The squash / pumpkin area (about 20 by 70) - vines and weeds. Once the
vines spread I can't get the tiller through to keep weeds down so they kinda
take over - but since the squash keep growing we don't worry about it. So
now everything is picked and there are a lot of weeds 3' high and some 5 and
6' high. I mow through real slow and after a week go over it again. Then I
will plow it under and in the spring just disc and till . I thought of
Clark as my Wheelhorse was chewing up those big weeds <chuckle>
Ok guys let me update you, again.
The new lawntractor, the one Sears replaced FREE OF CHARGE went back to
Sears when they delivered my new one, free of charge,
The new lawntractor has been the F'ing fantastic !! ( I know some of you
don't wanna hear that)
But the replacement lawntractor has performed FLAWLESS.
BTW Kathy likes it so much, she has taken over the mowing, and towing the
lawn sweeper to take up the leaves and pine needles.
I'm now fixing the barn and winterizing the house and she's mowing!!!!!
I don't mind the ribbing (as I roll my eyes)
It was a pain at first but I really am happy I bought the mower I did, as
Kathy now loves to do the lawn. (that's really nice)
Now If I can get her to mow down the steep hills, I'd be all set.
Put the thing in low gear/low speed, keep the foot off the brake. Slow,
but uneventful downhill. Once she experiences it, she might try a higher
gear/higher speed. If she's told to go perpendicular to a steep hill while
on the mower, don't blame her for not doing so.
