I had an opportunity to mow tonight and started up the task. I finished the front yard and started on the back. Just about 15 feet into it I heard a thud and no longer heard the blade spinning. I thought I had thrown a belt so I looked back to see if it was dragging. Instead of the belt I saw the entire blade sitting on the ground. The bolt that holds it on has been sheared off. Now I need to find parts for my nearly 30 year old mower.

Web, here I come! That's definitely going to hamper your mowing.

See what happens when you put E85 in your mower!

I haven't put any in the new 17hp I/C engine, but E85 probably had a hand in the demise of the original 10hp engine.

The blade looks good for being 30 years old!

We had an engine issue about three minutes into our 1st mow of the season - the repair would've been too much vs. just buying a new mower. Then, we got luck and found an electric--yes, ELECTRIC w/cord--in the State Farm classifieds for $70. Best money ever spent! Will never go back to gas again.

We have too much yard for an electric, unfortunately.

Since we have had so much rain, my grass has grown too quickly between visits and mowing (not to mention being too wet to mow at a decent height). Since I have someone mow it I didn't want to deal with having to keep gas on-hand for a touch-up or two so I bought an old-fashioned push mower without the motor or gas or electricity. My yard is big but not so huge I couldn't manage the pushing for some exercise and touchups. And if I really feel the need to stink up the neighborhood and make a lot of racket I still have my small self-propelled to help. I tried out the push mower and it works great--the grass is just a bit long and wet to do a good swipe without a lot of effort. If Debbie comes and gets it down, then I can do some touchups without so much work.

Hope you find a good one that will do the job right!
