Default The lawnmower thread

Many saw pics of my lawnmower from the Frankenbonne thread.

It'* a White 16hp tractor w/46" cutting deck. And this time of year (leaf season) it is in the garage for a quick clean up every few nights.

I was gone for a while Saturday helping the exploding furnace neighbors kids and I come back..the crew says "we tried to start or move it..but it doesn't do either."

I leave this puppy in my unheated shed all winter w/o starting it. It might move a little slow but it always fires right up after sitting for months and months.

The crew killed the battery trying to start it. I thought HTF did they do that? They tried to relieve the hydrostatic transmission and couldn't... don't worry guys..Randy'* the only one I know capable of that trick.

I toss the charger onto the battery and it fires right up. Moved it out back to make room in the garage..

As I picked up leaves yesteday I lauged about them trying to start it the whole time... I came up with a question for all.

Who was the one that tried so hard and failed at starting a simple lawn tractor?
