I Like Shindaiwa and Kawasaki more than Stihl, with the exception of handheld blowers. Think Scag and Snapper mowers are the best. Just My .02.

Did I miss anything

Vride in for 1500 hrs service.
1. adjusted the valves
2. Adjusted the clutch it was beyond .020"
3. Greased unit including front wheel swivel rod
4. Gas filter
5. Changed oil and filter
6. Changed hydro oil and filter
7. New rear tires
8. Added coffee can for ant food container
9. Sharpened blades and got new blades
10 put on new hydro belt blade belt replaced at 1200hrs
11. Changed spark plugs

Putting the hydro belt on was a little tough but I stewed over those valve adjustment for a hour. Because of the wear in parts very difficult to get em in spec. Probably will change the rocker and pivot bolt in winter. Will replace pto switch and starter switch later. New battery after 1000 hrs but gotbetter brand. Got new starter ready to go in.

I try to end season with my best looking flowers then when you ask them if they want to put in winter flowers, it goes better.
