    I figured thats why you pulled the front end off. I remember you talking about rust in your area. Is that frame local looks nice like you said.

    not really sure bob, it's actually the same frame we took the cab off of a few years ago. we know it's been sitting in the junkyard for 5-6 years and had a connecticut plate on it but there aint no way it survived 20+ winters up this way and still looks that clean

    this pine tree was just a sapling when we started this lawn:hammerhead: had a couple of minor problems too, forgot to tighten the nut that holds the pullies on the front shaft so they came off, the deck got bent in and the worn out belt decided it was too worn out to work anymore so we pulled the adjustment bracket as tight as we could get it (which is passed where it should be) and well you'll see:dizzy::laugh:

    cutting with it for a couple hours after the ff had soaked in for a few days helped clean the heavier crap off the deck. still on the fence as to whether or not imma paint the underside so another coat off ff was added. found the cover for the drive belt, coated the rust spots on that and threw in an added bonus pick of the horse with it's trailer loaded with 875 pounds of rock salt. pulled that sucker like nuffin!:weightlifter: i wasn't surprised but what did surprise me was that the trailer didn't fall apart ;) :laugh:

    last sat i went out and picked up a 42" rear discharge deck for the horse:weightlifter: it's not pretty but it will be once i'm done:cool2: gave it a top to bottom ff'ing then figure we'll cut with it once before doing the repairs needed. the following pics show the nice flow of ff out of the gun :cool2:
