NEW MOWER!

Well, I finally went and did it!  After months of snooping around at different types of riding lawn mowers, I decided on this Troy Blit 30 in. mower.  The one that I bought looks just like the one pictured above.

All of my Life, I have been mowing grass, with a push mower or walk behind that is self-propelled.  But now, that I’m getting older and just starting to have trouble mowing all the grass here in one session, I have found that it wear’s me out.  I can’t seem to do it all at one time.  Had to mow the front and side of the house and then stop.  Then finish the rest later on or the next day.  I got tired of this.

I had looked around at all the different types of riding mowers and

 the people that make them.  I had to keep the price within reason and I had to watch out how big the mower deck was.  I found that the 42 in. mowers are too big.  I don’t need a big fancy one.  Just one that will store in my shed and not take up much room.  This one fit the bill just right.

At first I had to play around with it to get to know the different controls and the levers that make it work.  I’ve only had this for about a week now, and have used it twice so far.  It works nice.  Has 6 different speeds to it.  The fastest is the setting on 6.  It really goes!  I have it set for 2.  This way I can just mow along at a controllable speed.  It sure does save time compared to before.  Now, I can mow my yard all at one time.

It does have 1 or 2 draw-backs to it.  I can’t mow into a 45 degree angle.  Have to mow around it.  Using the Reverse Lever I have not got used to yet.  Mowing back-wards is not a good thing to do.  It has a 18″ turning radius, so it’s not like one of those zero turn mowers that can get very expensive.  So far, I like this.  Cleaning the mower deck is another thing I have to figure out.  I still have my Craftsman Self Propelled mower for finishing all the spots that I can’t access.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
