I am from Union County in southern IL. I own 2.8 acres. I've attached pictures to the east of my home (w/driveway & over to the tall grass), to the northwest of my home (w/the open garage on southside of grassed waterway - corn field behind me), to the northeast of my home (w/cluster of trees), and the 3rd broken front axle of my L130 (still attached to the right wheel).
Bought my L130 new in March 2003. First axle broke 8/08. Next one broke 5/09. And this one broke 8/10. Yes I do grease the fittings, however, upon inspection of the axle bushings last night, they were dry. They showed no sign of wear, yet the axle did. I was looking at my purchase receipt last night and I paid $2499 for that lump of junk. 1 of my brothers is telling me to get a tractor w/a belly mower. I'm just fed up w/JD at this time.
