in the Tractor Port. Have a lady about my age bringing me her mowers & such for repair. So far we have fixed a couple push mowers, a golf cart, and some weed eaters. Yesterday she brought three riding mowers over. One was a JD that just needed the water drained out of the bowl. Told her to quit using ethanol gas in them. The other two are newer Craftsman riders. Both had the LH spindles go bad. Gotta order parts for them. Found them online at a decent price.

She has been looking for someone to fix them. Last guy in town she took one to charged her $140 to sharpen blades and put a screw in. I will probably be close to that amount for all three of these as it is all simple fixes.

Nice to help someone else out and enjoy the rewards that repairing things brings.  Does she collect lawn mowers or buy and sell them?

These mowers are newer ones, so I think collecting is out. She lives outside of town, so may have acreage to mow. I'm not interested into doing a bunch of work for other folks, but will help out some when needed. And she pays with cash!

When I first read the title I thought you were getting the run around on something.  Glad to see it is more on the positive side.  Nice to get some spending cash.   :thumbs:
