Just rename the forum Chainburn and we're covered regardless.

PS: @born-again-biker - I hope you're all over the "AU falcons doing incredible things" facebook page.
Haha.
Not long after I bought my glorious AU ute, a mate at work told me about that FB page.
So ugly, yet so incredible

Sounds like a score Moorey on the new to you saw, best of all you didnt have to buy it from ‘that’ dealer.

If i could ask, slight change of topic but do any of you guys run a ride on mower? Whats the best value? Husky’s any good? Moving shortly and will have approx 1/4acre worth of grass to mow, thinking just a little one, but with a catcher. Or just get a new self propelled mower?

Probably be more relyable given the number of not working second hand rideons for sale online, but im already moving another 15-20minutes further away from my ‘local’ trails so i need to score back some time somewhere!

I did think about welding some old forks onto my current 30odd year old briggs and stratton so i could hook up a mtb behind it, but its been on its last legs for the passed 13years. Thankfully all its had to do is mow the huge 4mX3m townhouse lawn.

it's nice having a big chainsaw but for most jobs a good 16 or 18 inch at biggest will suffice.

When I had that tree come down and block access i got a mate (Who does lots of tree felling) come down with his 20-24 inch one (I can't remember exact size) to cut out a chunk of it so I could get easier access at least, but he also has one of those really big ass ones which iirc he said was 36-40 inches or something.

Ride-on mowers are silly money when you look at what they are. But I guess they're a niche.
If you're half handy at fixing things you could prolly save a ton buying a broken one that needs a few days spent on it....?

I did ponder buying one that needed fixing up, then when i go searching for information re: model ‘x’ there seemed to be endless complaints and issues and thought i dont want to buy something that i need to spend time working on it with any sort of frequency ... Then again maybe a lot of the broken ones have had a pretty tough life, mowing paddocks etc maybe, or commercial use?

Was hoping for something in the 2-3k range, maybe a stretch more for a little husky etc, still pondering a self propelled mower but they arent cheap either, if the self propelled is say 1500 and a ride on 2000-2500 then i think the ride on could be worth it for the time saved?

We've got a little Rover Ride-on that's done a good job on our acre that's probably 2/3 grass over the last couple of years. It was somewhere around $2200 from the local Stihl Shop
