Hey, guys. It's been a while. NOT running a lawn care kinda take one out of the loop. Well, here's the deal. David isn't here anymore and I've been using the old equipment he left here to do our little 1/2 acre lawn. My problem is...I may have worked the office equipment fairly nice, but I never really got the hang of all the outdoor stuff. 1. The push mower needs to be replaced. I just got the snot shocked out of my hand when I tried to shut it down. It's jerry rigged from top to bottom. You have to shut it off by pulling the spark plug out and the grass shoot is held on with twine and a small cresant wrench. ?? And I really need to raise the deck for this yard and I have no idea where that lever is...if it exsists. Its a snapper with a ninja mulching system. Any suggestions on a replacment brand that I could get (homeowner) that I could deal with for the next couple of years? I'm getting my Bachelors degree right now and can get something not so great if its worth it until I can get a job in my field and afford something better. 2. The weed eater (shindowa) has a little fuel in it. But it needs mixed gas. What exactly is mixed gas? I'm sure I asked that eons ago, but I can't remember. I think that is why it won't start...that it doesn't have enough fuel, I mean. Thanks again friends. Hope you are all doing great.
