My 10525 has been out of commission for a while now - robbed parts off it for quick repairs to other "for sale" DF mowers. Well, thanks to grn68rt and some parts from him, the 10525 runs again. Just finished cutting with it as a matter of fact and let me tell you - I've always been a fan of the F-Series (6431 Owner) mowers and had originally planned to sell this 10525, but after cutting with it again today I decided I'm going to grow old with that mower. The gator blade makes the grass disappear. It's like I'm mowing with an invisible bagger that never fills up! Gotta love a mower that make cutting grass enjoyable!
