    Is it worth it to buy the Echo CS-310?

    My wife claimed the first one of these I bought. I liked it enough to buy a second one. The vast majority of our use is on oak trees, and these little buggers work hard. My Jonsered CS2255 rarely gets used anymore. We wore out the chain tensioner on one of them, only about ten bucks to...

    Mowing Steep Hills

    I mow some pretty steep hills with the older version of https://www.advancedmower.com/new-models/2022-husqvarna-ts-348xd-960-43-03-19-28558565b . I put lugged tires on the rear. The electric locking differential makes all the difference.

    Gutter kit for Stihl backpack blower?

    Correct. There are several pictures on the link. Mine are screwed on, as we get lots of wind.

    Gutter kit for Stihl backpack blower?

    We live among hundreds of oak trees, and have wind often. Gutter covers eliminated the problems for us. Got them from Costco. https://www.costco.com/easyon-gutter-guard-5%E2%80%9D-version---100%E2%80%99-.product.100019377.html

    New mower time

    It appears they no longer make the vertical shaft model.

    New mower time

    My property is 5 acres, steep grades, and mostly native grasses, weeds, and brush. I needed a manually-locking transaxle. The mower I bought has a Kawasaki twin, a heavy duty transaxle with locking, and will climb hills with the front wheels off the ground. Overkill for most others, but...

    New mower time

    You might want to keep an eye out on Craigslist. When I bought my house, a JD L130 came with it. It had a Kohler Command in it, ran great. The transaxle was awful, but the engine was great. Sold it for $400 to a guy with a level yard. You may be able to find a good engine in a junk mower...

    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

    Again, there is no welding process for thin, DIRTY metal - and the OP kinda indicates that he's not interested in cleaning off the years of buildup prior to welding. That's why I suggested a quick and dirty solution using pop rivets.

    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

    Any welding will require clean metal. Pop rivets and a piece of sheet metal will not. Much less effort. Doesn't sound like beautification is the goal here.

    Any way to weld the thin metal on tractors and attachments?

    An alternative would be to pop rivet a piece of sheet inside the fender. Not as elegant, but a quick and dirty way to get the job done.

    Garden tractor reccomendations?

    I love and respect mine. too, but she likes to groom the forest to look like a park. After 33 years together, she also knows that I can fix anything. I love the fabricated deck on the mower - it's stout and easy to repair. When we bought the place, it included a Deere L120 - ran great, but...

    Garden tractor reccomendations?

    Bought a Husqvarna back in April, 2017. Another new GT48DXLS owner - Thanks to TBN I have steep terrain with lots of emerging rocks. Also lots of trees, so I went with a 48" deck instead of the 54". This is my riding brush mower, used for reducing the fire danger on my five acres of mountain...
