Jodi Marks: You know, inside your garage is premium real estate for storage. You’ve got your cars, your bicycles, you may even have a refrigerator and a freezer, and you certainly want to get your lawn mower in there. And Shea and I have stumbled on a really good lawn mower that can store very easily, right?
Shea Pettaway: We have a great mower that’s made by Toro. Briggs & Stratton has made this engine to be stored vertically.
Jodi Marks: Wow, that’s fantastic. So let’s show what happens. With this mow-and-stow, what you do is you release the handle, you flip it over and you make sure you lock it into place. Let’s make sure it’s locked—OK. Now you take off the leaf bag. And, Shea, let’s lift this up to show just what you can do for storage.
Now, I know you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, kids. What about the gasoline and the oil? Is it going to leak out?” And the short answer is no, it’s not, because of the way the engine is designed.
Shea Pettaway: Another great feature is that it’s accessible, so you can sharpen the blade or even clean it.
Jodi Marks: See, and that’s fantastic. And I love this profile. Makes it so easy to store up against the garage wall, and you’ve got a great lawn mower that doesn’t take up a lot of space.
