For Wet Boots

Had to raise this today. The caretaker specifically told me not to rep[lace it because its the last one of its kind on the estate and it is near a dear to him.

Haven't seen one of those in quite some time.
Not at all surprised that it is still working.

Memories, kinda like the awkward loss of my virginity! Takes me back to 1978 and my first install. Man, were they fun to adjust...almost as fun as the S600!

I know a source for a couple new safe-t-lawn heads. Just might snatch them up. You get pretty good at adjusting the dog ears after awhile.

I see probably 6 homes a year that still have some of those left. Most have been replaced over time, but there's a few still left around.

I wonder how many original Minipaw heads are still on the job. Nice find, GM!

Except that neither one pops up high enough now that the trend is to let the grass grow longer, and not cut it short.

I agree with Dana, I would not do any turf with 4" or smaller rotors. 6" rule!
