Got the Joy of Mowing?

I love to mow the lawn!

— Debbie A.

I’ve mowed since 1962! I’ve used a power, push mower, riding mower, Super A tractor, and now a zero-turn mower.

— Rachel W.

 I love mowing the lawn! There’s a sort of Zen quality about it. Then, I grab a cold Yuengling and sit on the deck to relax and enjoy a job well done.

Hi Joy of Mowing.  I enjoy the site so much…makes my day so pleasant!

— Roger M.

Yep, mowing is one of my true joys, nobody bothers me, the phone doesn’t ring and when I’m done I can look and see what I’ve accomplished.

— Tim C.

Been mowing 50 years and it’s one of my favorite things to do.

— Brian H.

It’s great therapy and great exercise and when you get done you can just sit back and admire all your hard work, plus getting to soak up some sunshine… all of this is good for the soul.

— Nancy S.

I solve all the world’s problems while mowing. Of course, it takes 3 1/2 hours, so one’s brain needs to do something right?

— Greg B.

I’ve been mowing lawns since I was 10 years old, now I’m 71 and still enjoy.

— Darrell D.

I use a push mower, it cuts my grass better and takes longer so I can have peace away from my stressful job.

— Stephen P.

…love mowing my lawn…and yes I use a walk-behind…very peaceful…

— Jack H.

Who else has to grab a cold drink and admire their work when they are done?

— Josh W.

I think I came close one time when the zero turns at work broke down and did everything with a push mower

Ya, I bet professionals beat that daily but no one is counting

11.6 acres at 20 inch cut.

Nothing runs like a Deere.

Over the years, weve heard of folks mowing for 7 - 10 hrs. on a single property. What was your longest mow?

7.5 hrs we had 3 people and a 600 unit apartment complex mow,trimming,blowing. Still mowing but hate apartment complexes to this day. Lol 😂

11 acres. Only 4 or so showing In picture. 72" scag turf tiger, 7 hours. Due to the bumpiest farm land I ever touched. 1 timer.

12 homers mowing alfalfa

10 1/2 hours at an industrial site.

10 hours at a boat yard

It takes 5-6 hours to mow mine with a diesel Kubota with a 6 foot deck.

As a teen, it took me over 8 hours with a push mower.

About 6 hrs with a push mower.

From about 6pm till about 11:30 pm


3 days on 3 farms

Got a temporary contract to mow a church once, I didn't have the proper equipment (riding mower). I got there at 8 A.M. and didn't leave till about 6 P.M. I used a 48" walk behind to cut the 5 acres.

No money in huge commercial lots!!!

7 hours.

The word "honda" is used very loosely here😝 it'd be fun to know how much actual mower is left on this lol. It's probably like nascar, which 2 of my brother in laws work for and say there is no longer a single factory part on a "stock" car🤣
