The deck went on easy for me, as I had someone else put it on. There's a younger guy mows one of the neighbor's yards. Turns out he uses the neighbor's rider to do her lawn, after her husband passed. I asked him if he could cut our lawn and he came by the following week. I already had the plow off, it came off easy but hurt my back so had to take the rest of the day off, was glad for him to put the deck on. Then he cut the grass but wasn't so smooth with the hydro. i think he got kind of beat up and i don't think he's coming back. Here people just kind come when they want... or not.
Now i'll have to take the deck back off, scored a garden plow. not a big deal as i didn't have a chance to sharpen the blades before the guy came to help me with the deck and cutting. Also i picked up a rolling storage shed, it looks big enough to be able to get the deck on and off up in the air, so maybe i can do it myself. Here is a pic of the new mobile storage unit
Maybe i can even sharpen the blades with the deck up on the trailer, will see...
Here is a pic of the new plow, from the ad
I picked it up yesterday, a 5 hour road trip in good weather to a place i haven't been before. stopped at Mrs. B's general store for directions and a blueberry soda. It was a good trip and the plow was lighter than i expected tho i got help loading it into the trunk of the Vic.
The brinly cleaned up nice with a light coat of WD. For now it is under wraps as it is raining out. I'm hoping to store it in the trailer when not in use.
