    Hi Paul,
    We grew 100% again this year. We reduced about 100,000 auto equivalent miles of emissions this year, mowing 5 acres a week in 10 towns.

    The video link below shows reel mower feasibility: 1. Running with a single reel mower, and 2. pushing a triple reel gang.

    I mowed over an acre each of the past two Sundays my self. I’m 51. Most people have it in them to push a single, there is no reason for gasoline mowers to be used, once people experience it. Trimmers are our friends though, I use trimmer edgers with lithium batteries that quick charge in 30 minutes in order to give it a nice finished look and get some of the strands that get left behind. Here’s the video:
