Manual reel lawn mowers
in any weekend, the buzz and cough of gas powered lawn mowers is a common sound in suburbia. Aside from the noise pollution, gas powered lawn mowers spew a stack of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as their emission controls are nowhere near as sophisticated as today's cars.
A conventional gas powered lawn mower emits on average nearly 90 pounds of carbon dioxide and over 50 pounds of other pollutants into our air every year according to the USA EPA. Emissions aside, there's all the other environmental nastiness associated with oil exploration, extraction and refining to provide the gas to power these machines.
Do you know what kind of power my electric lawnmower would consume? it seems better to compare gas vs. electric...manual reel lawn mowers just aren't very reasonable if you have somewhat of a yard (in terms of size). Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what a "manual reel mower" actually is.
