    Sweet! No more green shoes for you, HD! 38" Deck?!? I'd be able to do my lawn in about 10 minutes.

    LOL 2 lap and my lawn would be done. I'm ordering an old fashion reel push mower, no gas, no oil, no electricity.... just man power :)

    but my lawn is only 60' x 100' with a house in the middle.... I wish I had land enough to justify a rider

    I want that. Then I could hot-rod it, and put the mowing blades on top and replace them with helicopter blades. Tell me that wouldn't be the coolest thing ever to do with a monster like that!

    someday I shall do that......someday.....

    Right now I'm using an 11 year old, 12 horsepower craftsman on about 2 acres of grass. It gets the job done, except that every time i take a left turn the wheel nearly gets sucked into the blades.


    Oh lawn mower, the day you die, I die...

    This is by far one of TBs greatest threads ever. It's too bad we don't have yards here in New Orleans, or I'd show off my bad boy, too.

    Been watching a little too much Monster Garage, haven't we?

    ;)
     
  15. If I knew how, I'd post a picture of a John Deere LT 155. My wife gave me one for my 40th birthday a few years ago. I wish my grass would grow faster so I could mow it more often!

    Nothing runs like a Deere! (and they come in Green Bay Packer colors right off the line)

    I really like the Deere LT series. It was down to a Deere LT160 (the replacement for the LT155) and the Regent - my local JD dealer was a bit of a putz, so I went Simplicity. I like the full floating deck on the Sim, but a Deere is a Deere.

    Oh look, a ride to the prom!
     
  19. I watched that episode of monster garage and they started with the same car i have. Mine was the same color scheme and everything (white/white/black). It was kind of fun to see what i could do with my car if i got bored with it.
    ;) :D
