you saying that you push it all day because it's not self propelled?
I never see a post that says 21 inch self propelled mower on this forum.
I would never push a mower more then 10 feet myself.

In Australia we normally say 21" S/P for self propelled or 21" pushy for ......well a pushy.

The general consensus on this board that any 21 or 22 inch rotary mower is a "push mower" ... no matter whether it's self propelled or not. :D

Don't know if I would call my 22" rover S/P a pushy. If I have the lever fully engaged I would be running behind it.

It's just an expression. It's more colloquial to type "push mower" than "self propelled mower" or "21 inch walk behind."

And lets be honest...anybody that takes the time to type out 21" Walk Behind is a tool...just call it a push mower. You're not writing a doctoral dissertation, it's an online message board. Everybody (or so I thought) knows that "push mower" doesn't necessarily mean push mower.

how about 21wb - it is crazy when threads go on and on and noone really knows what the other guy is really talking about.

No kidding! It's a lot shorter to type 21" WB (which covers both types) than it is either Walk Behind, or push mower. :hammerhead:

You can always tell it's off season when these types of threads are started. Not complaining, it's just funny.

to me a walkbehind and a pushmower are two different things. pushmower refers to a 21" mower. walkbehind is more like a 32" or bigger. there are those odd sizes like 22" or 30" and such around. i'm not sure what to call them. :laugh:

Yea, no kidding. Maybe we didn't get much snow this year (thank GOD), but it gets pretty boring waiting for the grass to grow again, so we gotta make our own fun.:cool2:

Ok, now I understand. The next time I mow with my 21 inch I will be using my "push" mower.
But I won't be pushing it because it's a 21 inch self propelled.
But around here I will call it a "push".
I do own a 36 walk behind but it's not a "push" because it's 36 inches wide.

IMHO pushmower is a synonymous term meaning either self propelled or human propelled 21" class mowers.
