Do we tell them they mounted it wrong? It's only 180° off.....
Maybe they're trying to protect the front tires?

Yes the back wheels was driven with a chain inside the post.

My unit had no mower. It had a tree trimming device.

Oh-my, Kevin - I just can't resist:

So where is the hopper for the garlands and the lights??

Always do the right thing; not because it's easy, but because it's harder.

It's always a pleasure to work with good tools and the BX2370 is amazing!

My blog. I try to add wisdom, not noise.

Re: Gravely slept with a Farmall ......

We hung a rope seat swing in the arch and put it in our local prades for the prom queen to sit on. I'll look for more pictures. You coulf drive right over top of one row of Christmas trees with the arch. Even 12 foot trees would slide right under.
