This year has been the worse for me in regards to maintenance on my mowers and equipment. I swear that this year I have already spend more in repairs and parts than I did the previous two years. I baby the heck out of the equipment as well, but a lot of little stuff is breaking down or just needing replaced Anywheres from; castor wheel bushings, deck bushings, wheels, deck engagers, choke levers on trimmers, trimmer heads, replacing a part on the blower that I ran over, throttle cable on a blower, the gear part on the head of the trimmer, bushings in sulkies, I replaced 3 belts on the deck in less than a months time because of a pulley that was bent....the list goes on and on. When is it going to end? I only have $187.00 left budgeted towards maintenance repairs for the rest of the year and I will pass that in no time.
