    I have noticed some spots in yards where the turf seems burned. It seems to be often near where I emptied the catcher of my walker mower. I thought possibly the air from the muffler was burning the grass. I have checked and can't find any fuel leaks. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Under stressed conditions. just parking a hot machine for a few can do this. Especially if you are using the same spot over and over every week. I would CERTAINLY be considering a little variation, there.;)

    It is the heat from the exhaust.
