Manual Mowers Making a Comeback

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Manual or as I used to call them push mowers are making a comeback. American Lawn Mower Company is the only domestic manufacturer of manual mowers in the United States.

Reasons for the increase in sales are thought to be increasing environmental concerns and the fact that more women are mowing the lawn.
