Buying a Lawnmower

Buying a lawnmower is an important decision because the mower you choose affects how you will feel about actually mowing your yard.

Letís face it, you either love mowing or you hate it. Whatís the difference? - for most people, it comes down to the quality of their equipment. If you have an acre to mow and a push mower to mow with, you probably hate mowing. But if you have an acre to mow and a nice, reliable ride-on mower I bet you love it, right? Thatís if your kids donít beat you to it!

Think about that before you buy a new mower - buy a tool for the job that stops it being a chore. Sure, itís simple advice but the difference between a chore and a pleasure often comes down to the tools you use - thatís why the pros buy the best tools for the job - and for them, itís just work! For you, itís pleasure so donít spoil your pleasure by turning it into a chore to save a few bucks.

Sure, a quality lawnmower is more expensive but how cheap is a cheap mower that you hate using and that dies after two years?

The links below will take you to quality tools - the kind the pros use - from the same place the pros buy theirs - so the prices are great too.

If you take only one piece of advice from an old pro, let it be this - ďNever buy the cheapest you can find, buy the best you can affordĒ.
