9. I like the older models, sometimes with other jobs, sometimes not. Self-propelled, but

 

you don't have to push them unless they stop working. (But that's the case with any of them, eh?). They run on ice tea, it seems, and sometimes are useful when one needs to carry in the groceries.

Being older we frequently have shared experiences, so they are easier to talk with as well.

It's been a lot of years now since we have been able to afford such a lawn mower, so I have taken over that duty, but perhaps your situation is a little different.

As far as the actual mowing device, I like the Toro pictured above. It has been a pretty easy starter, and not too heavy to push when one isn't pulling the handle to engage the front-wheel drive.
