Good deal! Great to save $'s! I go out of my way to save money when I can, even if it means hard work.

Ran this thing for 8 or 9 hrs. over the last 2 days seems to have a bit more traction with the new drive tires, the rear tire doesn't steer as well though, the tread pattern is different than the original one. But overall better than before.

Broke one of the blades and the center spindle on this a while back, today I got replacement parts for it, $30. for the blade and $160. for the spindle plus tax. $214. total.
I never did find the piece that came off.

Got one more grass cut to go so I better get this thing fixed.

Doug, I can't believe you are still mowing. Those parts were not cheap.

I like to have the grass short for the winter, gives me a little more time in the spring before I have to cut, pretty wet early in the year and I don't like getting stuck in the soft spots.

I went to the local dealer, good guys but they brought the spindle up from the states somewhere and everybody that touches it adds a bit to the price. I probably could have bought the part for 1/2 the price, shipped it up here and still paid less but would of taken longer. I wanted one more cut for sure this year and this way it's ready for next year.

Broke this thing almost in have yesterday, frame cracked and it now twisted and sagging in the middle just in front of the steering wheel. Happened when in use 1/2hr away from finishing the cut on my lawn, was able to limp it back to front of the garage, now waiting for a visit with the welder. Hope to be able to fix before it's needed to cut again.
