I stopped in the gas station today. The guy on the other side of the pump was gassing his truck, fuel cans, and his obviously well used Scag Tiger. I casually asked how he liked his Tiger. His replied, Oh it is a great machine. Ive got well over 2500 hours on it! Well, I could believe that, but what I really found interesting, on his trailer, someone used old blades to help support the cross area on the ramp where the expanded metal once was. Someone had welded them in place. I would have never thought of this as a fix, but it worked! I think the trailer had more then few hours on it. Wish I had a camera to catch a photo of it. Question, do you have any unique use of worn-out lawn equipment parts rather then just throwing them away?
