    Every Sunday I mow the lawn.

    After that, I always use my leaf blower to clean/blow anything off the driveway, walkway, etc.

    I don't do this early enough to be a nuisance (normally 830-9am) but late enough to ask...is no one else going to maintain their shit or even wake up?

    Neighbor to my right hasn't mowed his front lawn since he moved in.

    Neighbor to my left has a landscaper tend to it as they don't live there yet and have deliveries every week or so. They're still furnishing the place with all new stuff.

    Other neighbors...well they're as one of you guys said...stupid cause they do shit mid-day when it's over 90 degrees.

    That was a crazy story. Been awhile since I looked into it but I think they only found some remains of a couple of them?

    Speaking of maintenance, I need to buy a pressure washer.

    You guys use one at all? I used to at my old house.

    I have the second cheapest Ryobi from the box hardware stores. It does alright for washing the trucks and stains off the sidewalk. Biggest complaint is that it seems pretty sensitive to house water pressure and will cavatate if it's not getting enough flow but that could have been the spigot I was using at the old house. I work around it by filling the tank with water so it has enough lol

    Definitely beats paying $30/mo at the car wash or so like I did before

    sounds like a reasonable time to me, I forgot, did you get an electric mower?

    I tend to mow when I have time, lunchtime if I can. As long as the mower is charged I can be done in 45 minutes.

    Ahh damn, I too had Ryobi (from Home Depot) that I rarely used so I can't pass judgement on its performance.

    Good to know though!

    And yeah I had my wife cancel her membership for car washes, mainly cause it was in the town she used to live in. It's like oh yeah, unlimited washes per month for $xx but how often do you actually go? :rofl:

    Yep!

    EGO electric.

    Love the way it cuts and it's light for being full-sized.

    Thought this was really cool; I've bought stuff from them since last year but had to make an account when I bought a cylinder from them -

    Ahh nice

    I've yet to charge the battery and I've mowed the front once a week since moving here (so 5-6 times).

    Mowed the back once.

    Still on the same charge.

    Dang. I can do my front + back on one charge of the 5aH battery. If it’s wet or thick I might have to plug in the weed whacker battery to finish up.


    Not having to dick around with oil changes, carburetors and gas cans makes me happy. <30 seconds to unfold, plug in and start mowing

    All my Milwaukee batteries state their capacity, but don't recall the EGO listing it on the battery?

    You're making me want to check now...cause I don't plug the mower in either. I would have to pull the battery and charge it in a separate cradle.
