    northstar power washer 1578812G

    Tracked down the part - Thermal relief valve - no one really has it in stock but Comet Pumps but I found an online shop that can get it from them and ship it to me for less time or money than Comet or other stores. It’s a $12 part but most places want $30-40 for S&H. Sorry no go with them.

    Richard - Thank you for the feedback. I was hopping not to do so but will try and find time tomorrow or Friday before leaving for the weekend. My son wants to power wash this summer to make a little money. He and his friends are hoping to start doing so next week. Thanks once again

    Need to get up to speed on ZTs

    Oh yes - Puppy 1 of 2 both were happy! They ran all around and wore themselves out following me while I was mowing. They wanted to ride with me like they do in the Mule and Tractor but not on this machine!!! If they jump there is no way to stop fast enough.

    Need to get up to speed on ZTs

    I would agree with the wide deck being easy to get closer. Mowing with my 60” when it sticks out about 6-8” from the wheels / body made it very easy to get close to the fence lines and they few trees/obstacles I needed to get close too. If it did not stick out body would rub etc.

    How to shore up a wooden pond spillway?

    Here are a couple of pics from the other side of the dam overflow. Ignore the boards. The 2x4 floated in and the ply wood is what I call the coyote perch - find their crap on it all the time (it’s been there for years - I need to remove it.).

    6 foot Bush Hog rotary mower

    Check if the mower is rotating I the correct direction - gears somehow in backwards - PTO spinning wrong direction somehow? If the bolt sticks out beyond the nut a bit maybe drill a hole through it and put a corresponding in. Cutting threads or tack welding will make it very difficult to ever...

    How to shore up a wooden pond spillway?

    One way to do this if you can locate the smooth aluminum boards - like in my photos - is the install smooth silicone aluminum place 1/16” or 1/8” thick along the flat face and then up the down stream face of the vertical groove which the boards slip into. This would then allow you to use typical...

    How to shore up a wooden pond spillway?

    Wood Boards are going to warp in short time. I have a dam spillway that is purpose built and uses aluminum C shaped “2x4’s”. We lay a bead of grease from a typical grease gun along the edges and smooth face ends. These then are pressed against each other by hand and all water is sealed. Using...
