Just as title says, heres a few pics of my first ever rider. I bought it to mow my 1.2ac yard which it works wonderfully for. Prior to the pics i was on it for 5 hrs, dethatching my yard. I could not believe the amount of thatch that i got up. i bet i emptied 40 or 50 "loads" from the mower if not more. i cut grass @ 2.5" and figured out a few spots that i need to be careful of for scalping the lawn. Anyway, first 3/4 of yard or about first 4 hrs or so of run time the mower only used 1 tank of gas. figured itd be worse than that on fuel.

also if you look in the background you can see how well my lawn mower did cleaning everything up. Makes me wish i would've taken a before and after pic!

Heres some pics.

















401.9 hrs


My friend snuck a picture of a VERY dirty dusty "me" as i was parking lawn mower in the garage

oh i will, my biggest gripe so far is how to go about cleaning all the grass debris out from between the mower deck and belt/pulley system. i did everything short of unhooking deck to get as much out as i could get

Compressed air! or a leaf blower.. Just wear eye gear so you don't blow sand in your eyes. :)

Looks like you'll have a nice healthy yard now. And I'll bet you can't wait to put another 5 hours in the seat.

That's totally crazy! Should have gotten a snow blower attachment with the Deere!

I know what you mean about the crazy weather. We didn't get snow here, but we had the air conditioning on last night, and tonight the fireplace. Welcome to the midwest.

According to tractordata.com there is a blade attachment for the LT160. Can't throw it, but you can push it out of the way.
