This mower is so COOL!

Cost me $635 out the door with tax and fees. They were about $2700 new!
The lil Yanmar single starts up first pull, but you HAVE TO remember to release the compression or its not fun.

No kidding? Well with the huge tires, the wide cut and diesel, you made out. It'll last you and keep its value for a very long time.

Yeah, with the Yanmar, its quite a rare, odd, but badass mower.
Made here in FL, too.
We now have a range of sizes. A 21", 24", 30", 36", 42", 48", 54", and 60"! That's between myself and my buddy Adam who I mow with.
Picking up the 48" today, its an Ever-Ride!

Most of this side is sanded. Rain has kept pace to a slow, slow crawl.

This is some serious acreage sanding a bus. I've sanded the front, rear and one entire side so far. I still have the driver's side and the roof to go for a first pass. Been working on the shady side because we went from rain to warm weather.

The monotony of sanding is starting to remind me of rivets and sawing insulation.

On that new mower, if that engine is that economical it might make a good power source for an economical generator. I've seen those for sale here, but it's been years.

CB, Roxy sure has a great taste in tools, lol!

That should keep her busy. Happy wife equals Happy Life.

I have a Yanmar compact tractor, 2 cyl. diesel,15 hp, low and hi range and locking diff. 4wd with snow plow and 60" mower. Works all day in any temp, water cooled and really is a fuel miser.

Nice find Roxy!

John
