    push mower we got for free because it smokes like a freight train. Yard is only about 100'x100' so it works.

    Once a week I use my Snapper Pro 36" Commercial walk behind. The other two times per week (Yes I mow my lawn 3 times a week, I have bermuda) I use my MTD 21" push mower.

    [​IMG]

    I use the Snapper pro to mow 14 other lawns that I maintain as a side business.

    It can be mowed once a week. I only mow my customer's bermuda lawns once a week. However, if you want it mowed short and you want it very thick and green, it needs to be mowed 2-3 times a week during the summer time because it LOVES heat, humidity, and fertilizer. Add a little water to the equation and it grows like crazy. The green leafy portion of the plant is only about the top 1/2-1/3 of the plant. Cutting it once a week during the heavy growth periods tends to scalp it a little and leave it "stemmy" looking. It's a great turf for blocking out weeds. In the summer, it gets so dense that it naturally blocks weeds out.

    Lol, Nice exhaust pipe. If it smokes that much, I think the rings are gone. How much oil does it consume?

    Pro conduit stack, custom made by me lol

    And I think it needs valve guide seals because it only smokes for the first 5 minutes of running then stops. I top it off every other time I mow, it doesn't take much.

    Rear engine Snapper. Had it for 14 years now and have only replaced the clutch disc and done regular maintenance on it. Oh and just put a new blade on it this spring. I keep meaning to pick up a new belt for it, It's gonna break on me one of these days from the looks of it.
