    E-brake is on.
    But he does drive it with me on.
    He does good.

    ATV's also do well pulling an aerator.

    It just looked like there was someone in the back ground bending over the mower.

    Blower manual says 15f and below is too cold. My ram 3500 I still have to plug in the block warmer if it gets down to 25 or below. Batteries are almost new. Grid heater pulls a lot of voltage while it cycles onand off so I assume it working. I still don't know what my dodges problem is.

    I don’t run much of anything under 20 degrees. If it’s 20 in the morning then the highs will be in the 30s or 40s. After thanks giving I don’t work if it’s not 30 and up. Everything freezes to the ground and I cant get a nice finish on the lawns.

    One reason why I am phasing out diesels. That and all of the turbo diesels we run have been unreliable and expensive to maintain.
