Just figured this site is going to keep reminding me to introduce myself, so here we go.
I am a 33 year old commercial heating and a/c service mechanic. I had picked up a hr215hxa from my neighbors garage sale for $50. Rolled it across the street, cleaned the Carb and put in fresh gas. It started on the 1st pull and runs perfect. The hydrostatic drive functions good as well. I enjoy fixing stuff so I went back over and bought a johndeere edger from him for $40. Cleaned it up and sold of last night for $120. I think I am obsessing over my next find now. I have 2 more mowers I have acquired in the last week. 1st one is a hra215sx ($60) and the other is a hr214sx (free from my other neighbor after he noticed I enjoyed fixing them)
My wife dislikes it but doesnt mind when I give her some of the money to get her hair done!
I enjoy the site, there is good info here. I have been looking for an old lawnboy to fix up next.
until next time
