Ride-On Reel Mower
Photos of “riding” reel mowers have appeared on social media over the past few years as a joke. But combining a bike with a manual mower can work, says Leroy Martin, who had one built to prove it can be done.
    Keeping the blades sharp is what makes it work, he says about the “Bower” that he had Martindale Welding of Martindale, Penn., make for him.
    Martin had the front wheel from a bicycle removed and the welder made a bracket for the mower to attach to the bike’s wheel stem.
    Martin says it works well and provides a good workout, but there are limits. “You have to mow wide because you can’t turn sharply,” he notes.
