I have found that it takes me a little longer to do things than it used to. What used to take an hour or two now takes a day or two. I spent part of Friday, Sunday afternoon, and this afternoon getting the grader blade off my old 48, and putting the flail mower on. Made a couple of repairs on the flail and installed the mower lift I got from Russ. Greased and chnged oil, and then put her to work. A neighbor had bush hogged the lower part of my property for me a couple of times last year, but it was high with old grass and new fescue clear up to the front axle of the cub in someplaces. The governor opened, the old 48 coughed a time or two, and the she started mowing like she was serious.. Settled down to a sweet growl, and just kept getting it. Felt and sounded great, but I had to have a new drain field put in while the ground was soft and the field is pretty rough. After 30 minutes or so, I had enjoyed about as much as I could stand and had to shut down for the day, but I sure was happy. This was the first time my health has let me mow with the cub since the summer of 2002. It felt great even though I couldn't mow for too long at a time.
