    John Deere 130

    I was helping my neighbor get a snapper push mower running that she wanted to sell. It was her late husbands and had been sitting outside for 3 years... Today I told her it was running and ready to go...When she picked it up she asked if I seen any cheep riding mowers for sale....I opened my big mouth and before you know it this was sitting in my yard for me to get running... She got it for $100... I've been helping her and I don't really mind...I hope I can get this running quickly so she can cut the grass in her back yard..I already committed to cutting the front for her.....

    I have not really got into yet..The guy she got it from said it was his fathers and he was using it 6 months ago...I'm not sure what happened, but I don't think the guy could start it.. Looks like he changed the seat and the wires for the "missing" safety switch are just sitting there... right next to the fuel shutoff he knew nothing about.. I guess I'll find out in a few days...

    Well the mower is up and running... I'll be happy to get it out of my yard.. The 9 hp Kawasaki motor runs really well, and it cuts pretty good too. I cut my grass with it today. Had to replace the deck wheels, plug, ignition switch, the pto switch and the starter (used).. I changed the drive belt and put a tube in a tire and cleaned the carb...I also made 2 new wheel brackets for the deck wheels..they came out nice... She ended up putting just over $100 into it in parts... not bad.. One more mower put back to work and saved from the scrap yard...and I don't have to cut her grass in the back yard anymore.
