    Post your pictures of your UGLY mower that still works and gives a sweet cut.


    Here is my 52" SCAG Hydro. It is the MUCH older hydro that doesn't have the 'Dashborad' but that didn't stop someone from welding one on.

    THe deck is shot, it has more welds than Franenstein has scars, the middle spindle has almost been completely welded all the way around it to keep it on.

    When I engage the blades the noise level goes up by a factor of 10.

    The front caster wheels are ridiculous!

    I found it on eBay in Chicago, made the tip from Omaha to Chicago (Russo's Power Equip) and back in 16 hrs and 45 minutes (8 hr trip each way), paid $400 and they threw in a new throttle cable, air and oil filter and a thank you and sent me on my way.

    One Great thing!! It does not have the original engine. Someone put on a V-Twin Kaw 17hp engine that PURRs like a kitten (tiger actually)!! I was told that Kawasaki didn't make that engine when the mower was manufactured. It has to be worth more than the whole mower.

    It's ugly but it gives a SWEET, SMOOTH and CREAMY CUT !! You know what I'm talking about.
