FYI: Pipe wrench before the screwdriver 😂😂😂

No way, if it makes it past 1 or 2, it's getting stabbed and will drain while I crack a beer. As you know that screw driver is lighter, faster to use and can get in a ton better places than that pipe wrench.

Only once the end of the filter is mangled from multiple stabbings and sharp tin sticks out everywhere do I try and be gentle up by the adaptor housing, knowing I'm gonna already have to clean up some internal threads, if she comes off in 1pc. we are in the clear. After that, the adaptor's coming off with the last 2🤣

Just finished mowing today on the Hustler Raptor my neighbor and I went in on and thought I’d take a few pics to share. Has about 440 hours on it and runs like new.

The question about lawn equipment reminded me of this. I put 2 mulching blades and left one normal at the discharge per @hickslawns suggestion, works awesome. With my tore up shoulder my son mowed with it for the first time and ask him about it. He said man it is fast, I took off like I was on the old one and was like whoa. I was like yea it is.

I might have read this backwards, or you got it backwards. One or the other. Lol. Middle blade and discharge side is where I use the Gator blades. I leave a high lift on the closed end of the deck. It seems like if we use all mulchers the grass doesn't discharge quite as well. High lift on closed end of the deck helps shoot it thru the mulching blades and out of the deck.

As did I. What's ure situation that makes ya have the regret?
Nothing, yet. Thankfully. Just shit I've read and others have said on the comparison of the two. I did save some money though and beat the crap out of it, without issue thus far.

Dang! And here I thought I had it rough… getting close to 50 hours in season 1. You sir, are the winner! 😂
Ahem. . . Bet I have more hours than Adam. 🤣

I wish I could have gotten two Kohler's last year. Had to settle for a Kohler efi and a Kaw carbed. Yesterday our Kohler motor mowed about twice as much as the Kawi. I put 5 gallons in it to top it off. The Kawi took 7.5 gallons. That said, I'm not sure if my foreman had it completely topped off to start the day.

I went and picked up a hitch for ours today. Should help with fall cleanup. Also grabbed a tune up kit. Mostly because they had it available and shit sure ain't getting any cheaper.

One of the first accessories I picked up when I got mine.
