Even if it's the wrong color, I think this picture on a different forum really makes the point... [img]http://home.woh.rr.com/hansgeisterfer/photos/johndeerex585/craftsmanlift2.jpg[/img]

Kent, One of those green things would look good in a bucket. Can't you borrow one from a neighbor?
Afraid not -- I've got about all of them converted to Simplicities... :D Only one that isn't on this street that I know of is an Ingersoll bigger than any of mine.

That pic reminds me of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"... He took the load up to the top of Mount Crumpet, and there he stood ready and waiting to dump it!!! Heck, the Grinch was even green too, wasn't he...

It might be one of those marketing things. Years ago, there were two ways of sitting and mowing your grass, a garden tractor with the optional mower deck or a riding lawn mower with no options. Toro had quite a few RLM's as did some others. But I suppose that wasn't he-man enough and there was a cross over of words. I have a good friend that has a 20 year Craftsman 12HP RLM along with a snow blade. Five years I replaced the engine and two years ago I replaced the transmission. He swears by it and surprisingly there are no frame fractures and the mower deck is fine. I am not doing an endorsement for Sears, but if you know what you have and know the limitations, you can can a fair amount of life. Most people think their stuff is a garden tractor and then right out of the gate they try to pull shrubs up or some other silly thing and then can't figure out why they got the dopiest looking lawn in town.
