New Wheels

Postby Jeff Silvey » Sun May 25, 2014 7:14 am

I used to mow my yard & my rental which is next to us via push mower. When my son had his mowing business he did our mowing. Then he was acquired by a big business nationally known. Then I hire someone to mow for us. Well we discussed on getting a rider. Well I went for it this year. This puppy was on sale.

That is a nice one. Glad you went with the Kawasaki engine. I heard the Kohler engines weren't that good in those mowers.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I just got the LTX1050KW. Love it but wish it had the PTO lever like yours instead of the electric. Enjoy. Grump

I bought a 1046KW last year and really like it. I think you'll be very happy with it.

The way my CCC 782 is acting, I might be joining your ranks. I like the older Cadets, but I promised myself that I didn't want to be fixing and tinkering with a lawn mower every week when the grass needs cutting...and yet, here I am! :evil:

Nice ride Jeff! Hope it gives you many, many years of trouble-free service.
