      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

My old knees won't take mowing the side hill any more so I am considering a zero turn mower. Does anyone have any experience with these? Anything to watch for or watch out for? Brands? Any help and suggestions appreciated. Thanks guys and gals.....

How steep is your hill?

Zero turn mowers can be tricky on some steep slopes.

If you get set on purchasing one, Maybe ask the dealer if you can demo it to see how you like it for mowing the hill.

I picked up a used Gravely 260Z (60" cut) last year & I absolutely love it. It is built like a TANK. Plus it goes 13mph for when you really need to get the job done fast. And it even cuts pretty good at that speed as well.

There's alot of good mowers, especially used.

How much area do you cover? How much do you want to spend?

I do not have that large of an area. A 42-48 inch would be perfect. I tried a Hustler on a road ditch that appeared to be about the same angle as my lawn and it handled it ok. How much do I want to spend? I don't want junk......

Truthfully, they're all basically the same with different color sheet metal / plastic.

What I would look for is a decent shop / dealer. Last thing you're going to want is to be broke down and wondering when the mower is going to be fixed.

Look for alot of parts behind the counter, see if there are alot of mowers backed up in the service area.
