............not that i would know how that feels! Here's the deal. My mower of almost 8 years died on me yesterday ( Toro 44in WB). She just quit on me. Started it back up and the engine made a loud clanking noise. Was able to load it in my van. Decided it was time to buy a new one. The old mower was becoming a money pit (kinda like my wife!!). I bought another Toro and broke it in today. I love it, but in the back of my mind, all I could think of was my old mower. She never let me down. It's sitting in my mechanics garage, waiting to get looked at on Tuesday. Almost feel as if i should go visit it!!!! Does anyone else get this attached to their mowers????
