19. I did see one of these in Sears today.

The strings look to be rather high. Maybe I just didn't don't realize how high all blades are, since you normally do not see the blades, but I had the feeling it would not cut very low. Or maybe it is adjustable down and I didn't really notice. I was surprised that it didn't look to have much safety features---the strings were visible, so there wasn't much to keep them from throwing things that they hit, or hurting someone. But it was also expensive and I have a feeling that you have a lot more maintenance and cost with replacing the strings.

I don't think that I will find everything that I want in a push mower. There does not seem to be a mower that is lightweight (no self propel) and electric start.....although they do say that many mowers now are "easy start" with no choke and not at hard to pull and start on the first pull (yeah, right). The only thing I have not yet found in the stores is a cordless electric, and I would like to see one before I decide.
