DR® Power Equipment Introduces a Durable Self-Propelled Mower to Last a Lifetime

VERGENNES, Vt., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DR® Power Equipment has been known for its quality, long-lasting products for decades, starting with their original "trimmer on wheels" that revolutionized yard care in the mid-1980's.  This year, just in time for spring mowing season, the company is announcing a new self-propelled lawn mower that is built with a level of quality and durability that is absent from most of today's lawn mowers.

Company CEO Joseph Perrotto says, "We wanted to build a walk-behind lawn mower like the ones we grew up with, mowers that were really built to last, not to be replaced every couple years."  The new DR® Self-Propelled 22" Mower has a deck made of cast aluminum that comes with a lifetime warranty.  It is equipped with a professional-quality Subaru OHV engine.  Ball-bearing mounted wheels not only make maneuvering simple, but last longer than standard wheel mechanisms, without the need for repair or replacement.  The self-propelled drive is adjustable to the operator's walking pace, so mowing is always easy and comfortable.

"The lifetime warranty on the deck is really unique," says Perrotto, "Most companies don't make products that are durable enough to warrant that these days. With the use of thin sheet metal or plastic parts on the rise, especially in the big-box stores, cracked or rusted-out decks have become a real problem."

The DR® Self-Propelled 22" Mower is the company's first foray into gas-powered walk-behind finish mowers.  Although they carry an array of popular Trimmer/Mowers, Field and Brush Mowers, and Z-Steer mowers, up until now, DR has shied away from the competitive world of lawn mowers.  With the DR Self-Propelled 22" Mower, they are confident that they can offer a product durable enough and with enough professional features to satisfy any homeowner.
