    What is the average lifespan for a grass gobler? I have had a metal one for like 3 years now and its pretty banged up, but still works. At what point do you throw yours out? What do you fix on them if anything?

    They'll last a long time if
    1. the operators don't bang them into walls, trees, cars, etc.
    b. they sit high enough off the ground (unlike some from SCAG) so the bottom corners don't drag and wear out.

    Replace when screening wears and needs a lot of welding, because that thin tin is a pain in the azz to deal with.
