It's Inexpensive to Own a Reel Type Push Mower
Push Mowers are Much Cheaper to Buy than Power Mowers
If you have shopped for lawn mowers recently, you will know that you can't purchase a good gas or electric mower for under $100. You can, however, find a great assortment of push style reel lawn mowers starting well under $100.
Furthermore, you never have to purchase gas to run your mower. You don't have to spend near as much money on maintenance, oil changes, spark plug replacements, winterizing, etc. Reel type push mowers are simply much cheaper to own.
