Lawn Mower Score

Picked up a MTD rider (42 inch cut) for the camp grounds for $250.00. 14.5 horse, runs like a champ. Been sitting in a garage for 5 years so a little service was in need. The guy that had it for sale put a new fuel line and filter plus a new battery it it. All I had to do is change the oil. It's been cutting grass 10 hrs a day for the past 4 days. I think I got a deal. Big party this weekend and the ground's are looking fine! Will post pics.

Pigs

Look for those deals, there out there.

The guy that sold it told me it was his uncle's. After he passed away, his aunt hired a lawn service to cut the grass. That's the story I was told. Any who, I'm happy with it.
