Push mower or riding mower?
I grew up in the country and our lawn took 3 hours to cut on a riding mower. Oddly, I loved cutting the grass. Felt like a weird form of meditation haha
I use an EGO electric push mower and I love it. It takes me 20 to 25 minutes to mow. I listen to podcasts while I zone out and mow. There's always something else to be done out there so I appreciate having some non-screen time to get dirty.
I grew up in SWMO on a farm with a similarly sized yard it sounds like. It was a good 2.5 to 3.5 hour mow.
