Probably only a handful of mowing days before its time to pack them away for winter and drag the blowers out.

 

This was the 2016 Mow team, It changes every year :D

Just took the decks off of my mowers and in the process of going through them before I put them up.Found a bad idler on the 1 deck and a spindle in need of some attention.

I cant tell you how many people say that LOL :D

 

I tell them its only dangerous if you dont know what your doing, every time I use this I smile and imagine  the facial  expression and shear panic of the customers if this was selling today at the Lowes or Home Depot!  :rolling:

lol

 

And my neighbors say I'm nuts for having a 10 1/4" carbide tipped circular saw blade on my big old Homelite weed whacker.It will take saplings and tree branches off like nothing.Large weeds and Burdock don't stand a chance lol.

Last winter I mowed the first week of December. I could have mowed again a week later but I refused to out of principle. Usually my last mowing is Thanksgiving weekend depending on how aggressively I applied fall fertilizer.

The death wheel! Lol. I think I was one of the people that commented on that crazy thing when I stopped by for parts. That thing is wicked cool and dangerous! Not so much for the operator, but more so for anything in its path. If they still made those today, Bolens would have all sorts of law suits against them. Shows how much things have changed in this world since back then.

I was going to say that it looked pretty dangerous to use. But, it's called common sense while using it, which most people don't seem to have. All the new stuff today is pretty much "idiot" proof. They have to be with all the lawsuits around today. The world is not getting any smarter, that's for sure!

I love it. The fact that the engine is running and the wheel-o-death is spinning ever so menacingly, awaiting it's next victim... just in time for Halloween. LOL Nothing like giving product safety lawyers a big middle finger and making ambulance chasers rejoice all in one photo!

They'd cringe at the exposed PTO belt alone. No need to even mention the blade.

Thanks for the pics! Nope, not many days left this year to mow.

 

Funny how they didn't incorporate any sort of guard around the blade either. Definitely something you want to wear eye protection with!

I'm not ready to retire the mower deck yet.  Working on mounting my 8hp TracVac up.  Getting ready for the leafs to fall!
