New, not new to me.

Knocked 45 minutes off how long it takes to mow my acre. Kinda like a tilt a whirl that can kill ya.

My riding mower blew up last summer. I went looking around and found a great deal on a zero turn at Lowe's. took my mowing down to under 2 hours from 3.5. It was listed as "used" because someone left the key on and racked up 212 hours on the meter. They replaced the battery and knocked 20% off. Then I got my Military discount on top of that and walked out with a new mower. I replaced the hour meter with a factory one because it came with a 300 hour warranty. Have to say, it does make mowing more enjoyable.

My Husky turned 16hour push duty to 1h 45m . One rainy season more and it will have paid off by itself.

And you still bought a red one? hmmm

Still uselessly pondering my Terra Cotta choice vs the Yellow or Blue Ural. Uselessly because I had to make a decision with what I could get and while the Yellow or Blue had appeal, not possible with the timeline and I am now enamaled with the TC.

There is a learning curve, but I am getting there.

When waving at the neighbors, don’t let go of one handle to do it. Nod or uncurl the fingers of one hand, leaving the wrapped around the grip.

Ditches are the enemy.

One wheel in the air happens, don’t freak out.

It’s got a bigger foot print than the old rig. Make a bigger space for it.
