We've also got a quarter acre. I cut it with a 1965 Snapper 308X rear engine rider that my great uncle Paris bought in 1967. It'd been owned by a golf course before that, they traded it in, the equipment shop re-powered it and he used it until he died in 1989. After his death it got pushed under a spruce tree on the farm until I retrieved it in 2008. I re-powered it with an engine from an '88 Snapper rear engine rider in 2009 and have cut the grass with it ever since. Its even still got one original 1965 tire on it. Probably needs a new blade and rubber drive whatsis but otherwise its great. -Curt From: Max Dillon via Mercedes <email@example.com> To: Mercedes Discussion List <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Max Dillon <dillonm...@gmail.com> Sent: Saturday, August 15, 2015 12:39 PM Subject: Re: [MBZ] Mower head gasket update Nice! Let us know how it cuts.
My lot is only about a quarter acre, I've got a push mower that lasted fifteen years now. Finally put on a new blade this summer, and I think it may finally be time to overhaul the carburetor, but this thing just keeps going.
