    Haha, I cut my lawn on the weekend.

    My neighbors must have been laughing.

    My lawnmower is a manual push mower (no engine).

    My trimmer is a 2-stroke gas powered brush cutter! haha (I couldn't find the interchangeable whip head).

    My last landlord used to send her FOB cousin to cut the grass, and all she'd give the poor guy is a hedge trimmer. Used to take him four or five hours to cut the grass, and it looked like hell afterwards.

    Regardless, it still gets the job done a whole lot better then a weed whacker, which costs just as much.

    I guess I am not used to the small yard scenario. I lived on an acreage and had a ride mower with a 64"deck. It took me 6 hours, 3 tanks of fuel, and a 6-pack of Sleeman to mow all 20 acres!

    Scissors? Really? My god! lol

    Ha! That's awesome. I can just imagine someone down on all fours for hours on end trimming a lawn...

    I know some cheap ass people and they would call the people who cut their lawns with scissors or weedwackers cheaper fuckers. So you would have to be one cheap ass SOAB to do something like that. For the few bucks you save, you'd kill your back. I also love the people who mow their lawns right to the dirt so they don't have to mow it as much.

    Bastard! I had to fab my cup holders! Bought some from crappy tire along with some zip-ties. worked pretty good.

    Prolly the same Mower too!

    John Deer 445 (or 455, cant really remember) Liquid cooled V-twin
    - 4-blade 64" Deck
    - Front end bucket loader
    - 60 Gallon Tank trailer with dual spray arms and a hand-wand attachement.
    - 50 Gallon grass catcher/mulcher

    Man that thing kicked ass! If it wasn't so huge, I might be able to do some of these city yards in 3 minutes!

    And by the time she was almost done, it started to grow back. FHL.

    I have always wanted to take a picture of my neighbor when she mows the lawn. Winter boots, parka and sun hat.

    She has killed 3 lawnmowers since we moved here 6 years ago. She has it set to mow just above the dirt.

    This year we freed ourselves from the backyard lawn. It's all patio, raised beds and mulch. It's fabulous I must say.

    The front lawn is about a 5 minute cut job with the push mower.
