    He took his own life after my mom got a separation last December. She had custody of my 3 brothers and 1 sister. I miss him so much.

    Yeah I have cursed at that mower so many times, like going uphill with wet belts. Overall it cuts great and is built well. Although its gotta be the ugliest mower ever. I wish it was still that clean but i screwed it up with krylon red spray paint and its now faded and scratched. I spilled gas on it and pulled the krylon up and now the thing looks like crap.
