    These suckers keep crawling into the pullys/belts at the top of the deck and they chew on the belts. How do ya keep em out while using the mower regularly?

    Where do you store your equipment?

    moth balls, guaranteed to keep them out. Or put a fake owl by your mower that will keep them away to.

    I store the equipment in my shed... the stupid things find their way around the moth balls and crawl into the mower.

    I bought a new hustler friday. I have mice in my garage because my doberman drags out her dog food in the floor to eat it. I really did have trouble with mice eating extension cords and parts of electric power tools last fall and winter. Weird. Anyway, my normally asleep on the couch house cat is now in the garage protecting my new mower. Or she better be. Now the dobie sleeps on the couch till the mice are gone. :blob3:
