I know, I know, should have gone with commercial equip. but 3 yrs ago I was testing the waters for business as well as for myself. I didn't want to dive into the costly commercial grade stuff til I was sure this is what I wanted to do. Now that I got that outta the way, This is the first mower I bought and I love it and I want to keep it if I can manage to fix it myself. The trans or gearbox is slipping to the point that I am basically pushing this thing around instead of the other way around. I took everything apart and have ordered a new gearbox. My question is do you guys think it's rediculous to spend $60 and some of my free time with this repair vs. dumping ol' faithful for some new equipment? I obviously feel it is worth it being I am satisfied with its performance, but I just wanted to hear what you guys thought on the subject.
