What I bought, that my parents use while I am at college...

2002 Simplicty Legacy Garden Tractor, 4WD 3cyl, 27.5hp daihatsu deisel (built for briggs), 60 inch shaft drive deck, shaft drive hydro, rear 540 pto. (My parents helped (read: bought, with my discount and advice) with this one... its one helluva lawn mower... you should see the hydraulic lift snowblower with electric spout adj... this thing is trick!)

2000 lawnboy gold series cast deck 2 cycle selfpropelled push mower
(last year for the 2 cycle and offset deck)

2000 Sthil fs120 trimmer

2000 Sthil SH85 blower/shredder

2001 Sthil MS280 chain saw, 20 inch bar.

I either bought or made my parents buy top of the line stuff so they I (and for now, they) would have something that will last, and do a good job. IMO, nothing cuts better than a simplicity deck. People rant and rave about how good John Deere is, but I say they make 'em green so they can hide in the grass when a good one goes by.:lol:

Working as an outdoor power equipment technicial really lets you know what is good and what is junk. Granted, the cheap stuff does the job, but people dont realize that they are meant to be thrown away, not fixed.


Brando, that is a helluva good saw you have... old too... I take it the Toro still works good?

Digging this topic back out of the hole....

Yes, the Toro lawn mower still runs great....haven't had to do much of anything to it except clean the carb out (all gummed up). It had been sitting unused with gas in it for so long before I got my hands on it, for free.

I replaced the muffler ($6 shipped) today, because it was getting noisy (old one was rusted out). Sounds great now.

I actually started painting it today, engine shroud was rusting...so I tried the sandblaster out, cleaned that up, and painted it black. Next up is to paint the cast aluminum deck, toro apple red. The old paint is just flaking off.
