A friend of mine gave me a running 2186 Cub Cadet. I had helped this friend out last year when her property got flooded. She wanted to pay me but I told her she had enough problems dealing with her loses to flood damage and she didn't owe me anything. Fast forward to this year and she is moving and doesn't need her Cub Cadet anymore so she thought I should have it. She has kept it in nice running condition, it mows well and also came with the trailer. I mowed with it and it does do a nice job. My old John Deere 112 garden tractor that I mowed with before is getting pretty tired and now maybe I can lay it up and rebuild it next summer.
Here are a couple of pictures of my new to me Cub Cadet.

That was a nice way to repay you for your own acts of kindness. See, it DOES pay to be a good guy!

Yep, it's great to have friends & neighbors who appreciate acts of kindness too! Too often we can be taken for granted.

That's a great free GT. It was nice for you to have done the favor the way you did. It was nice of her to think of you when she moved. Hope if she is a neighbor, you get just as nice a one.

That's a great little mower! Free is always my favorite price range too! It is wonderful to have a neighbor and a friend like that. Thanks for being a stand-up guy Mike!
