Re: Lawn Level Rake what width

I think mine is 48” - the larger plane is really nice, but there are some trade-offs. It’s heavier and harder to get into tight spaces. 36” would be a nice size, but that’s probably the minimum width I would want.

Re: Anyone able to take advantage of lower mortgage interest rates?

Fees can definitely vary from lender to lender, but there are always costs associated with doing a refi. The “no closing cost refinances” don't get rid of those expenses - they typically either add them to the principal or exchange them for a slightly higher interest rate. So you either pay them up ...

Re: Anyone able to take advantage of lower mortgage interest rates?

We're currently on a 30 yr at 4.875% Lender says they can do 20 yr at 3.375% So, 1.5% lower. That would increase monthly payment $15, with closing cost of $5584 ($999 origination + $1649 3rd party fees + $2936 prepaid insurance/tax in escrow). I'm unsure how to do the break-even on this.

Re: Gorilla Cart Mods/Accessories

It would be neat to outfit one with a poly tank and a boom to use as pull-behind sprayer. I've been researching a slightly different idea. A 10g tank, Evenflo 2gpm pump, with 50ft of hose and a 3 nozzles boom. I can do a single tank mix and spray the back, side and front by just moving the cart aro...

Anytime I work with mulch I find a pitchfork works best.
Good call. I have seen local landscaping crews use those. :thumbup:

Re: Best mulch mover/shovel???

Maybe one of those big scoop shovels? I have a poly one that I use for different stuff.

I also highly recommend one of these narrow shrub rakes for working between shrubs.

Re: No String Trimmer Recommendations

Power Rotary Scissors

The prices have come down a lot - there is a link floating around here where people are buying them for less than $250 now. Still not cheap, but better than eating ground glass. :thumbup:

No. I work for a large for profit(well not much profit the last few weeks) U.S. based company.
That's pretty uncommon. Most of us have to play the hand we're dealt.

Re: What type of Lawn Tractor Battery is this?

Group size is an industry-standard for batteries that indicates both the physical size of the battery and the polarity - i.e. where the positive and negative posts are located on the battery. You should have no issues with any replacement battery in that U1R group size with the same CA/CCA or higher.

So, do I need a U1R? Or a U1?
U1?
I would just look up the group size of the battery you have. Interstate says that SP-30R is a U1R.
