|Here it is, sitting at the curb, in the hope that someone will pick it up for parts.|
As lawns keep on growing it was imperative that a new one be purchased. So that was my task of the day and I found one relatively quickly and easily. It was the cheapest one available - a little narrow, only cuts a 14" swath at a time - but much easier to push around than the old one. I'm sure I will be happy with it.
