They don't like my current mower, even though the properties they have sent me so far could easily be done with my old JD tractor and my 21"
I have used this Ryobi for more than a few "post cleanup days" on Fort Bragg when I was in the Army, any one of which it saw about 8 hours of nearly continuous use each day. After I got out, it saw less use, as it was just used around my house, and then I was working as a retail manager so it saw no use while I was working 90 hour weeks. After leaving that job, I changed the plug, fuel filter and lines, and primer bulb, and it started this spring. I don't even remember cleaning the carburetor. After a few yard cleanups, and some "weed eat" only jobs, I would guess this thing has around 200 hours on it - which I understand is well past the expected life span of these things.
I got the Gravely in my signature to reduce the stress on it when going after substantially overgrown yards. 190cc moves that string on it's 22 inch arc with some authority.
