Same here. If I wait more than 5 days tween mowing I get clumps of grass even mowing at 3 1/2". I'll be happy to get to once a week mowings.

We’ve had a LOT of rain last week. Way too wet to do anything. It cleared off Sunday afternoon and by Monday it was dry enough to mow and not get stuck in the mud. Started the mower but the blades wouldn’t turn. Took a while to figure out what was wrong, trip to the dealer,replaced the switch for the electric clutch and got a little mowing done.

Yesterday planned to finish because some of the grass is 8-10 inches tall!

Mower wouldn’t start ignition switch is bad! Out of stock at my dealer so ordered one from our friends in Pennsylvania. Should be back in business in a couple of days. Fortunately both switches are snap in mounting and plug into the wiring harness. Kubota ZG127S with 277 hours. Shouldn’t be having trouble this early.

Now for the “if it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck at all” part of the story. The BX tractor has a belly mower so,I decided to mow with it this morning. Takes longer and doesn’t do as pretty a job but at least get it done.

Left front was flat as a pancake and when I tried to air it up I could hear the air leaking out. Took the tire to the dealer and now I’m setting on the porch with a glass of tea watching the grass grow.

My old White (MTD) 42" ride on mower finally popped it's clogs. I've been patching and repairing that old thing for years but a few weeks ago it crapped out big-time while out mowing, so I finally accepted it was time to lay it to rest.



This is a good time of year to buy mowers being end of season and all, so I decided to go get myself a 5ft finish mower at a decent price. It's got the mulching kit, so my days of bagging my grass clippings are over for now.

I really couldn't be happier with the finish on the lawn. It's taking a bit of effort learning how to mow with a rear deck, but thats the fun of it I guess.


The best thing is it gives me a little bit more seat time in the kubota. :-)

Nice set up quincy. I bet you'll like it better than the little work horse that has past on. RFM does take some getting used to, and you might need a small push mower for tight spots but you'll get er done.
