    The condition of your Cub Cadet will determine whether or not it will hold up. If it's in good shape and you aren't trying to cut 100 properties a week with it it should be fine for a little while.

    Setting up a shop depends on what you want to do. If you just need somewhere to grind some blades and change the oil then there really isn't anything to set up. Buy a grinder and a jack or maybe some ramps to get the mower up in the air and you're set.

    If you're looking for somewhere to store chemicals, mowers and stuff like that then but one of those poly sheds. They're relatively cheap and hold up for a long time.

    I've been at this for over 12 years and have 5 mowers, a bunch of trimmers along with grinders, sprayers, spreaders and 2 generators and the whole mess only occupies a 10' by 16' space in my 32 by 32 garage.
