Sunday Globe

Well, I did basically all the neighbors today and right as I was finishing a path between there steps and driveway my Ariens found their globe. I did not even finish mine, I did one path out from my shed and started down the street. Awesome. After reading some online and being a little scared about built up energy referenced here and there, I went out and got it out. I was thinking it would be a real PIA, but was not too bad. I guess my good deeds were seen from above and he gave me a break. After messing with it for maybe 20 or 30 minutes I was back in business. No place to put it though, its pretty ridiculous.

a good source for parts on line is partstree.com... I buy all my repair parts from them for everything from chainsaws to weed whackers to snow throwers and rotor tillers,, they have listings for just about any piece of lawn and garden equipment made..their prices are good and shipping reasonable... service is as good as any I have seen.....these are usually OEM parts.. unless the company has been out of business for years...then they will have a substitute..

A good run is better than a bad stand!

If nothing else, take a look at your oil. If it is black, change it, today.
you'll also have better life if you use synthetic oil.. it can handle the extremes in temperature much better than traditional oils...

I already went to Maestranzi Brothers to pick up the two Ariens belts to have on hand, just in case. Always have bags with shear pins and wrenches. Held off on ordering the extended chute that I would have needed to install if we had gotten any more snow right away...... My 1978 machine has earned a good maintenance overhaul by a qualified tech this summer. It done me real good this winter......
