Thanks Tiedeman, Cleancut, and MacLawn. Hardly made of glass but always trying to reduce risk -- I almost always use a mulch plate even tho it takes a little longer.
The 30% special depreciation sounds like a good option.
My wife said buy the mower, get some sit-down time so as not to work quite as hard in the heat, and that will reduce the risk.
