What is Ecomowing™?
Remember the old-fashioned, heavy, manual push mowers which once revolutionzed the consumer lawn care industry at the turn of the 20th century (1900 to 1940s). There were dozens of these reel mowers manufactures before World War II, and many reel mowers were used by women. Like housework, women did much of the mowing at that time. More recently, the reel-style push mowers have become nearly extinct, and for good reason; they were heavy, difficult to push, and needed constant sharpening. It was not an enjoyable outdoor experience.
The term "Ecomower" was introduced in 2006 as the modern movement or re-revolution of the old-fashioned mowing method. Some of the mowers being manufactured today, and all of the mowers presented at EcoMowers.com are lighter, quieter, require no sharpening for 5+ years, and are really fun to use. learn more here.
No gas required. This is not an exaggeration, it is a fact. Ecomowers™ need only be pushed using human power. 90% of U.S. mowers are gas powered or electric, and consume extraordinary amounts of oil, fuel, and electricity, resulting in the release of threating amounts of harmful CO2 into our atmosphere each year. Americans spend more than three billion hours per year using lawn and garden equipment. Currently, a gas fueled push mower emits as much hourly pollution as 11 cars and a riding mower emits as much as 34 cars. Some of the gas powered manufacturers have described their business as the "motor" business, not the "mower" business -- you decide. learn more here.
