It's time to tune the Log Splitters Or Handle Smaller Wood.

1. It's time to tune the Log Splitters Or Handle Smaller Wood. I'm doing both due to needed repairs/upgrades. I love 4-6" dia wood, 8" dia Back Stick, 12-18" dia wood quartered or in halves.

2. The North TX temp below 70s will allow me to crank the 1hp 9-12 top splitter.

3. Since I split on the half means friends can help me or I'll help them sharing time or wood.

4. This season is really getting off to a strange start because the friend that called today needs usual welding repairs vs any wood (nor do I have room for a stick, "Yet".

5. I need a Right Arm due to too many lifting chores. The deal is on, I'll Repair his over worked Zero Turn for his 10 acres of cutting. I'll ask him to move some heavy wood that will allow me to burn smaller wood until my arm is rested and well.

6. Trading can get to be a balancing challenge, true friends (from 60s) realize it does not always balance equally per visit. LOL.

If your friends need some stressed or broken welds repaired on their Dixon Zero Turn or Ridding Mowers. Take it from me and tell them to just bring the Floating Deck where the repairs are needed “Only” (vs helping to R&R the deck). Even for a friend that is too time consuming vs the welding repairs. I think they will Slow The Mower or Purchase A Tractor to cut th open City Property (that has never been occupied, appearing as Parks but new holes and Etc). This was our 2nd repair in about 5 yrs and I hope our last.

There possibly had to be some neglect for the deck to need as many stressed or broken welds repaired.

I used to regularly repair one of those for a doctor who loved to cut his lawn. He bought an entire new "transmission" for his, which I installed, and then about two years later, he bought something new. He asked me if I wanted it free.

I took it, along with the snow plow. The used tranny, I sold on ebay for $150 and the Dixon, I sold for about $400 without the plow.

My 1960’s friend is on his 2nd 800.00 trans since his Mid 2,000 used 1,500 purchase. He is sold on the mower’s performance but the repairs are dictating Misuse or more is needed. With Real-Estate (yards, lots and acres, maybe pushing cars), the Zero Turn has to be the most versatile mower but I know my friend forces matters!!!
