I asked my friend Scott if he would be willing to change the oil and blades on my lawn mower, because I had neglected it for several years.
Next thing I know, he has it completely taken apart, and then he discovered that it had some rust problems on the mower deck. So he pulls out his sand blaster to take care of it, and then took it home and welded some weak spots.
And now my mower is back and working great!! He thinks I should be able to get another 5 years out of it, which is sweet – I don’t want to have to buy a new one if I can avoid it.
