Have you ever thought of taking one of those 'bugs' and making a little tow truck out of it? ...with little purple mars lights and antennae with flags.

In the first pic of the post with the new mower, is that a mower deck or a silver toilet seat leaning against it? Hard to scale it out........

Ken, can you post a photo of how you mount the lights on it?
I'm assuming you do, so no one see's you on it :D :bigrofl:

No lights John, sorry. But I am adding a few Rainbow flags ASAP. The NY gay pride parade is looking for lady bug ride on mowers. Shall I get one ready for you ? You'll have to supply your own a$$ less chaps though. I'm fresh out of those.

I'd rather cut with that 30" cut "silver toilet seat" then the 44" on my GT-6000 or one of the big a$$ decks on the Bolens large frames. IMO a single blade just cuts better.

I just got done switching the rears, and it cuts and runs great. Took longer then expected, but its 100 % done.

That extra rear end I had ALMOST made it to China on my last scrap run. Good thing I kept it. Saw new ones on eBay for $599.99

I'd personally never put that much into this mower. Guess some are willing too.

God knows I have a 100 come backs, but I'm biting my tongue, and playing nice. :D

 

P.S. but all I can see is 10 Village People types driving around like they were in a Shiners parade

Oops, I did it again.

I'm starting a lady bug farm ! Picked up another one yesterday on my way home from a job in Pa.
Guy had it in his front yard with a For Sale sign on it. $200 or best offer. I offered him $100 and he took it.

Starts rite up and runs great. Only two issues, drive belt is broken, and the gear shift handle is bent. I have a spare belt, and a little heat on the shifter will straighten it rite out. He was cutting a tab bit too close to a chain link fence and it hooked into the fence and twisted it.

He just put a new $71 battery in it two months ago. He gave me that receipt.

So once I start breeding these, anyone want one ? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377789704.918619.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1377789722.210199.jpg

I am curious as to what they will be when they grow up. How do you keep them protected from predators? Do you have a cage in the living room you keep them in?

Ken if it works best for what your doing then its the right piece for you.  Bigger is not always better.  In fact as you elude to bigger machines in more than a few circumstances are more trouble than they are worth.  I got a page in that book, mowing with the 60" deck on the 5020 is such a frustration on the lawn part of my property I dont use it out there anymore, nothing wrong with the job it does, it cuts great, its just to DANGed big to get around with and with the extra time for the extra trimming necessary its actually slower than just cutting it with a 42" deck and no trimming.

 

I use to have a Bolens rer for awhile, nice little machine and because most of em get bought by folks with small yards it was in Great condition and worked very well.

I thought you auditioned for hoarders already...

Ken, glad you found another one. Two weeks ago I was thinking about your "fleet"
This guy actually moved the sled... And Spun Out.
He didnt place, but they didnt have a featherweight class.

Picked up yet another ladybug sit on mower. I couldn't pass it up for $41.00

Ain't pretty but it runs and I'll just tuck it away for parts.

That is, unless Alan wants it. : ) ImageUploadedByTapatalk1379601729.301100.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1379601742.303432.jpg

Ok fine then. Thought you'd like one. Guess I'll have to find someone else to do the tug of war with next year at plow day. Lol
