I'm curious as to where you guys are with this. I have my theories but figured why not post a poll and find out.
I love to operate equipment, always have. It brings a bit of pride to accomplish something that once completed, you can stand back and admire. Mowing the grass isn't building a bridge or digging out stumps to re-claim some more yard, but it's something. To some people it's a huge thing to have the lawn looking always neat and tidy. I personally enjoy running my tractor to cut the grass, but in the end you can see nice straight lines and smooth manicured looking lawn. Bonus. It's the seat time and the end result that I enjoy.
