    Use a push powered mower. No engine no gasoline (petrol), or no motor no cord to handle (or battery to charge). I have a push powered mower that I use when I don’t feel like dealing with 180 feet (55m) of heavy power cord (heavy to minimize voltage drop because it’s only 120 volts).

    And multiple spinning blades, which are much sharper than those in a rotary mower.

    Not for nothing, but anyone cutting their foot off with that mower would be utterly impossible. For one thing, the handle is tilted toward you, so that means the blades have to be at least a yard away from your feet. And, unless you’re the world’s champion of all klutzes…

    My parents trusted me to do everything dangerous and were hoping I would be offed in the process.

    Reminds me of when we considered sending one of our sons to military school. He knew of one easy way to get expelled from it..
    His answer was: OK, send me, but all your money will go up in smoke..
    Guess who went to public school. And he never became a smoker.

    That sounds like the “if it don’t kill you, it’ll make you stronger” school of parenting.
    Just wondering: if they are still around, are you still speaking to them?
    Or, did they go into a witness protection program somewhere?

    I started helping with the yard work at 9 or 10 with as gas mower. By 13 I was doing most of it. By 15 or so, pretty much all. And, that was back when the lawn mowers didn’t have a deadman switch on them. Once you turned it on, it stayed on until you turned it off. Keep an eye on him at first, Grandma, but make him get his tushie off the couch and help (and his sister too).

    I really think you need a psychiatrist to talk to, not the unseen commenters here.

    Just tell him to keep his feet out of the blades and get on with it, Kate. He really won’t cut off a foot, or even a toe, to make his point.
