And I think I may have found the reason why my deck has been cutting unevenly.
One of these things is not like the other, eh?
You know you're not supposed to mow rocks, right?
Pretty fun new playtoy, huh? I had the kids lifting me off the ground the other day. I sat in a small choker hanging from the hook while my little girl laughed with delight as she ran me up and down.
If I ever decide to upgrade to a 330 cubic foot argon tank (175lbs - ish) , I will use the gantry for that and save my back. It comes in handy all the time.
