Life hack- if you drop the blades to the ground and let let the sun burn your 1/4 inch long grass you don’t have to mow nearly as often! 😁

A reminder: blowing grass into the road is not only dangerous for motorcyclists, but also illegal in most states. I'm sure Taylor blew it right back into the yard

get a mulching kit for it, blocks off the side discharge for a closed deck, with all of your trees you wont have to rake before you cut.

Black truck + chrome wheels = awesome! The trailer needs the wheels being finished in chrome to match! Would look so good! Especially as the tyres need to be replaced anyways 👍

Typically there’s an adjustment on the hydro pump to match speeds left and right. Just a pressure adjustment

Seems like its got some idling issues after the 6:47 mark.. you hear it throttling up and down. Clean that carb well and the jets, or get a new carb. Also, again around 8:10 when you hop off it and you hear it "hunting" throttling up and down.
49TAndrew 2 months ago
One other thing is on newer model mower decks blade belt covers are pass through so when you blow the mower off your grass doesn't get caught up in those covers.. maybe use your plasma cutter and create a square hole on the back side of them.
49TAndrew 2 months ago
also something is rattling.. check all them blades, but I bet its something on the chassis or motor.. like the chute connection maybe or like it kinda sounds like a flywheel noise.

should have put the mower on the lift to fix the center blade issue :P

So when the Koeler goes its getting a K swap of 6.3 with titanium exhaust and 3 pc wheels. Also I appreciate the dad joke with Deck size and the obligatory laugh, all the people over 30 probably gave a legit laugh because we come from a time of Christ Farley and great Adam Sandler films.

Should throw a turbo on or remove the governor or sum to make it faster lol, looks to slow. Feel like it would be so much more fun skooting around mowing the lawn🤣 but never the less great investment, could start cutting neighbors lawns to make back the money you spend or even start a lil side hustle, my man Taylor out here makin moves👏🏽

seems like a good deal, i work on them daily and the one thing you want to watch out for on the kohler courages is when you go to start it and while its running you will hear a little hisss noise coming from the head gaskets its a common issue. easy fix though.
