  1. Help getting more power from 8hp engine (k181)

    In your first post you said blades are not sharp. Don't underestimate how much sharp blades will help with cutting grass or taller grass.Speed and blade sharpness is very important.
  2. Need Advice

  3. I was a Journeyman Lineman for 41 years ( electrical not football) and of course I am old.
  4. Finally got a 520H

  7. The time has come.

    Although I don't know you personally, I do feel I know you through this form.We serve a great GOD and through Jesus we can ask for his help in times like these. 953 Nut said it very well, that all things are possible through our savior Jesus Christ.Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary,They shall walk and not faint, Isaiah 40:31. God speed and a quick recovery. Bob
