NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Zack

... and then suddenly the thing went all like BOOOOOOM!



Do you think I can maybe just put a patch on this?
Well, I supposed that the lesson for me here is to never inflate a 7-year-old tire to its rated-pressure.



So, the zeroturn gets to sit and wait for two new front tires to arrive; the lawn has been too wet to use the rider for mowing anyway; I used a regular power mower to do the front yard, the rest of the yard can wait.

The battery needed some coaxing to bring it back to life; dunno if it will make it to the end of the mowing season; this is the tractor's second battery; they only seem to last 3-years each.  After sitting all winter, the engine started without too much persuasion.

I'd really like to put a mulch kit on the mower deck ... naaah ... maybe next year.
