    well,

    the least used piece of equipment on my trailer is a push mower. i completely destroyed mine last year, because i had to use it....it was getting old...
    so i need a new one. BUT i only use one a couple hours a year, if that.

    What is a good brand to buy? i'm not looking to spend $1000 on a fancy commercial one, just something to get me through a couple more years. i don't need it to be self propelled, thats only more to go wrong. bagger would be an option, but most of the time i'm just cutting very small swails so i can just mulch it, and no i can't use a weedwacker because the old people there flip out.

    Kinda funny nobody uses a PUSH mower any more I guess. We usually buy the big commericial 21" units with self propel and don't really need that, we could use a simple unit also.

    I have atleast 8 push mowers in my shed. They are from before i got commercial equipment, some are 8-9 years old and still run like new. I wish i would have had hour meters on them to see the pain i put those mowers through
