Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio In the field of lawn care, everything old is new again. More people are buying old-fashioned push mowers.
You may think that with the hot summer weather already here, people would be buying power lawn mowers. But nationwide and in Utah, push mowers are making a comeback.
"We've sold five of them in the last month, says Manwill Power Equipment Owner Cory Manwill. "We brought them in thinking maybe we could sell one or two, maybe somebody will want one for a spot, but apparently a lot more want them for that."
Manwill says a lot of improvements have been made, and blades on push mowers can actually cut through grass now. "When they are sharp, they give you a cut like you've never seen before," he warns.
For people who want to go the opposite route, there are robotic mowers that do all the work for you. They're worth every penny at $2,500.
