COOL they are good people. You got an idea when you're going to install it?

 

Looking like this coming week we can pump out the manure pit, so possibly the next week after.  Been working today on daughter Kaylin's car heads.  Got them ready to go back on her engine today.  Her boyfriend's stepdad is putting the engine back together.  I'll help what I can, but bending over an engine isn't easy at all for me now.

I AM WHIPPED!   Just came in to call it a day.  Went out to Dad's to refill his med dispenser, then came home & weedeated with our little Craftsman 18V cordless.  It's 4 or 5 years old and getting tired.  I tried for an hour to get the gasser weed whacker going & tossed it in the trash.  EZ pull start system it says......BULL.  Won't hardly spin the motor.  I am thinking of getting a Kobalt 40V cordless.  Huge battery, so ought to last a long time snipping weeds, plus it has a full 5 year warranty.  I am sick to death of gas powered weed eaters.

 My neck, back, and shoulders are killing me.  We said Friday night we should stay home today to rest, then we work our tales off!  Working on car V6 heads, attempting weed eater repair, mowing home yard, mowing barn/pit areas, sharpening mower blades, cleaning fish pond, and more.  LOL  Oh well, tomorrow I think we'll go somewhere so we CAN rest.  :D

I bought the Toro gas weedeater last year the one with the electric start u can buy as an extra. We'll see how that works after a couple of years. Also bought the Toro tiller so I can go down between the rows in garden and the same electric start is the only way to start it. The pull start went bad right a way. Seems they have an issue with there pull starts under the engine rather than on top.

Heading to Harbor Freight for a 44" rolling tool box for the new shop.  I may go by Lowes & look at the cordless Kobalt weed eater too.

Isn't that the truth of it all. Not sure what it is but once we get started doing stuff ,we just can't seem to stop. I'am with you on that as long as we go out and leave the yard and go some where ,thats the time we seem to actually rest. And I thought it was only me/us who did stuff like that. LOL

Hope you get a good box and maybe find a new weed-eater. I  switched to Stihl equipment a few years ago and I can't kill neither the gas blower or the weed-eater, bought both used and still running strong after 5 years.

I've got a weed eater brand weed wacker that is over 14 yrs old.  I used it on Friday for the first time this year and it took a few pulls but fired up and ran great.  Over the years I've replaced the pull rope a time or two, the primer bulb and the bottom half of the shaft because the bushing wore out but I replaced it with a shaft from one that had been abused.  Also replaced the fuel lines and filter.  You know you can put a new carburetor on one for around $20 - $30 and that usually solves the problems.

My 4 cycle troy bilt trimmer got a new carb/etc last year but the so called easy pull system is junk. I can pull the rope all the way out and it may or may not spin the motor at all. I even replaced the springs.
