Surfed on over from the Gardenweb tractor forum. When it comes to tractors and other small-engine equipment, I'm a learner, not a teacher. I'll lurk around to see what I can pick up, but reserve the right to throw in an assinine comment from time to time. Live on a 3-acre spread in Parker County, Texas (just west of Fort Worth), where the summers are hot and dry, and the mowing season is about 11 months a year. Weeds rule my little place, but they look green when mowed ... if it has rained in the past month or so. My Power King tractor is old and ugly, but when I turn the key it goes "udden, udden," so I don't have an excuse to buy a new shiny machine.
