    A co-worker of my brothers was mowing with a zero turn mower. He went down a hill and the drive tires broke loose. It almost cost him his life when it rolled over him. I can only imagine what would...

    You have my attention. Couple of questions. How big of a hurry will you be in to have everything moved and do you have a way to load on your end. I can move something like that but may need a short...

    I wish that my shop had that much open space. I'm the only one that ever works in it so all I need is room for the machines and myself. As to no chips, some people actually clean the work area after...

    I bought a Husqvarna mtz-61 about 5 years ago. It has a 61 inch deck on it and I think it is rated at about 5 acres an hour. It was about $6,200 plus tax. I also had looked at Skag mowers but the...

    I haven't read all 14 pages of this thread but I do have this thought. The USA has had over 28% of all COVID 19 deaths worldwide and we only represent about 5% of the world population. So of course...

    I wonder how long it takes to paint it. I've read that painting the Mackinac bridge in Michigan has never really stopped since it was built in the 50's. No idea how much paint it takes to paint it...

    Some day you may run something where it would come in handy and to find a different one will probably cost you a lot more than fifty bucks. I'd keep it.

    Yesterday I walked out in the back yard and saw something laying on the grass. I figured it was probably some trash that blew in from the road. Nope. It was a twenty dollar bill and two fives that...
