    well i broke my machine the other day. just pulling some 1" poly in the back yard of a house with established lawn and landscape when i lost all hydraulics. the engine was still running so i figure it striped the splines between the engine and pump. we had to jack the plow out of the ground and pull the drive shafts just so we could push it out the gate.

    then i rented a Vermeer LM42 to finish the job (what a pita to operate). and on top of all of this it had an electrical problem and wouldn't start half the time.

    i guess it was just one of those days.

    We've done the same thing on our 410. Stripped the spines on the hydraulic pump to the engine.

    Seems like a common point of failure.
     
  4. Bummer, I guess the only bright side is that you are at the end of your season.

    DW did you pick that avatar or was it forced on you? I liked your azzhat avatar but I knew it had a limited life span.

    How much was the LM42 rental?

    I think it was $225.00 but it wasnt worth it.

    I'm surprised that my "mooning butt" signature hasn't been pulled yet by the mods. After all... in the Calendar Girls thread butt cracks and thongs aren't allowed. :laugh:
