Some tools are just timeless classics. We often assume that a more modern version of a tool is superior to some of the older, but tried and true, models. This isn’t always the case, as you can see here.
The scythe is:
- Faster at clearing tall weeds
The weedwacker, which is:
- Incredibly noisy, contributing to noise pollution
- Gas powered, which contributes to air pollution
- More expensive
- Harder to repair
Let’s not assume newer is better. Give the classics another try.
