Dear Lee Valley,
This is the first time I've liked a product so much that I've
written to say, "Thanks." The product in question is
the reel lawnmower I purchased this past summer.
I'm the mother of a young child and until recently, her father
mowed our lawn with a gas-powered mower, but he is no longer
able to do it. When I took over the job, in addition to the noise
and the smell of the power mower, I hated to use it because I couldn't
keep an eye on my child, nor hear her while it was on. Therefore,
I sold it and bought yours instead. It's a delight to use.
I can easily mow our enormous lawn, while watching my daughter as
she plays (not being frightened by the noise, she stays happily
in view). I can even carry on a conversation with her
and I can do it without polluting the air or disturbing my neighbors.
In fact, my daughter herself is able to use it (with close supervision)
and has informed me that in a few years, she will mow the lawn while
I sit inside having a cup of tea. I can hardly wait!
So, congratulations on a great product.
Editor's Note: Of course, wearing proper shoes
is recommended when you are actually mowing the lawn, unlike this young gardener, who is just proudly showing off
her family's new possession.
