  1. Finally had a good downpour out of a thunderstorm today, and the forecast is for a pattern change away from the bone dry 99+ temps. Thank heavens.
  2. The one good thing COVID did for me at work was to eliminate the traveling salesmen that used to call several times a month. These were the ones who had what looked like a cross between a hand truck and a piece of rolling luggage with them at all times. That carried a big assortment of catalogs that ended up having less choice than McMaster Carr or Grainger. And, everything only sold in a case quantity, and was about 4 times what I could buy locally for. In the 25 years I had to deal with them, I never bought anything , but there always seemed to be some new perky person willing to try it again.
  3. Many of the sprayers I have been around in the turf industry had the same shortcoming. I think it ends up being a balance for the manufacturers between pump affordability and flow. The pump you have isn't strong enough to achieve full flow for agitate and the boom at the same time. One that would be is likely 3 times or more the cost. See if you can get an agitate nozzle with a smaller orifice in it that will fit in place of what you have. Or put a ball valve in front of it if it doesn't have one already, so you can regulate flow more so than pressure with the regulator.
  4. 795161 is another Briggs part number. That's the one I have had for years. I think both may be limited to stock on hand at this point.
  5. https://www.ebay.com/itm/335416016832?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&mkscid=101&itemid=335416016832&targetid=2295557531710&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9008337&poi=&campaignid=19851828444&mkgroupid=160536780385&rlsatarget=pla-2295557531710&abcId=9307249&merchantid=101680809&gad_source=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpeG3iJushwMVZEhHAR25YwkOEAQYBCABEgL7nvD_BwE
  6. 1997. 250K miles, but as you can see, no rust. I put an entire new A/C system in it earlier in the spring. Heater core and compressor were leaking when I got it.
  7. Lift kit is done. Zone 4" with lower control arms. Came apart and went back together pretty well with some very good instructions. Haven't driven it yet but I'll report back when I've tested it thoroughly.
  8. I got my Chauffer's license (prerunner to CDL) in 1977 when I was 16, in order to be a substitute part time school bus driver. And that in Fairfax county Virginia on the outskirts of Washington D.C. And, the buses I drove were all manual transmission. Seemed perfectly normal back then driving a bus loaded to the hilt with kids in rush hour stop and go traffic. It's so unbelievable now, people probably think I'm making it up.
  9. What makes it a "high crop"? Doesn't look much different than other utility tractors, but I'm no expert.
  10. Salesmen love to brag on aluminum not rusting, which it obviously can't, rust being iron oxide. But, it certainly can and does corrode. And, if there are steel fasteners involved, galvanic corrosion will ensure that you can never take it apart.
  11. A lot of confusion also comes from the fact that you can be driving a "commercial" vehicle that does not require a commercial drivers license, but does require a medical card, fire extinguisher, etc in some states. The 10,000 lb trailer thing was originated so that U Haul trucks close to the 26,000lb limit could still pull a trailer up to 10,000. But that is not the current interpretation in many places. Like I've said before, don't take anyone's word for it on the internet, read and understand the actual laws in your state and wherever you plan to go.
  12. OUCH!$ Around here the tire slicer is the hidden smashed culvert end going into a hay field. Don't want to think about what those have cost me.
