Are you still getting parts for your lesco 30 without any problems? That machine has been out of production for a while now!

No problem so far! most of the parts are available at any hardware store (except the tines) I cant see why the machine never really caught on? they are easy to use, fast and very easy to work on. I put a 40ld weight on the front on the front of mine and it greatly improved the cores. I was thinking about buying a couple plugr's but cant see spending the $ when my lesco 30's will probably last 4 ever!

I purchased two of them brand new in 1985, still running them as my primary walk behinds to this day. I just keep replacing the blades,bushings and tires. New motors & paint every 5 years or so, i just replaced the rear rims last season after 2 decades!

The closed blades are industry standard for the most part. I'm going to measure the blades on my woods aerator,i bet they are the same.

Counting down the days, just 11 days before I kick off as well. I have been on vacation and I am ready to get back in the groove. I had my kick off yesterday, where I re-did my home for the year. As always, all my neighbors loved it, and asked when I could get to their lawns.....

personally, we could have winter another 3 months and that would be ok with me.

I'm in no hurry

Snow free until 2 days before your first scheduled application. Been too easy this year, something is going to sneak up and bite us.

I am in PA and we had a very mild winter but I thought several storms ended up dumping in Mass. Didn't you guys get a decent amount this year?
