Our old lawnmower has been broken more than it has worked this summer. Larry has been trying to keep up with the grass with a push mower. It might have been possible if it hadn't rained so much. It isn't possible to cut when it is raining or while the grass is still wet because it clumps up under the mower.
This mower has a Gardena connector that allows a hose to connect and spray underneath. Then the person gets on, turns the mower on and engages the blade. It swishes out the grass from under the mower deck. I don't know how well it did it because we can't see under there, but it's certainly a good idea.
