Bayer 704080A All In One Lawn Weed &
As a publisher-reviewer, I review galore equipments, and now it’s the turn of lawn mowers.
Looking at lawn mowers from a buyer’s angle, I tried to list my expectations. Firstly, the mower ought to do what it’s meant to do, i.e., mow lawns efficiently. Next, it ought to fulfill the promise the vendor makes to potential buyers. And most importantly, the price ought to be reasonable and competitive.
Cutting a long story short, I zeroed in on a popular brand of lawn mowers – Husqvarna.
Do They Have Enough Models?
You need to make a basic choice amongst walk-behind and ride-on mowers. The size of your lawn and how often times you mow it must support you determine which one you want. Some users may take factors, such as mulching ability, and side discharge, into account, before deciding.
Husqvarna offers walk-behind mowers in various variants: the push type, the self propelled type, electrical mowers, and battery operated mowers.
Ride-on mowers have more maneuverability and the driver has a good view of the front. These mowers come with a front mounted cutting deck and are best suitable for more spectacular lawns with long grass. The bagging and collection facility prevents the cut grass and weeds from spreading into the lawn. Side ejection and rear ejection choices are also available.
Does Steering Matter?
Front wheel steering warrantees good traction and braking; rear wheel steering offers good tracking when reversing uphill and also projects the rear division when turning. Husqvarna has an articulated steering option, with a bio-clip cutting desk that causes leaves to be turned to fine mulch.
How Much Power Do You Need?
Husqvarna’s Walk-Behind Mowers range from 4.5 HP to 5.5 HP, while Riding Mowers are 18 HP to 26 HP. Husqvarna’s YTH yard tractors feed on tall grass. This mower range comes with features like step-through fender design, hydrostatic transmission, cup holders, and decks to mulch, discharge or bag. And a Briggs & Stratton engine, to boot.
Do You Really Need An Auto Mower?
If you are lazy, the automati mower may genuinely make you lazier still, as it does everything for you. You don’t have to walk behind or ride a mower. All you have to do is make a boundary by pinning a wire to the ground. Then you put the automati mower in the middle and it mows.
If you think a tree on your lawn specially with origins above the ground might harm your automati mower, the manufacturer assures not to worry. The collision sensors, they say, not only stop it, but also help reverse the mower when it comes lightly in contact with objects. (I invite any person with real experience to testify this)
The running cost is reasonably low. Depending on the size of the lawn it may cost up to $25 per year for electricity. Also, it is emission-free and makes almost no noise.
What About Maintenance? Warranty? Accessories?
Northern Tool offers toll free tech support through it is 50 outlets in 11 states. So, you have spares and service within easy reach, with a 2 – 3 years extendable warranty, for constituents and labor. Also, you may choose from a wide range of accessories: lawn aerators, tail mowers, tow behind sprayers, tow behind lawn sweeps, manure spreaders and industrial tools trailer carts.
How when it comes to the Price?
They are the best value for cash as far as I’ve seen: riding mowers cost from $2800 – 3600 and walk-behinds, $300 – 600. Of course, they likewise come with finance schemes.
How good are they really, taking all elements into account?
Popular Mechanics has ranked Husqvarna the best mower of 2007.

this stuff feeds crabgrass
By Michael G. Deep
This stuff works great, but only on opposite day. This product does NOT kill crabgrass. I have reapplied the product to the point that my real grass is browning out, but the crabgrass isn’t touched. I actually have more of a crabgrass problem after using this. This guy at work (Slade) told me this and now he is laughing at me. Don’t get laughed at, skip this product!

Killed weeds but not crabgrass
By K. Gerber
It worked well on all of our weeds except the crabgrass. The crabgrass got stressed out for a few days but then it was fine. Granted, we’ve got a large patch of very healthy and well established crab grass. It didn’t harm our buffalo grass at all. We’re disappointed though about the crab grass.

Slow but steady wins the race
The Bayer All in one Crabgrass Killer killed ALL of the crabgrass in my lawn after just one THOROUGH and FULL DOSE application. I did not do the Ready Mixed but bought the concentrate and used a large pump sprayer – just be sure to mix carefully…but it did take 2-3 weeks for the crabgrass to fully die out.It worked even on my FULLY mature and totally overgrown crabgrass lawn and it did not kill my Bermuda – just be aware that my Bermuda turned a little yellow-green for a week or so and then came right back nice and green. I would highly recommend this if you have 2-3 weeks to wait. Slow and steady WINS over crabgrass!
