  1. I have tried the manual lawn mowers before as they are just too hard to get it working right, it does require a large amount of physical exercise and they did not deal with tall weeds which made it get jammed  a bit. You need level ground and lighter thinner type grasses for the manual in my opinion. Therefore I switched to the electric cordless rotary lawn mowers and to honest they do the job perfectly with a lot less effort and having no cords or fuel meets all my needs, does a fairly good job with collecting the clippings also
