    Or at least it seems that way.

    Monday I ordered a new Chariot LX.

    Tuesday old Chariot wouldn't start, went to shop bad key switch.

    Wendsday at firehouse.

    Thursday piched up new unit, old unit ran great 1/2 the day then lost power and wouldn't hardly run.

    Friday took to shop first thing looks like the electronic spark advance. Kohler tech said to unhook certin wire so we could use it. 2ed lawn it pops and sputters, starts hitting on one cylender and hissing through the muffler. Head gasket or somthing like that.

    I am anxious to get 2 61" chariots on the ground to see how fast we can put some grass down.

    Naturalawn, I like your 100 years from now.
    Last week I had three of my four commercial mowers down but now I have them running again. It stinks having all that trouble. However your statment has a bunch of meaning.
    Hope you get both going soon
