    Pulled up to my house just as it was getting dark. Noticed my neighbor 2 houses up had her floodlights on, and she is out of town. She was scheduled to be mowed tomorrow, but I felt like I had one more yard in me and plus I had Mr. Budlight as my co-pilot!! Yard is small, 15 mins with a 21 inch pushmower. We'll 1/2 way through the yard, OUT GO THE LIGHTS!!! Appears as if she had these floodlights on a timer. So now I'm mowing in the dark and going by instincts alone!! I'll check it out tomorrow morning.

    Last year we were behind and we thought we could squeze the last job on our route in before dark. Its a 1 hour job and it was dark as heck 20 minutes into it. This property has about 8 rotors that stick up and have to be pushed down each week. I only chopped off one. Was not any fun. Never again will we be mowing with the big mowers in the dark.

    It sounds like you need to make a modification to the old 21" mower. Go ahead and mount a motorcycle battery on the mower and hook up a couple hallogen flood lights to the deck just inside the front wheels. LOL. Oh, and don't forget to either wear a plastic baseball cap with the cup holders, or just attach one to the handle of the mower.
