Its just been one of those days

First I want to say Hi to everyone seeing that Im new here.

So today I load all my equipment up and go out to mow my lawns seeing that its going to rain the rest of the week. I get to my first lawn get done with the front lawn and i hear a pop and the blades stop. I think I just blew a drive belt no big deal I have more at the shop. I take the cover off and find the belt is good but one of the pulleys is all loose GREAT! what do you know the baring went on the pulley. So I go to my local dealer what do you know they went out of business. So now I have to go home fine a different dealer and go there. I get there and they dont have the part and have to order it. Uggg its just have been one of those days.

I carry several sets of bearings nowadays, granted it still costs me a trip home but I learned the same way you did how much a bad spindle bearing can set me back so I make sure to always have at least one set around.

But I've had worse, ran home THINKING I had the part...
Then finding it was in the truck all along.
Or worse, I forgot to order it.
