Someone had converted the mower to a fertilizer spreader..
I needed the frame so I cut most of that stuff off...

Rumor has it that the mortar tubes are actually used as fishing pole holders by the crew leaders...
That is of course ....when they're not sleeping in the trucks...

This is for you Generac fans, I am back at with my semi annual nonsense. In any event back dreaming about updating my mower and found out a few things with the BB Generacs. If I am wrong somebody feel free to correct me.

Subaru now sells the BB Gens as well as DC and every body else appears to be cut out, the prices through Subaru appear to have gone up 400 $ on the horizintals, the verticals through Subaru are not available yet but accoding to people who have been into them they have heavier rods and I believe a beefier crank pin design, moly rings and a better designed piston for the new rings. They also have made cam changes to lesson adjustments and more duration for more power. I believe some call the cam the propane cam which ultra lights builders used as after market mod but the machine comes stock with the cam now. They also supposedly have a boreable liner and are supposed the be working on EFI to go with these updates so these may be real nice packages.
