Native Iowan, 64 years old and Vietnam era veteran. Live in the country on a small acreage where last summer I installed a sprinkler system...my second one. I just bought a Husqvarna TS3xd from a dealer after comparing price and equip (engine and transaxle) across brands. Looking to do my own maintenance on the Kawasaki 24 hp engine. My property has mostly hilly terrain.
