Just because your old lawnmower no longer works doesn’t mean it has to go to the trash. With a little creativity, you can repurpose your old lawnmower and extend its service. (h/t: HomesteadSurvivalSite.com.)
A typical lawnmower has about 7 feet of starter cord that makes for a highly durable rope. Here are some ways to reuse it:
Lawnmowers usually have seven blades, but other brands may have more or less. Considering how tough these can be, it’d be a waste to just throw them away.
Just because the machine itself doesn’t work doesn’t mean the engine has failed, too. If the engine remains functional, you can still find some use for it.
Don’t waste the oil in your old lawnmower and reuse it instead. (Related: 23 Items you’re probably throwing away but SHOULDN’T.)
Removing the handlebar from your lawnmower can be tricky, but there are tutorials online on how to do it. Once you have separated this from the rest of the machine, just remove any dust and rust and you’re ready to reuse it.
The handlebar makes for a great wall rack for your towels and clothes. Just attach it to your wall with nuts and bolts.
The dry glass in your grass collection bag can be reused into a natural fertilizer or as part of your compost. If you’re using it for the latter, remember to add some brown material to help the grass decompose properly.
If you have livestock, you can also store the dry grass as a feed. This is especially a great idea if you have not treated your grass with any chemicals that may endanger your animals.
Be creative with your old equipment by getting great ideas from Survival.news.
