Two Lawnmowers


I have two push lanwmowers: one electric and one gas. I'm debating getting rid of the electric one because frankly, I only use it once a year, if at all. My electric mower is the one with a bag for catching clippings (gas one doesn't) so I keep it just incase I ever miss a week or two of mowing due to vacationing or unforeseen circumstances, since I can't mulch that many clippings back onto the grass.

The problem is it's taking up room in my garage and since I only use it for that purpose, I'm debating tossing it, or selling it. I also keep it if ever my gas one breaks or needs servicing, that way I have something atleast to cut my grass while I'm fixing the gas one.

Suggestions? Mowing by gas takes me about a half hour, just so you get an idea of how big the yard is.

Ok so what is it your asking?
If your going to sell it I'd suggest listing it on Craigs List.
It's free and I've sold a ton of stuff on there.

I'm asking if it's advisable to get rid of it (considering the reasons I've listed for keeping it thus far)?

I know you are trying to organize your garage from your previous thread. If you address the right side of the garage, and get stuff up on the wall, you will have plenty of room. Probable half of the stuff in your lower cabinets, you don't need. Get rid of the lowers, turn it into a work bench, and put your mower under there

Good point, I'll see what I can clear out from under those cabinets to make some room. Just don't know how I'll get the mower under there after...

I'd get rid of the gas one....that way you also get rid of the gas cans. And less stuff to service.

Why? I need the gas container for my snowblower either way so I don't mind it. Plus, I don't have a problem with the gas mower, it's what I use.

Need to get you thinking. Build a parking garage just for your mowers; a 2 level one. The gas goes on the bottom and the electric on top. I just can't picture either one hanging well on the wall.

The garage will take more room than just having them on the ground like they are and easily being able to move them out of the way when desired.
