    Looking at first new Commercial Mower, I have questions.

    I don't have any info to offer on Bush Hog in particular... but currently Snapper Pro is widely considered to be the best bang for your buck when it comes to commercial ZTR's. Basically a Ferris without suspension. Might want to check them out if you haven't already...

    Sharpening blades

    I use a plain old angle grinder. But I end up replacing blades more often than sharpening them, we have sandy soil in my area and it wears them out fast.

    Exmark Radius pulling

    Have you checked your owner's manual for adjustment info? Sometimes they'll include instructions for "adjusting the tracking" (that's the official name for the procedure.) For clarification, when the control bars are in line with each other (either in forward or reverse) it pulls to one side?

    The benefits of PD.

    I've been purchasing through PD since 2017. As with all the distributors I buy from, I pay for all orders via credit card at the time of purchase so I don't have to set up or manage a line of credit. They have been great to work with, I have no complaints. Parts arrive in 1-2 days from date of...

    California considers a statewide ban on gas powered lawn equipment.

    Well, crud. I pulled it directly from the ABC News website. Just went back and double checked it to make sure nothing is messed up. I've tried it half a dozen times and not seeing an issue...

    Snapper Pro 48" Deck Spring

    I have a Snapper Pro CZT19480KWV in the shop, and it's missing the tensioner spring for the deck belt. Apparently it fell off and got lost on the owner's lawn. The spring is discontinued, and I haven't found one available anywhere online. Does anyone have one or know somebody who might?

    Snapper Pro S125XT vs Redmax CZT52 for your experiences which you recommend

    I would get the Snapper Pro with a Kawasaki engine. There are several engine options on that model.

    Honda mower with new OEM carbureator surging

    I went out to the garage, grabbed a few Hondas and got pictures of the linkage, both at the carburetor and at the governor arm. Click the photos to enlarge. Make sure that the long, straight portions of the anti-surge spring are not wrapped around the linkage. The linkage is supposed to go...

    What does this fit

    According to this chart, it fits 1990s-early 2000s Murrays. As a result, I moved this thread to the Murray forum.

    Echo PE200 Edger Carb. Problem

    If you are installing the screw with the trigger in this position, that's incorrect. The upper portion of the trigger will hit the screw before the engine even leaves idle. The upper portion of the trigger should be on the other side of the screw.

    WANTED: Boxes of old 2 cycle carburetors

    If you own a shop and replace all your 2-cycle carburetors rather than rebuilding, let me know. I rebuild 90% of the ones I work on, and like to keep a bunch of extras around for parts. I'm in central FL but will pay shipping. Just bought two boxes off Ebay. Thanks!
