It's maiden voyage was yesterday....I didn't drive it through the fence

Took the yard blower and blew off all the clippings and then connected the cutting deck water wash and set the deck to it's lowest setting and engaged the cutting blades....

It was waxed and black plastic treated with Mother's product before it's maiden voyage.

Will keep it looking and running like new.

Just so you know, the washout connection is not effective for long term care of the mower deck. Make sure you visually check it once a month or so to ensure it is not getting clogged up. Also clean it at the end of the season by hand.

And I waxed my lawn tractors as well. They cut a lot better when they are shiny.

I did that for the first year. Now it's been sitting outside for 3 years. The rain keeps it clean .

Does the lawn tractor have an hour meter? Sears lists it as optional for that model.

I dont think it does. The seller or real estate agent are being way to difficult on everything. I asked to meet the seller, look at shit he's selling and ask few house questions and so far agent doesn't want me anywhere close to seller.
My real estate agent said it a normal real estate practice, but it makes zero sense for me

I'd pass in that case. Too much stuff could be wrong with them and those prices aren't great. If you want them, then offer $500 for both. Then if they suck, you can sell them on Craigslist.

Planning on buying that snow blower from him for 300 and will deal with lawn situation later. Owner said takes him about 1 hour to do lawn or can pay $45 to landscapers. Maybe ill get lucky and he leaves lawnmower for free

Ps. It doesn't have hour meter so who knows how old that thing is
