    Me too

    That's the only time it has happened to us

    With the slightly longer wheel base then the PG Mag it will turn on a dime but will also fold up on ya

    I think n the truck or trailer if not supported correctly it just folds up and lays over during transport

    After that we just supported it a little better and no issues

    Guys said it takes some getting used to

    May I gently say, likewise.

    I have not had a problem with fuel in my machines. Its the least of my worries.
    My father is a lifelong farmer and I support his industry. If that makes me biased, so be it.

    We have never had any issues with ethanol with any of our trucks, machines, blowers or small equipment.
    We have had a few issues with our Stihl lawn bosses and will not run ethanol n them. The gas/oil mix premix is $24 a gallon.

    I have heard a lot of bad stuff on ethanol but what can we do. You have to run it!

    I am a farmer and although I LOVE what ethanol has done for our markets...I am totally against it.
    It is not self sustainable and can ONLY survive with subsidies.
    I have been against ethanol since day one but it also has made me a lot of money.

    Rodney, I really appreciate you saying this. I also grew up on a farm but a subsidy is a subsidy. I do not like them or mandates. A product should be able to stand on its own merits.

    On equipment I run everyday I don't have problems with ethanol. It's only been equipment that is used once or twice a month that become the problem, I think that's why homeowners have such problems on they're mowers and such. JMO
