I'm like a 1/2 and 1/2 kinda guy. I rake and clean up when I get piles of them, but as they fall little by little I just mow them in...

Re: Anyone have experience with the B-Hyve controller

I use the 12zone and before that the 6zone B-Hyve and I don't have anything bad to say really. I wish the scheduling was a bit more robust. Right now you can pick even or odd days or set specific days of the week, but I would like to have a every 3 days option. Sometimes every other day gets to be m...

Re: Show us your garage!

I built a new garage about a year ago... well start of the build was well before that but we got concrete in there about a year ago. I kinda did a classic Knomore style garage, build it big, build it once. I am by no means done with this thing at all. I still have years of work to do to get it exact...

Re: New to reel mowers - what do I need be aware of while shopping the classifieds?

I would check to make certain the engine starts, and that it runs well. Most people don't know how to, or who to, have a carb cleaned and they just let things go to hell until they can't deal with it and then sell it. So run it for a while, like minutes not seconds. Check the oil, level and color se...

Re: Sprinkler Blow out Question

I bet you still use them at some point this year, but I would still do them all come winter no matter what. No need to risk anything breaking just to save a little time.

Re: Monthly water bill??

We are kinda lucky here in this area the water table is fairly close to our soil surface and we have this crazy layer of sand about 4ft under the soil. So we elected to drive a point well and use that... basically whatever the cost to run the pump motor is all we have to pay for the water we irrigat...

Re: WWYD?

If you can't mow over it now I would fix it, because whack'n a head with the mower is a real bummer. If the mower cruises over it without issues then I would probably wait until I had a good stand of turf there that will survive being torn up and put back in place. I have a couple of heads that look...
