Though manual and electric mowers are getting lots of attention as a way to battle high gas prices, at Cutting Edge Lawn Equipment in Lakeland, Fla., it's high-end riding mowers that are doing well.

"People are spending up to thousands more on high-quality lawn mowers," he says. "They are looking for a longer life span of their equipment."
