Cool article I also use a sythe to cut cover crops and such. I really like it over a weed eater. The part I find most enjoyable is when I'm do e my hands aren't numb from vibrations and my ears ringing from the loud annoying noise from the engine. I also like that my cut material isn't thrown in every which direction 20ft.

I cant wait to buy my own reaper as well. My idea is to use no power tools on my small farm, i love silence and also work by hand. More people should take up thes wonderful tools.
