4-24-2011 After nearly 20 years of dependable service w/annual oil/air/filter/blade/spark plug changes, this machine has finally died. After being moved from a standard lot (approx. 6000 sqft) to a 1 1/3 acre lot, this mower blew up. Ka-pow! Belched black and white smoke before meeting an honorable end. Deck, handle, blade are still good. Off to the trash pile this week. Hasta la vista, baby!
