Hey guys, I need your help. My Mom, which is 76, wants a push mower with a starter as she doesn't quit have the pull anymore like she used to. Also self propelled would be nice. She doesn’t want to spend too much for one but I told her she could spend my share of my inheritance on one. Does any one know of a good model and brand. She enjoys mowing as it keeps her in shape she says. That and my nephew that lives no more then 100 yards away is too lazy to do it and if he did expects too much money for it. Heck when I get up to visit her I do it for the good ole home cookin'. Thanks guys, Tom

We've had a Toro Personal Pace for about 3 years. It is self-propelled and adjusts its speed to your pace. Also mulches or side discharge, easy to switch, cuts real smooth

Ours starts real easy with one pull and I see that they now make it with electric start.

It aint cheap but its worth what they ask at Home Depot. (Around $300 I think)

I just Searched for the toro mower and came up with yardgeek.com they show the mower your talkin about and it lists for $619.99 for the electric start. A lotta money but mom is well worth it. Anyway I;ll pay some and tell her it was only $300. She hates throwing away good money. Unless somone comes up with somthing better I may be making a trip to the city to Home Depot.

Being a tinker, I have had good luck 'shopping' at the Home Depot, looking for somewhat damaged merchandise. So far, a rear tine tiller and a Honda lawnmower. In each case the fix was easy enough and savings were about $100 on each. (Those young forklift operators are savin' me moola with their antics!!!!)

The Honda had excessive 'toe-in' on the front wheels, but is self propelled. Not elec. start but does pull easy. Might be a way to help Mom and save a buck, too. The managers will deal.

Take good care of Mom, you're a good example!

Thanks Duey,
`I like Home Depot. They are about to open one here in town. My soon to be wife and I refer to those places as our toy store. Moving away from home was hard when I was young and now living so far away when she needs help hurts me more. But I do what I can. She has talked about moving as it is getting to be too much for her. I tell her she doesn't have to mow back and around that much but she says it looks nice so nice when it'll all mowed. I hope to be in that good of shape at her age.

Later, Tom
