    Main pulley removal from Countyline finish mower

    I am trying to replace the gearbox on my Countyline 72" finish mower, but I'm having trouble getting the main pulley off the output shaft.

    Leaf Baling Machine

    I never would have thought of such a thing - A leaf baler. I wonder what they do with them. Compost? Fuel for energy or heating? Or just a landfill? What other odd machines are out there?
