Last cut of the year.

Recommended Posts

I last cut my grass on Sept 18th. On the 23rd I went in for a right knee replacement. Of course the ensuing 5 weeks have been the best grass growing weather of the whole season. Today I ventured out with the BigTen to do battle with the overgrown mess I call a yard. Tractor worked awesome. Cut heavy growth 6 to 8 in. grass in second gear without plugging discharge or bogging down blades.I did however have one minor problem.I didn't realize the left arm rest pad had fallen off till I found it with the mower on the next round.:(!. Knee seems to have held up OK even with all the gear shifting to mow around all my shrubs and trees....Dave

Marty; I have a hydro. My 919H has been my main mower for 19 years but it blew the crankshaft seal on the second cut of the year and I havn't got around to fixing it yet. I think I will have to rering it as there seems to be a lot of crankcase pressure buildup. Vent is clean and clear. I can't complain about it as this is the first repair needed since I began using it.I also have a 3314H that may end up as a mower tractor. Not sure yet...Dave

I'll have a deck on for at least another few weeks, for leaves, if nothing else. Snow doesn't really stick around here till at least Thanksgiving, though this morning I had 3" of snow on top of 3" of downed leaves. What a mess.
