  • Want to buy a lawnmower

    I want to buy a lawnmower..
    not a ride-on and doesn't need to be power-drive..
    just the old style push it up and down lawnmower..

    Anybody bought one recently?

    Re: Grass Man

    Most of the Japanese mowers cut too low for real lawn grass. Here's a high-cut model that does the job nicely. Check it out on Yahoo or Amazon Japan. A bit pricey, but made in Japan.

    ゴールデンスター 25cm-GSH-250

    As it's made for Japanese lawns, the size reminds me of those old Fisher Price toys.

    Happy mowing.

      Thanks..
      yes.. that is ridiculous, isn't it...

      Honda make a good 2 stroke.. but it is 85,000 yen...

      Interesting how lack of demand can make some stuff here silly expensive..

      I cut about 70 tsubo with a brush cutter today.. and don't want to do it again.....

            COSTCO sells one - good for flat to gently sloping, but not for rice field walls.

              You're right. They're ridiculously expensive here.
              Found a couple on Yahoo Auctions.

                  You mow the grass,
                  and like Homer Simpson's beard, it comes back instantly.

                  Are you sir, a masochist?
                  Me? I'm afraid to sleep outside for fear of a bamboo sprouting from my pants.


                  The green.
                  IT'S EVERYWHERE!!!!

                      It seems that the auctions are finished. Any other options?
