    What parts should I have on hand for normal wear and tear? It only has 650 hours on it. I was also surprised to see the turnbuckle style manual clutch. Is that still used on their new mowers?

    Spare parts?....A LAZER !!!! LOL Just kidding. I had a '97 Flatlander. Put about 1200 hrs on it and only replaced belts and head gaskets. You can never have ALL the spare parts you'll need! Put it this way, whatever breaks is guaranteed NOT to be in the tool box!!!

    They are pretty much a maintenance free mower. Belts last a long time. Blades is what I spent the most money on!

    Yes on the manual clutches on the new machines.

    Spare parts: Belts and maybe a spare flat and v idler pulley around 2500 hours.
  4. Belts and keep it greased or it will be more. Also One spare spindle shaft and bolt.

    As LGF stated, you need a spare spindle(one short and one long)part#30217 and 30217L, B38, B80, and B128 belts, spare front wheel and tire assy., and spare blades. You might keep a throttle cable on hand as well, since DC's is different from anything I've ever seen(part#68249). Flat idler pulley(#30224) and v-pulley(#30234). Hope this helps............Lynn
