It works good but its not SS so I make sure the fertilizer is blowed out well and shoot it with a little WD before I store it

Well i was also going to ask about the tow behind spreader but since thats been covered.... How do you like that little hobby welder and what did it run you if you don't mind me asking.

Nice shop you got there, looks nice and clean.

Looks good...............but that Deere mower there needs some air in that tire or you will be leaving an ugly cut!

Looks nice. One question though. How do your parents like you taking up their WHOLE garage? My parents are mad enough about me just using up the "extra" space, but still have room for both the car and dad's truck.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!
mattfromNY, I'm in the process or completely re-building that bike... I dont think it would be very much fun w/o a seat :hammerhead: lol!

mowpro, I believe the scag is a 2003, no electric start, but I love the thing. It's built like a tank

matts lawn care, Funny you ask, just finished ordering a few bottles for this
season! its great stuff!

deerman, The John Deere is my dads... it was the mower I used when I first started out. It's really taken a beating simply because its not meant for commercial use. I went and cleaned out the barn a couple days back and I found it sitting there, so today I went through the whole thing and replaced all the filters, hoses, belts, pulleys, sharpened the blades, new plugs, fuel & air filters, several gaskets here and there and a BUNCH of de-greaser. The tire is the next and final thing on the list to get it like new. I'll take some pictures of it when I'm all finished.

All_Clear, I bought the welder for about $150.00 I believe. It's a stick welder and it works excellent for the price (wouldn't expect anything less from a Lincoln) but I recently purchased a Hobart 140 MIG and you just cant beat wire feed... its sooo much easier to lay a good bead. So, if your going to spend money on a welder, go with wire feed.

KS_Grasscutter, I only have the garage for the winter, I will be moving out to the barn shortly. There is a real problem with mice back there during the winter, plus its not heated. So my parents let me set up shop in the garage for this winter. I will be putting up a brand new pole barn with heat and utilities sometime this season... and my parents know that so their alright with it for now.

For everyone that's asked about the spreader... it works well. No problems yet, just keep spryain it w/ WD-40!

Again, thanks for the compliments... keep em coming!

You bet, Chris! If you have a lock that's trouble, or any squeaky hinges, try a squirt and they'll be fixed for years, most likely.
