Lawn Tractor

Recommended Posts

I have a Murray lawn tractor, probably 1990-91 model. It has worked great for me for the past 17 years. Well today I heard a metal scraping noise, investigated, and found the input shaft to the trany is wabbling pretty good. I drop the trany out and it looks like the bearing spun in the case. So I am looking for a new mower. I am not a big spender, but i am looking for a 40-42in cut with a 12+ hp. What are your thoughts?

Thanks, Keith

boy oh boy. Askin this kinda question is gonna get a different opinion from every person. Kinda like askin about calibers in huntin rifles. Anyway, I've had Craftmans's for decades. My current one is 10 years old, 19 HP 42" cut, hyro and I get along with it just fine. I cut an acre of turf with it. This is about the time of year they start dumpin the current models at a discount.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
