    Equipment wise, not property damage.

    2. bent rim on trailer wheel (cutting to close a turn)

    3. broken trailer jack handle

    4. snapped throttle cable on z

    5. hour meter stopped working on wb

    6. handle snapped on bp sprayer

    I have a ton of things to fix on top of all the regular maintenance. So lets here what broke on you guys this past month.

    Besides the bank, I'm good for some belts, weed whips seem to go in and out a lot, The walls of the enclosed seem to come loose alot beatin down all these dirt roads. Not this year but years before, I've lost a couple motors, the valves on another mower, a couple spindles from guys hitting rocks and stuff, One mower deck, A few tounge jacks. :dizzy: :dizzy: :dizzy: Thinking of all this makes me feel like this.:dizzy: :dizzy: :hammerhead: :hammerhead: Thanks for bringin up all the headaches again sfl.:laugh:

    The walkers my buddy uses at the hospital have more down time than I know what to do with. And these things aren't that old, And they get serviced on a weekly bassis by their in house mechanics.

    The fuel pump went out on the John deere, My robin trimmer needed a tune up (bad fuel filter) and then a dummy re- strung a trimmer and left the cover 1/2 off and then the cover came off and lost both string eye lets and the spring, I was going to lay him off for a week with out pay........but Im solo and I was the big dummy so..........

    Always, no matter how many parts I have in stock, the one that breaks has to be ordered.
    Then, anytime after the order is placed I find some I forgot I had, which ensures me a lifetime supply.
