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.

“When my grandfather passed away...  grandma gave the tractor back to my dad and it sat — not running — in his garage for years.  Vivid memories drive this refurbishment story: 

Comment on Facebook

I’ve got a ‘71 commando 800 just like the one in the picture. My father bought it new in ‘72 when I was 12. I used to sit on it in the garage as a kid and eat my lunch. You had to about pry me off.

I have a 1973 simplicity Baron S that was owned by a  neighbor that was like a grandfather to me. I would ride in his lap while he mowed or plowed. I have the tractor now and still use it. And I’m 47

My son has his grandfather's Simplicity 7116H. Good old tractor and it still mows every week.

Great story, nice to see appreciation for things handed down

That was when they built quality equipment.

Thanks for sharing this

What about ! Turning on sod ? How bad are those areas ?

I have the TRX 561. The smooth ride is awesome. Cuts great!

Have never seen that drive system in person.Looks pretty cool!

I like the idea of no flats but can’t give up my Ferris.

If only they had more dealership support.

I got that last mow in yesterday. I mulched my leaves. Now my lawn shines like a new penny.


The fact that us in Canada do it in October. We get all the goodies sooner. Happy Thanksgiving.


Family time.

The story of the Copar Panzer tractor goes back to a hot summer day in 1953, when James A. Clark was trying to put in the lawn around his new home in College Park, MD.  Story, pics, video here:

My grandparents had one with alot of attachments. If I remember right, had a 1932 Plymouth rear-end. And 5hp B&S motor.

That's a great picture!

Looks great 👍

Man. That's a heavy front end 😯
