Well as much rain as we have had,my lawns were getting really long,so I decided to mow anyway.I mowed for an hour and a half or so and all of a sudden my power steering went away,and about the same moment the forward movement started getting jumpy.I stopped it and opened up the hood,and there was one of the hydraulic lines pissing fluid all over everything.
I get it to the garage to get a better look and see that the line (hose) has chafed through on the motor mount.
Two days of fine weather ahead and I am going to have to wait until Tuesday because Monday is a holiday ,that is assuming that Kubota has the part in stock.It's a shaped hose with 90 degree bends,or I would just get one made up.

I hear ya Maynard. Yesterday I just had a few minutes before lunch to weed eat. Had to take the carb apart & clean the crud. Got that fixed & went to start it....rope broke. Tore it down & put a new rope in it. Finally got to weedeat a minute or so....then ran out of twine! I was out of time, so no weed eating done. I did later rewind the spools of it & my electric weed eater. I could finish the weed eating today....but na! LOL

Not sure it this would work but NAPA stores ,( not sure if all ) can make up odd ball p/s hoses by cutting the crimped sleeve off the old steel ends and recrimping with a new hose . Al

Maynard, sorry to hear it. Went to plow my buddies garden today and lost a tie rod end. Held together with twine for the rest of the job. :(

Sorry to hear about your troubles Maynard! Hope you get it up and running soon!

Dan, that's the way things always seem to work for me too! I'm sure the weeds will wait till you've got the time and a working trimmer LOL!

Mike, you have an awful streak going there. I don't think we have a 'look what I broke today' thread.
Maynard, sorry to hear of your problems. Hope you get things fixed.

I can understand. But if Mike keeps breaking things, he's going to need a thread like that for himself.

Daniel, I know the feeling your talking about. Between home and work, there are days you could write a novel about the things that got broken, LOL
