    Lawn-Boy Where to find the serial number.

    I used the mower a bit today. I ran good I did not end up ordering a belt or primer. The belt I am sure is worn likely original to whatever year it is but the self-propelled portion does work. I took all wheels off for lube but specially the rear. I cleaned out the gear teeth on both the gear...

    Lawn-Boy Where to find the serial number.

    Lawn-Boy Where to find the serial number.

    Since posting this I went to uncle google and have been reading all manner of horror stories on what a pile of junk this mower is, I sure hope not but that seems to be the consensus of what I have read. Probably why it was free ha ha. Thanks for your response.

    Oil & Fuel Kubota L2950 Bleeding Fuel System

    Getting too old to step up 22”

    I too made a step for mine; I hung mine from chains though so that if I hit anything while in the wood's I would not bend anything the step would just swing out of the way.

    I do the egg carton with sawdust and candle wax. I have never tried pinecones; do you treat them with anything or just light them? I will have to try them sometime.

    Kubota L3710 runs for 20 minutes then won't run at speed or at all.

    Kubota L3710 runs for 20 minutes then won't run at speed or at all.

    Can you disconnect the fuel line from the tank and pipe it into a container then let the fuel just run out of the tank for a while? to see if there is something that stops up after a few minutes? I would guess there is maybe something in the line between the filter and the tank. The tractor...
