History
This was my father's old lawn mower that my mother bought him for Christmas in 1983. He used it as his only lawn mower until 2006, when he finally decided that it was costing too much to keep repairing. After he got another one, I decided that I was going to take it out in the woods and have a little fun.

Since the summer of 06, this Murray has endured a true test year round that includes, but isn't nearly limited to: going up steep hills, running over small trees, going through the mud and water, climbing rocks and logs, pulling wheelies off ledges, ramming and pulling various objects, etc. So far I have had to replace the steering control arm 8 times, the entire front end, two rims, numerous tires, the whole steering mechanism a few times, the transaxle twice, and probably some more things I can't think of. So far it has been Murray red, black and silver, British racing green w/ a white offset stripe, gray, blue w/ white stripes, and now orange with a black duel offset stripe.

If it ever had any, they're not there anymore.
Wheel and Tire
Gasoline. And it burns almost as much oil as it does gas.
