Sharpened the blades

Me and my dad sharpened the blades the morning of the fourth of july and changed the oil changed the oil filter and the air filter, so the craftsman was in great shape to mow. Saturday we had the best fireworks display of our lifetime but with enjoyment of aerial fireworks you get the huge mess around the whole yard so sunday morning be fore we cut i had to walk around the yard for and hour with a trash bag and clean up but after that got the best cut this year so far.

I think those look good man... real good for a Craftsman.

I hope you charged them a premium for the trash pickup.

An hour of trash pickup is a lot of trash...I don't care about a few pieces of trash but and hours worth is ridiculous.

nice pics.

The neighbors out at the lake had a great fireworks show I herd, the next morning, they were out cleaning our 2 boats and several other neighbors and will have to spend some money to replace my uncles and some other neighbors boat covers as well.

I think he was mowing at his own house.

Does look good for a Craftsman. Makes you want to sharpen the blades before every cut!

alot of companies around my area sharpen the blades and service the mowers each day before they arrive at any accounts.

they usually arrive at 7 and try to be at the first account at 8:30.

there is no doubt about it, sharpening blades before each cut makes it looks so much better.
