well today was decent sold the red ranch king for 225 and the lawnsweeper for 50 yeah me also got the green lawn general done its looks ok for a make shift hood lol! and i got some time in on the 100 wow there are alot of variations on the 100 some had a small steerign shaft some had a large i guess well the new one had a small shaft but was sloppy so i swapped on my shaft and box and upper tower onto the new one and i cleaned the carb out and cleaned up the engine a bit not a great deal but some will get more attention when it gets tore down for resto but its fine for now lol and what else hmm well thats about it for the day did go buy two batteries for mowers today one for the 100 and a spare oh and i dropped off that green ranch king that had the broken push rod got 65 for that so all in all a pretty good day i think but o think ill try for 350 on that lawn general

wow today was pretty productive we will start with where i left off so we tackled the rest of the 100 today had to swap out break pedals cuse the one was bent and we swapped over rear fenders which showed us we were missing a brake return spring and it had the wrong clutch spring on it so some more parts swapping took place got it all back together and what did i do i reverse powered the friggin coil and fried it lol so back apart we go simple mistake of wrong terminal on the switch lol oops my bad after that put it together and she runs lol some time dinkin with the carb and she runs better not perfect but pretty good considering its the original motor and i swapped rims and tires from one to the other also but wait theres more that wasnt good enough for today so i took the two decks and made one out of them the blades from the one are brand new yet yes i said brand new original paint on them factory sharp lol who would have thunk some freeing up of some points in the tensioner and wala good to go mowing and i put my modified wheels on that i redid earlyer and now i got me a good 100 deck so the 60 deck can go back on it lol was pretty productive if u ask me and oh yeah saw 8 deer in the field between my house and the DEERE dealership lol while i was workin on a deere lol wow what a kawinkydink and now for the pics and oh yeah a vid no grass to mow yet here so some dust blowing for yall will have to suffice

today was a no mower work day i did bring in a service job a 2005 lawn boy guy says he wants it to start easyer not leak as much oil and service it so that should be fun did i mention i hate toro no way to look up their parts unless u call a dealer thats crap and i got a call from a guy that wanted to buy that red ranch king awhile back for an acerage that he has told him to go find something bigger told him jd 200 series at the minimum he called me back today saying he found a 212 today and i told him if it was in good condition he should get it will serve him good for a while and it will handle the attachements he wanted to run ie snowblower tiller and blade with no adverse affects so i feel good that i got him on a good path he said he couldnt afford a 3 series though and that would have been better for him yet but the 200 series will also work for him in my opinion either way he will be much happyer with it than the little ranch king and he said he might be up for my snow blade for the 210 for 50 bucks so in the end i get some help too but what i really did today was start raking the yard 8 hours of raking and only 40 percent done and my arms are killing me i need a dethather lol then i wouldnt have to rake as much lol could do the open areas and mulch it back in then lol but for now i guess its just pain and suffering lol either way i go i still got to pick up a rake lol

SORRY NO PICS TODAY

Have you tried http://www.partstree.com/parts/ ? There are some parts they refer you to a dealer, but otherwise it's great for most part numbers and exploded views of unfamiliar assemblies... of course you can order from them, too Wink

Or... go direct to Toro at http://www.toro.com/customercare/commercial/index.html or Lawn Boy at https://support.lawnboy.com/portal/server.pt?open=512&objID=226&PageID=0&cached=true&mode=2&userID=20160 ... either way you'll need the model number (from the data tag, not the common/consumer name) but I'm able to find parts manuals that way...

I hear that nate if they do not personally appeal to me I don't do much but scrap em.I don't care if it's someone elses favorite or not if I don't like it then it's the old motor pull and my scrap buddy's haul off the dead carcass LOL.

Oh yea nate i've always done it I've got really good at what something is worth don't care what it is if I can turn a quick dollar I will buy it.The main thing i 've learned is to not be greedy,like the freezer try for $200 if it's not looking good bump it down even to $50 if need be just remember what you got in it and not go below LOL.
