I Mowed Lawns for $3.00 per Lot; My Lawn Mower Cost $129.95 in 1976

The price of a good lawn mower has doubled since 1976; not bad actually.  The paycheck for the lawn has increased 20 fold or 20X or 20 x 3 = $60.00 plus per yard.

Today, a kid can buy a good Troy Built lawn mower for $269.95, but instead of $3.00, he can now earn $60.00 plus for the same lawn. Simply amazing.  Why I don’t see more kids pushing lawn mowers around town is beyond my comprehension.

I used to mow 15 lawns each summer.  Thus 15 x $60 x 10 mowings for the summer equals $9,000.00.  I want to be a kid again!
