It has been podadora for as long as I can remember and before that they were called chivos de pasto alimentado.


Cesped es muy espanol.

So we went to Jocotepec. That place on the right only has expensive lawnmowers for sale now. In the past their repair service was excellent.
We went back a few blocks towards. On the opposite side of the street a few blocks away is the Stihl store. They had a good selection and we bought one there. They don't do service.
