  1. This old guy deserves a round of applause. <iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qzDLZa01bYU"frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  2. True, and during seasonal clearance you could get 7 to 9 acorns if you acted quick enough. I am a huge weber fan , just not that huge. If you bought the floor models at the KJ road show you could have a trifecta for near the same money.
  3. If someone lifted a KK and ran off with it they need a sponsorship to the next olympic games.
  4. I respect a man that does his research. You get far more for your money if you do the home work. All corporations have entered the consumer market to stay profitable. If you want quality you have to become informed. The sad truth is most companies only produce a couple of quality mowers in the sub 3500.00 range any longer. If you want a quality John Deere on the scale of the old 425 you have to go to the 500 or 700 series now and lay out 8 grand plus for it. I would rather restore a classic. I am restoring a 1985 Troy Bilt horse tiller at the moment, when I am done it will be like new and last another 30 years.
  5. For that price range the Husqvarna GT52XLS with kawasaki power would be my top choice. The only other power I would consider for that range would be Honda or B&S Vanguard v-twins. These two engines use to be built on the same short block produced in japan. I am currently in search of a low hour John Deere 425 lawn and garden tractor , possibly the finest LGT ever built. Very nice sub compact tractor. The old deere tractors with hydraulic spools will go a few thousand hours with proper care.
  6. I had a Husqvarna GT52XLS.I liked everything about it for the money ,kawasaki power , fabricated deck ,heavy transmission and it didn't break the bank. I sold it and bought a John Deere 318. 1992 model with 600 hours. Let me just say,they truly don't build them like this any longer.These are true sub compact tractors.
  7. Thanks for filling me in on the Huskie. That's one mower I have no experience with. The big thing is if you buy a mower, I don't care who's name is on it, from a big box store you get consumer junk all made by the same company. The lure of these mowers is price. Example: Buy a John Deere from say Home Depot and try to get warranted service from JD. Ain't gunna happen. Buy the same looking mower from a JD dealer and it will cost more because it's a real John Deere.Koehler was bought out by Briggs. You don't see them around much any more. Bottom line here is buy from a big box and expect to buy another one in a year or two. Local garden shops do most of the warranty work on those machines. Go around back and look at their junk pile and write down some names. Good luck with your new mower. This is the 100% truth about the transmissions. Anything less are throw away after they break. The very top Husqvarna mowers are well equipped engine and transmission wise, but they are 3500.00 or more.
  8. You guys need group therapy. Hi,I'm so and so and I am a kamado waxer.
  9. The vision lump I bought at sams last year was the best of the west and it was that Miss Keet stuff , who ever she is. I like premium lump for the better value.
  10. That is a strange looking chicken.LOL.---Ken
  11. As long as I had a good seal I would just leave that as it is .---Ken
  12. It is made from one of the ironwoods . It is good. There are others made of the same wood. I think the difference is the sorting that takes place makes the Fogo a premium grade. The passed over goes out under a different brand name.
