Goats. A couple of goats will have your yard trimmed nicely in no time. Plus, they require no gasoline.

Yes but you have to regulate the hight at which the cut. That requires you to get male goats tie a rope to their horns and then run along there backs and tie it to there nut sack set there head as low as you want it to go and tie them up and let them go. The best thing is as they eat the fertilize as well.....

Lowe's Hardware carries alot of Troy built lawn equipment. Home Depot carries alot on MTD lawn equipment, and ACE Hardware has even more selection on MTD lawn equipment than Home Depot.

MTD is good stuff and at fairley reasonable prices. Troy built is also good stuff but a slightly higher price.

I'm the only guy in my subdivision with a tractor and although it's pretty sexy the wife says it has to go. JD it's yours, bring your own battery. By the way, that's snow.

Guess what. Troy Built is made by none other than (Place drum roll here) MTD.

Hunter is that a Farmall? or a IH? My grandfather was the largest Case IH Dealer in Northern CA back in the day. They used to send all their dealers to a trade show each year on a CRUISE SHIP.

I just had to replace my 10+ year old mower. I bowed to the SO's pressure and got a self propelled. Wally World has a pretty decent Briggs & Stratton brand Brute 22" mulching/side discharge/rear bagging mower. Under $300. Ready to roll with oil and new self prime fresh fuel system. Handle is very high. Engine plenty powerful with 6.75 ft/lbs of torque. Easy start. easy assembly, remove from box, add oil (included), add gas, put rear bag on frame and go.

Down side? Heavy.

I wondered about that.

MTD is good stuff and has reasonable prices. We used to have an ACE Hardware store and sold alot of MTD lawn and garden equipment. Never had a customer that had a complaint about this brand. We used to sell Lawn Boy lawn mowers back in the 1960's till the mid 1970's and they were real good when they were high rpm 2 cycle motors. But due to federal safety regulations they had to cut their rpm's quite a bit by the early 1970's, at which time they became just status quo mowers. I still have a Lawn Boy lawn mower made in 1968 and it's a screamer. Cuts grass like soft butter with a hot knife.
