    Hey guys!! I finally got my new mower up and running!! At heart it is a Snapper rear rider. I tore off the 8.5hp and replaced with a 14.5hp. The torque on the blades is awesome and the lift for the collection bagger is super tough!!! I have two sets of blades, a "winged" that helps with the sucking and then a double set up with mulch and reg for discharging. I have been doing spring clean-ups and it has worked like a charm. Not bad for a $500 investment.

    Once our yard is landscaped and done I want an exmark, but priorities are a *****...

    Thanks for the help guys!! Jason:alien:

    Ah, Gull Lake. Land of the Walleye, Al and Ron Lindner, Babe Winkleman and Gary Roach. Does Marv Koep still have his bait shop in Nisswa? Oh, congrats on the mower.

    Koeps is alive and well but Marv doesn't own it anymore. The new owners tripled the size of the joint and made it inot an all in one Marine joint from bait to boats.. Really nice!!
