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.
