So I am in lawn mower purgatory.
I have 4 mowers, here is their status:
-Weed-eater push gas mower: having issues keeping running, hard to start, runs rough, dies often
-Murray riding mower: mowing deck supports rusted so it scalps the lawn. i removed the mower deck and use as a lawn tractor with the dumping trailer i bought.
-Ariens riding mower: lots of problems with broken spindle and blades. recently I’ve replaced:
-drive belt (belt became wedged between a pulley and the axle and I could not remove it so had to cut it and pull it out).
-mower belt (ran over a tomato cage which wrapped itself around the blades and ended up burning the belt down)
-Craftsman mower: state mostly unknown, need to get it working, now a bed for a litter of kittens. Yes kittens. 4 kittens that look like a white/black cat we see wandering around the area. Their eyes are still closed, only about 4" long. I'm going to keep an eye on them and see how they do.
i just purchased an electric mower to replace the weed-eater mower and a Cub Cadet wheeled line trimmer to act like a brush-hog so I can cut back the blackberries/grass as it grows.
