If it was set up as a mulching mower, there may be an insert thing inside the deck that's designed to make the grass swirl around to get cut over and over. You should remove that. (mine is a black pl

I don't think so, but check Northern Tool. If you have a hill, you could put in a tank and have gravity do the work. We're required to have a big tank for fire supression, so its up the hill and the

Mostly comfort. You're lucky you didn't fall with the rope around your torso. That'll crack ribs and then suffocate you if you don't get cut down in a hurry. I used to rock climb and I spent a couple

That is probably a lot safer when you want to start the saw without putting it on the ground (i.e. you're in a tree or on ground thats not good for kneeling). I've been using saws long enough to have

Cable ties don't put much tension on the things they're tied arond. If you can't get a real hose clamp on the leaker, try the largest diameter stainless safety wire you can find. Eric
