Being a bit of a cheap skate I tend to buy a lot of used stuff. This extends to pretty much my entire complement of yard equipment. About 2 years ago, I stumbled upon this Frankenstein's monster of a mower. It's a very early Exmark 36" walk-behind that has been MacGyver'd or more like MacGruber'd back together thousands of times. I think it has survived 15+ years in commercial service and a few tours in Afghanistan. Being a nice wide 36" cut with a 14hp motor it rips through my hilly and inhospitable yard in no time flat... at least it does when it's working.
