    Walk or Ride

    So I like to run a self powered mower.

    A few benefits:

    maneuverability
    walking see pine cones, sticks and the likes. Easy to bend down, toss or picked up
    pull start
    mows faster
    easy to store

    what say you, walk or ride?

    I ride.
    I'd rather push mow, mostly because the 20-22" push mowers are cheap. However, it takes me about 3 hours to push mow .75 acres with one of those. It's not too bad in the spring and fall, but in the middle of summer it's not too good. A nice wide walk behind shouldn't be much slower than a rider, but they are more expensive. And even a low end lawn tractor can push a little snow and tow a little weight.

    Certainly good exercise. & I'm young at heart as well, it's my body that isn't. Mainly in the heat of summer.
