    Nice :cool:

    A 4x8 works great for a 36" and a 21". Get the 36 into mowing condition and you'll be set. I mainly use a 36, they're a good size for average sized residentials.

    I saw you are using a Ryobi trimmer, that's what I started out with my first season. Pretty good trimmer except that the clutch is starting to go out on it after only 1 year of part time work. :( Using a Kawasaki now :)

    You do have a sweet deal!
    You know what would make a great self propelled spreader/sprayer? A walkbehind with a bad deck. That's what I'm going to do with mine if the deck ever goes bad.
    I've got 2 of those Ryobi's plus every attachment except the blower. I had to buy a second one when I first started because I stripped the shaft that couples them together. It was $20 and really easy to fix. Anyway, they are very heavy. Get something light like a Robin (9lbs) when you can afford to. I keep those 2 Ryobi's on the trimmer trap along with my Robin. One has an edger attachment and the other has a brush blade. I'll run them until they quit. My Robin is only 25cc but the Ryobi is 31cc. The Robin blows the Ryobi's away.
