    NNC <--> Mower Build

    Though about this a lot last year, as I would take a break from mowing the yard to rehydrate. Finally pulled the trigger. For now, one water bottle is sufficient, but as you can see, I'm now ready for July and August, too!

    Either you have a really big yard, or it gets way hotter there than it does here. No way would I need more than one...um.... water bottle

    If you're using GPS, are the lines all straight?

    GPS? You need to know where in your yard you are mowing?

    So far, we do. Hired a guy for a while last year, but fired him after his work made it appear he HAD been drinking vodka while attempting to mow. Besides, the "pros" around here all seem to be about how fast they can complete the job, which I understand to a point, but they beat the hell out of the the 50+ cedar posts on our fence.

    I hate push mowers. Never again will I own one of those torture devices.


    I've got a 94 Snapper 13 horsepower. It will probably explode at any moment but considering what I paid for it, it owes me absolutely nothing and runs damn good considering.

    Your 94 Snapper is made of carbon by Trek?

    It is made of stamped steel. I did somehow manage to put the blade through the deck on the edges when I hit some ****. Need to weld that back up.

    Does Framesaver make like a giant vat I can dip the whole mower into? I even store the damn thing outside uncovered. It hasn't rained here in 3 years anyway so it hasn't mattered much.
