Well, from last night into today, we have over an 1.5 inches of rain. Since Sunday we are about 2 inches of rain. Pretty wet spring and the next couple of weeks just look cool and wet too.

Anymore the ground is so soaked here that if we get alittle rain for a half hr you have to wait almost the whole day before you can get out. We got a ton of rain today, who knows if they'll even be dry enough tomorrow now.

Gunna either mess yards up tomorrow or go mulch.

I was trying to get caught up on stuff I got way behind on. So my brother said he would go out after it stopped raining. All went good till the last lawn, he called me and told me the drive belt on the Lazer broke. Had to winch it up on the trailer about 7;30 tonight. Anyone replace this belt???


Seems like it is a pain in the butt. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I looked under it, and looked at the book and it shows 3 pulleys???? One is the tensioner, right??? Just wondering if I should take it to the shop instead of doing it myself.

Thanks.

No idea, Knock on wood i've never had a belt break. Altho i've been running the bagger on the lazer lately on some lawns so im picking up an extra belt for that since its getting put on and off a lot.

I keep getting more and more calls for work, just wish I knew what summer and gas would do, hard to add yet another mower payment (they offer 0 percent so why use my own money) and have yet another payment over the slow months.

If it looks easy, give it a shot.

Sucks breaking down, especially when were behind. One of our cat's clutch went out saturday. I'm stuck and coming down the side of the road (two factory accounts nest to each other) and thinking, what is going on. There was no way they could be done (been gone about 45 mins, its a 2 hour job) until I see the lazer z pulling the cat.

Hoping to demo a Scag V-Ride this week.

Same boat. Really hard to justify another (we already have three and a batwing). We really need something smaller though.
