Re: Lawn Mower Poll

With the Honda engine I notice maybe HALF the noise of the Briggs & Stratton. MUCH better fuel economy. I can mow a 100x100 lawn and have gas left in the tank. I don't have that "have to drain it over the winter" issue either. Just starts up every time. I hope it works well for you.

Read this article:

Guy was welding, inhaled some brake cleaner smoke, ended up in serious condition.

I read that and then a week later I inhaled smoke from a collection of chemicals I was using to un-stick a corroded fastener...I freaked out.
got a buddy that says it's ok to just clean it(foam filter) w/ carb cleaner and put it back on. makes sense--if any cleaner gets into the intake, it would get burned off somewhat safely and cleanly.

update: test mow

well we've moved to our new home, and i've since mowed a few times...

the new mower is significantly quieter
i enjoy the "pull and go" mow (no primer nor choke)
the extra power and larger wheels are much needed(softer, thicker grass)

as long as it remains reliable, i'll be estatic!

next spring, i'll change the oil to synthetic

update

just an update...i originally bought the mower for the great deal, not expecting to use the supplied bag. i failed to realize our new home has several trees, and w/ them come the "joy" of falling leaves.

so now, even tho the grass has stopped growing, i find myself "mowing" fallen leaves. NO MORE RAKING LEAVES!
