    A little tip for you guys that have electric fans on your LC engines, I went to a local parts store and checked the price of one for mine and it was $138. I went to Auto Zone and got the same exact fan that is on my diesel for $75. I figure that is a good item to have along also, since you won't mow without it.

    I also keep a nice assortment of fuses for it and the truck.

    I don't carry much in the way of spare parts, I'm usually only a few minutes from home or shop that I can swing by. I do however, carry two of every piece of equipment that I use.

    I keep a full set of new belts in a large toolbox that holds everything to keep me running. I have spare nuts and bolts, pins, blades and most importantly is the number of my dealer. He fixes em in a 1/2 hour or I get a loaner while he works on it.
