Mower Time

12May07

Saw my first firefly on our acreage last night. Another sign that winter is over is that the acreage at Dragonfly Meadow needs to be mowed soon. However, Patrick has our mower apart to be repaired for his 4H small engines class. For all the new parts (piston, valves, gasket, etc) it is going to cost nearly as much to fix it as to buy a new mower. Fortunately, the extra money Wanda is earning means we can finally afford a riding mower. So guess what I’ve stated shopping around for? In Portage, at the price I can afford, the only two “quality” options are Craftsman or John Deere. There are also RONA, Canadian Tire and Wal-Mart house-brand mowers available but I have a concern with their longevity/serviceability. The following is a picture of Patrick with the dissected mower engine.
