Its funny how the flow of a thread suddenly stops and starts again.

I broke nothing on purpose BUT

the electric clutch broke on the Toro WB $215.00

the fuel pump on my 26EFI took a crap WARRANTY

2 flats on Walker $2.00

1 flat on trailer $1.00

1 empty 6gal gas can flew away $0.00 had an extra

Can't complain.

I wish that more people would continue to add/make comments about topics already discussed in the older threads. It keeps the topic combined and saves from having to go thru 85 (4 post threads) to get what info your looking for -LOL!!!

A lot of stuck bolts (repairs on the F-150)
A few sticks/branches (cleanups)
Knocked a stone off a old brick wall (2ft high, planting arbs. and junipers)
Cut a metal/steel pipe cover in 1/2 (mower sucked it up)
Side of trailler light (my leg cought it)
Pin on trailer gate latch came 1/2 off (poor install weld)
Bracket on catcher came 3/4 off (bounced and hit trees's to much)
Saw Chain (old chain on Stihl 029, luckly not injured)

Ok let me say up front that it has'nt been such a good year breakage wise anyway, so here's this years list.

clients rear window in her car (weedeater)
clients tempered glass fullview storm door(weedeater)
clients rear storm door glass (walkbehind with doubles on it)

clients drain cleanout pipe and cover(walkbehind)
my own tail light(weedeater)

Maybe we got most of our breakage out of the way this year, better luck next!
