Residue? Do you mean manure?... AKA- fertilizer? Sheep manure is the best
fertilize on earth (tied with rabbit poop) but it makes grass grow very
Goats taste good on a barbeque, but they prefer rough forage (the shrubs,
trees, vines, flowers, etc)... not very good for mowing grass.
Buy short-legged cows to keep grass in check. Shetland ponies are fairly
good grass eaters too (and they will pull a home shop built wooden hay
wagon, a traction driven sickel bar mower, hay rake, etc.)... but not good
to eat, unless you like tough dog food.
I borrowed a friend's bigger chainsaw when I was putting in fence
posts. About 600 fence posts that I was putting points on before
hammering them in to the ground. My little Craftsman/Poulan with a 16"
blade and a small engine got a lot better hours per gallon than his
bigger saw. I keep wanting to replace the saw but it is so cheap to
run and it refuses to break. Stupid 25 year old saw.
I bought a 5' used Befco finish mower for behind my John Deere 870. It
mowed fast but made an awful racket. I took it apart to figure where
all the noise was from. Worn bearings cracked deck, loose sheet metal
and some broken welds on the blade shield sheet metal. It may take me
weeks to finish welding, patching and replacing bearings but it should
be quieter when I am done. I guess since I paid a third of new and I
do not pay myself any wages for hours of cleanup and welding time,
parts at $200 I am ahead? I really undervalue my free time labor as
rebuilding a mower deck is really not fun. It might be more fun if I
had bought a 60 gallon air compressor instead of 20 gallon compressor.
Sandblasting when you have 2 minutes of good air is pretty slow.
Arizona is right behind you.
I remember the first time I paid $2.00 a gallon was in Beverly Hills, CA. .
Jill and I were looking for a museum and got lost. We stopped at a little
gas station and while I was pumping my gas a Bentley pulled up and a very
attractive gal got out to fill her tank. She was wearing a see thru gauze
top with no bra. I'm lucky I didn't spill my gas all over. I think I did
drool on my shirt. Jill just sat in the car laughing at me.
