    Its funny how the flow of a thread suddenly stops and starts again.

    I broke nothing on purpose BUT

    the electric clutch broke on the Toro WB $215.00

    the fuel pump on my 26EFI took a crap WARRANTY

    2 flats on Walker $2.00

    1 flat on trailer $1.00

    1 empty 6gal gas can flew away $0.00 had an extra

    Can't complain.

    I wish :rolleyes: that more people would continue to add/make comments about topics already discussed in the older threads. It keeps the topic combined and saves from having to go thru 85 (4 post threads) to get what info your looking for -LOL!!!

    Ok let me say up front that it has'nt been such a good year breakage wise anyway, so here's this years list.

    clients rear window in her car (weedeater)
    clients tempered glass fullview storm door(weedeater)
    clients rear storm door glass (walkbehind with doubles on it)

    clients drain cleanout pipe and cover(walkbehind)
    my own tail light(weedeater)

    Maybe we got most of our breakage out of the way this year, better luck next!
