The more I use this machine, the more I like it. Put another hour on it tonight, this time in pretty thick, wet grass. It didn't phase it a bit, just plowed right through, spitting it out the back chute.
Switched to a no-spill gas can, that eliminates any over-filling.
Couple of questions for anyone who might know.
Does it hurt the drive system to feather it? I find it much easier to turn doing that.
Also, does the drive system require any maintenance? I know it has fluid in there, maybe using a high quality synthetic would increase the life of it?
