On the topic of lawn mowers and plow trucks, what's the consensus on a sidewalk plow as a personal driveway plow? I know of one for sale near here.

Canadian eh!!!

This one seems that it may be a good value. And I believe it's in you general area.

KUBOTA F3060 60" MOWER - $6500
I contacted the seller. He's not sure but thinks it's about a year 2000 model. It has 2900 hours and he said it's had a recent overhaul and a new mower deck. I may have to make a road trip (with trailer in tow) to go look at it.

I don't think even your sons would care for it doing a driveway. With it angled and once the berm gets so much mass, especially if it's wet snow, then you have to start plowing at a right angle to the berm to finish clearing the drive. A sidewalk plow has it's name for a reason.

Unfortunately PA is pretty far from WA. It is nice though. All I saw on CL the other day were two over used Deere front mowers with overly high asking prices.

I'm sorry for some reason I had you pegged fot the Pittsburgh area for some reason. I know a few other members were or are and you somehow got got tossed in.

So we were out at the house today. I took another look at the mower and snapped a picture of the deck. It definitely needs guards on those belts.

See a lot of that. Someone took them off to clean out the grass and debris. Instead of spending a couple of minutes putting them back its easier to just throw them in the corner! :hammer:

Go look in the corner for the guards. ;) Much safer to have them on. I "think" around here, dealers aren't allowed to sell used equipment unless the guards are in place.

I'd check with a dealer and/or the manufacturer. A lot of times, safety items are free or cheap.

We were just out at the house for the final inspection. While there, I located both belt guards for the mower deck. So that's good. I couldn't start it though as there's no battery.

So why didn't anyone tell me I could burn rubber with the tractor. That thing hauls a$$. I had to try it out this eve. The deck rattles and chunks but works great. It took me a half hour to mow most of the lawn.

So I want to replace the old weather cracked seat. Will any seat work? Or do they all have specific mountings?

Also, I plan on patching up and painting the engine hood cover.

Many aftermarket seats have relatively universal mounts but you'll need to consider the driver presence safety switch (if you get off when in operation, it shuts down). If you're going to a store for a new seat, take the old one with you and try to match things up.

I love that mower... :thumbup:

The deck is out front. The only way to have it. You will find much less use for your string trimmer, as you can mow up under stuff, some thing you simply can not do with a standard sit over the deck set up....

Do what it takes to get this one up and running. You will see what I mean when you do.
