I am in the same boat Jeremy. I only have the ZJ and the wife's Neon.

Although I might be picking up a golf cart for my son here soon. That should be fun to mod.

I just bought a radiator for my wife's EVO. Next thing on the list for her car is the 120k mile stuff.

Ha yeah, but there's still the side and front too. Plus after using a push mower for 10 years on my parents half acre I swore I'd never push a mower again

I destroyed one exactly like that trying the first time mowing my lawn in Minnesota. 3 acres almost a foot high of prairie grass killed it pretty quick.

A push, or a fwd pull handle and go? If I had a riding one, I would have my 6 yr old mowing my lawn. Lol

I got the radiator in and finished. Back to boosting 22psi is nice mmmkay.

If I could wrench better I would buy a broken rider and fix it for my 85x100 back lawn. I only mow it about every other week because I get tired of doing it every week. The new ones are too expensive.

It was an old sears original self propelled I swear was made of cast iron. By the time my siblings handed off mowing duties to me the self propel gears were stripped so it was me pushing that dang thing. It was miserable doing that twice a week.

This one is a little tank. I mowed my lawn when it was 6-8 inches and it made neat little half foot piles of grass. Made the yard look like I was harvesting hay. I then ran over those piles again and again moving them closer til I ended up with one big pile. No complaints from the mower.

The main thing I'm excited for is it has a snow plow attachment

Yeah, I never broke the mowing part. I broke the steering on it. Basically the knuckle.

Watch yourself with the plow. The weak point on all those types of mowers are the jackshaft in the transaxle. The bushing/bearing is soft bronze and if there's too much torque applied to the shaft it will chew straight through the bushing, which will grenade the primary drive gear.

Basically if you don't use more than 60 or 70 pounds of wheel weights you'll be good. The tractor will lose traction before putting enough torque on the transaxle to do any damage. If it starts to hop, back up and take a smaller bite of the snow.
