lol
i snagged a perfectly good 42" cut riding mower. all it needed was a new battery and a good carb cleaning.

ive picked pushmowers out of the trash before fixed em and sell em again for $40. more if i have to replace a specialty costly part...

i have one thats about ready to explode on me cuz the deck is so rusted out that if you push hard enough it flexes and duffs the ground.

My neighbor gave me his old mower last fall. The trouble is it still works.

"Working" is such a loose word though...some might say using gasoline would count as broken...just pull out the spark plug and throw some sand in there.

True enough. Sand it is.

It's not the $140 for the motor and whatever for controller and batteries...it's the competing with too many other mouths-to-feed.

But a solar charger sounds like a great way to go since it would only see use about once a week.

why not go out and buy an electric mower and then get a solar charger?
