    Bwhahaha. It makes me laugh to hear all you notherners talk about the weather. Come live down in the swamps for a bit and you willknow what yard work is like. I have to mow at least once a week just to keep the weeds down. I am having a heck of a time right now as the zero turn keeps messing up and it takes sears at least a week to get out here. I am usually wishing for temps to drop into the 60's or god be good the 50's. I really would like to wear a jacket once in awhile instead of shorts adn t-shirts all year. Although it has been raining cats and dogs down here for the last few weeks I can't even break out the lawn mower or I will be sliding every where. It just starts to dry and then it rains again. I haven't even been able to make time to go get a thunder chicken yet.

    You got me on the acrerage GD. I only take care of 6 acres. I should have gotten a better mower but the sears ZT was the only one in my porce range. It has been a trooper though I abuse the heck out of that thing and so far only pulleys and belts have given up the ghost. Mostly belts though.

    for the cost of some of these 0-turn mowers a guy could buy a new(er)car.i think mine was in the 10,000 to 12,000 range but like you i beat the heck out of that thing and it is a worker.once a year belt replacement and blades....no pullies going out yet but i did have to replace my PTO clutch 2 years ago and that was 400.00.every 2 years all tires need replaced.i try to mow twice a week......................when i can lol

    If the end is comming, it'll catch me mowing. Growing about an inch a day. And too wet to get the rototiller in the ground, time to plant the garden.
