The new push mowers are not the tool of yesteryear. I have bluegrass and weeds. I bought a push mower and was greatly disappointed. Even the bluegrass mostly just gets bent over, not cut, by the modern push mower. If you have tough grass like St. Augustine a modern push mower is merely a decorative lawn accessory. A leaf blower is dandy though for removing a shallow snow fall from sidewalks and driveways! It will even blast snow prints off the walks.
