    good job! i just bought the same mower. Get ready to start burning some serious gas though! and a little tip for you, when you run it out of gas you need to pull the filter and put a splash of gas on it to restart it. That fuel pump cant reprime itself just off of cranking the engine. There is actually a recall out on these so dealers can put some kind of one way valve on the fuel pump.

    thanks for the compliments guys, no love for old red?? lol

    hey picasso, i remember you said you wanted to get some hi lift mulchers, did you end up buying any? just curious as to which ones you were looking at and where from. the amount of grass that comes out of that discharges amazes me, we were so much more productive today.

    yeah i git them from j-thomas. they worked waaaaay better then the stock blades. i burn about 15-20 dollars of gas more perday with that mower over my 29dfi. You have to make that money back in productivity.

    Explain how they work better could you? I'm just curious since I am running stock blades on my Wildcat and wouldn't mind switching them out if they will work better.
