    My 04 Scag cub started vibrating a few years ago when I was in forward throttle going up a hill. It has had a hydraulic leak for a long time. I just keep replacing the fluid and make sure it is full every time before I mow. When it happened the first time, I just replaced the fluid and...

    Hey there, I'm looking to start a small summer lawn care business that will mow 10-12 lawns from May to August, and I'm looking for the best inexpensive mower I can find.

    Hey everyone, new to the landscaping business. I just bought a Bluebird 405 power rake. At what point should I consider replacing the 4" long blades? Currently they are about full length, but the corners are well rounded. Is this acceptable? Also, when or if I do need to replace, do I...

    Title says most of it I guess. I'm in Northern Colorado so something I can see & pick up locally is a bonus but not a requirement. I'm going to be loading a Ryan Lawnaire IV and other various mowers and such in a newer Tacoma if specifics help. So far I've seen this which has been...

    I replaced the Kawasaki FH541V-AS24-R 17hp on my 2004 turf tracer hp with a Kawasaki FH580V-DS21S 19hp. The new engine runs fine but when I try to engage the speed control lever, or PTO lever the engine dies. The only difference in the wiring is the new engine has a red wire for an electric...

    Ok well I bought my first CTL today.. it's a 2003 ASV RC-30, has a little over 500 hours and seems to be in decent shape - except for the right track. Almost all of the underside lugs have been chipped/broken off on the inside. I don't know what could have caused it, other than a rock or...

    Purchased a new Exmark Lazer HP 50" last year and mowed once with it. Love it. In fact, if I weren't married, I might have married it. Anyway, loaned it to my brother who turned the mower on and off twice with the PTO engaged and threw the belt. He never got it back on correctly so I bought the...

    So here's the story. Less than a year ago I installed 20 5-Gallon Photinia (red tip) shrubs out in an area where Deers are present. The shrubs were doing great until last week when it started getting cold, and over night the photinias were almost completly eaten (the leaves). At the time I...
