It’s That Fucking Time, Again

Spring time, yay.

Miserable fucking shit.

The yard here really ain’t that big but it manages to kick my narrow little ass every time I mow it.

It’s Karma getting even with me for being a cheap, evil bastard.

A few years ago I had to go buy a new mower because I got tired of fucking with the old one my Buddy Steve gave to me. It worked great for a long time but then it started in with it’s shit and every time the lawn needed mowing the kid couldn’t get the fucker started and I got tired of having to mess with it.

Off to SEARS I went.

Being the cheap and evil bastard I am and with the kid doing all the mowing at the time, I went with, mower, lawn, basic.

It has a bag on it but isn’t self propelled so ya gotta push the little bitch.

Now keep in mind that I just mowed the lawn for the first time this year three weeks ago.

The weather was decent enough for me to do it last week but I still had a bunch of stitches in my mouth and didn’t really feel like fucking with it so today being Saturday and a nice day, I went after it.

I didn’t think to take a picture until after I had already hit the really bad spots  but in some spots the grass was taller than the top of the engine already.

 

This how much grass there was from one pass,

It looks better already but the yard work season is just beginning.

    • Every time I bring it up the old lady throws a fit and says we don’t need one, no place to store it, yadda fuckin’ yadda.
      Yeah, “WE” don’t need one because “I” am the motherfucker mowing it, not her.
      I’m thinking I am just going to find a small one on Craigslist, bring the fucker home and she can find out about when she sees me riding it around.

  1. If I had my way, there would be goats keeping my 1/4 acre under control.
    I hate that shit, but I gotta tell ya, after a couple of supposed good quality motors (with the initials of bs) at $600 a pop on my old zero turn, I got pissed off and went to Ebay and bought a 60″ Dirty Hand Tools (I shit you not) zero turn mower. I had it shipped to my welding shop with the intent of reinforcing the mower body before it got all out of shape, but as it turns out, the thing didn’t need it.
    I’d have to rate it as a best buy so far.

    • Anybody that names their business “Dirty Hand Tools” better have some pretty good shit.
      Probably some guy that got tired of paying good money for shit that don’t last.

    • You haven’t seen my neighbors lawns yet.
      Buncha anal type fuckers.
      Perfectly manicured, edged, sprinkler systems, the works.

      Not quite putting green care but just like the stuff around the edges.
      Assholes.
      I feel guilty just finding a Dandelion in my yard.

  2. If you’re dealing with lots of clippings and fighting the bagger, just mow without the bagger, come back after 2-3 hours of sun and then bag it. They say 50% of the drying occurs within 4 hours of cutting. Yes it’s more walking, but less cussing.

  3. Get a Toro from a real Toro dealer (not Lowes or HD). I had 1/2 acre to mow. Bought a Toro with a cast aluminum deck and Suzuki 2 stroke engine. Used it for twenty years. No rust. Started on the second pull EVERY TIME. Gave it to my brother in law because we sold the house.

  4. We in mexafornia where having a brown to dead lawn is heaven.
    Do not need to mow the weeds just chemical them down to nothing.
    Saves water, which we don’t have any way, save gas and wear and tear on mowers.
    Plus all the dust blown into the air from mowing dirt.
    plus you don’t get any notes from the grass nazi.
