Not fair! You can't have a mini-fest and exclude us !!! :headbang

Gee Bob, When I met your son last week I thought he was a pretty nice guy. I sure hope he doesn't turn into a southern comforter. :shock:

Andy, after working on these for 10 years, you're going to get used to working on a different machine: The Cub has 4 tires, the A-10 only 3 !!! :headbang

...and the A-10 may be able to mow down an encampment of terrorists in Afghanistan, but can it mow grass ???

Took the pressure washer to the cub today, still needs a few cans of gunk in some places, but I mainly wanted to give this thing a good lookover for anything out of place. All I found so far was a small leak out the front of the touch control. Here are a few pics of the cub out in the "daylight." After its first wash and lube, I took it around the backyard a few times. Everything seemed in good order, mower worked nicely, all in all, a good afternoon!

Very nice Andy, your dad and I have been PMing about you going to the Fest with him.
Looks like you done really well on picking your first cub, a nice year to boot. :wink:

Really nice, Andy. What's the deal with that seat, tho? :lol: :lol:

That seat likes to spin, which I'm not sure it should do, but it is useful for getting the battery out to put on the charger in the garage while pressure washing :mrgreen: In the pics the battery is actually out, the cables are just pushed into the box.

That cub really shines! You did a lot better than my first cub...

Your seat might be spinning like that because your missing a seat guide. It is #4 in this diagram:
