To buy or not to buy?
It was much the same weather this morning as it was yesterday, sunny and cool. But as soon as we started walking the clouds came :-) But I’m happy as long as it doesn’t rain. I’m planning on buying a new lawn mower today. It costs so much to repair old machines that it is cheaper to buy a new one. I remember the days when it wasn’t. But then again, machines didn’t break down that often either back then. I’d rather have an expensive machine that doesn’t break down than a cheap one that always breaks down. Unfortunately it seems most people in the world want it the other way.
So what kind should i buy? I’ve never really liked the petrol driven ones because they just make too much noise but they are effective that’s sure. I have one without engine but that doesn’t work well unless the grass is dry and we haven’t had dry grass in weeks now :-) But it is great when it hasn’t rained for a while, it is actually easier to mow with that one than the engine mower I had.
Then there are those electric ones. Cordless and with a cord. The cordless is very good but costs a fortune and since I doubt they have higher quality than any other machine I really don’t want to pay too much. I think they put an extra tax on those because of the battery, it isn’t environmentally if the battery is tossed out in to the nature. But I doubt that anything tossed out into the nature is environmentally :-) :-) :-)
I’ve had electric mowers with cords before and was quite happy with them. The only thing is that one has to plan how to mow, it is so easy to cut the cord if not thinking while mowing :-) One kind I like is called Flymo, it hovers above the ground at the same time it cuts the grass. It is soo easy to mow with that one. I can push it in front of me with only one finger. But there is a slight problem with it, when it hovers above a ho,e in the ground it sort of works the other way, then it becomes a vacuum cleaner :-) :-) :-) I do have lots og holes in my lawn.
The other kind is like any mower really, the difference to Flymo is that it can cut really high grass, up to 40 cm (16 inches). I rarely have that high grass though so I’m not sure that’s a reason to buy one :-) :-) :-) But I’m pretty sure it will be an electric one with cord and I have lots of cord to use after buying all those Christmas lights :-) There’s only one thing that might stop me today, I really don’t like leaving little Sune in the dog yard yet. I know he can walk in to the dog house if it starts to rain but will he?
Since Nova can’t be anywhere close when I have to vacuum the cottage I placed them all in the dog yard the other day and I don’t think Sune left the dog house at all during that time to be honest, Nova doesn’t and he is where Nova is :-) Well it is time for breakfast and then I’ll have to decide weather I’ll buy a new one today or not.
