How thick can a scythe cut?
Used correctly, scythes always cut lower than three inches.
Are scythes good for cutting grass?
A scythe will mow wet and/or thick grass that would bog down and stall a power rotary or hand reel mower. Use the scythe to clear an overgrown lawn before using a power or hand reel mower.
Is a scythe better than a strimmer?
With the strimmer, it would cut the long grass easily enough, but after a couple of swipes you were up to your knees in tumbled stalks, and couldn’t see where you were strimming. The scythe moves them all neatly to the left, so you can see your next stroke clearly.
