    Looks to me like the title is wrong. Seems like he came up with a good solution on how to mow around his pond.

    Looks like a great idea indeed. Better than the ropes I've seen some folks use.
    Shouldn't you be at work?

    That system wouldn't work for me as my wife wouldn't come out and pull the starter cord...

    I agree. Not the way to do it. Too much manual labor involved pulling that mower up and down the slope. Now if he attached that long handle to a tractor and made it pull the mower up and down the slope that would be good way
