    Well, this week has been pretty crappy. So far:

    1 parking lot sign - a momentary loss of concentration
    2 flat trailer tires - who knows why, but thank goodness for spares
    1 deck belt
    1 electrical cord - hidden in very high grass, owner said yard clear - LOL
    1 new underground dog fence - it was ABOVE ground in the grass - LOL
    1 cut below eye - trimming and threw a rock, thank goodness for sunglasses
    1 Redmax blower - just quit

    Boy, am I ready for this week to end.

    GOOD NEWS!!!! maybe your bad luck is done for the season! and lucky you to get it all out of the way the first week or two.:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    I can totally relate, my 52" Toro broke down the second week before the first strip was even mowed on our largest property. Didn't have tools to disengage the hydros, ended up taking 3 of us pushing and pulling to get it 50 feet or so back to the trailer. come to find out it was corrosion on the terminal (learn this from me! check your terminals and keep them clean) not very much either. Just enough to block the current.
