if you're referring to my milk crate, which I think you are...that is where I keep my extra Stihl trimmer heads that I keep pre wound. I bought about six of them off ebay over the winter from a dealer who apparantly was selling out. Got all six for less than $40 if I remember right. I keep the tool kit that came with the KM in there as well as a pair of wire snips to cut off trimmer line with. thanks for the comments though!! gettin ready to bust loose this week...it rained here all day and temps in the high 60's to low 70's next week plus a 2x2 ad coming out in the local classified paper.

Could you show a little more detail on those straps that you apparently use to secure the mowers. Those look like a real simple idea.

I'll try to get you some more detailed pictures tomorrow Ed. YEah they are SUPER simple. ONe of those deals where you smack yourself and say "WHY didn't I think of that". They're so easy, Topsites could use em!!

The Wasp HP is a 36" with the 15hp Kawi. As far as which one I prefer...can't really say. I mean everything has its purpose. In an ideal world I'd love to sit on spin on the Warrior. However, there are some yards I mow where I could literally pull forward and turn around and be done with the Warrior. Honestly, there was this PITA yard that THANKFULLY the lady fired me over the winter. I was mowing it in about 17 minutes with the Warrior but there was a considerable amount of trimming I'd have to go back and do. The first time I mowed it with the Wasp, it took me 19 minutes to mow but I was still in and out in the same amount of time. I have to admit, it took some getting used to. All I had ever run was ZTR's. The Wasp has thrown me off a couple times. I'm getting better with it though. It's a cool little mower. I'd love to line up about 40-50 little .1 acre yards to knock out with it.

I have to admit I was skeptical of them. Seemed gimicky. I got four sets for Christmas. Only thing I would change about them is the bolts that are used to mount them. Comes with a phillips screw head. My air gun chewed those up. Really should have a hex bolt head on them. Use an impact with a socket and VIOLA...mounted in no time.
