When I was in High School it was rumored that someone put something special in the re-fried beans at Taco Bell......

About the same consistency and texture, but maybe a little smellier.

I haven't ate there since.

At Mickey D's we aren't even allowed to spit in the food of rude customers.  They are very strict about that.

Change the subj just a little.  Time for a new grass trimmer.
Anybody using the electric WORX.  I see them on TV a lot and see a 20V for $100-120 and a 32V around $150.

Nope - I have a Ryobi 2 cycle gas that I only run on Ozone Action Alert days....  I've had it about 8 or 9 years now.

I go through a feed head about every 3 years - but those are interchangeable for the multi tool setup they came up with for it....  which wasn't so useful - but it is nice being able to put a new head on it easily for low cost.

Come to think of it I need to pick up a new head!

Thanks blue2!

Rechargeable drills are fine, I have a Dewalt (Black and Decker up brand) and a Bosch SDS Hammerdrill (don't tell MN)......

Rechargeable trimmers aren't.  I'f get a Stihl and be done with it.  Agri-Parts on Lewis is a Stihl dealer and he's a good guy to deal with, I go there and if he can put up with me, he must be okay....and they aren't that expensive either.  The Germans have figured out how to make an inexpensive trimmer in the United States......

I have a 30 year old Stihl FS66 straight shaft and it runs and runs plus you can put on a brush blade and take out small trees if you want to.  I run the poly-cut 3 blade head, no string at all.  3 nylon blades that free swing.  I have a string head but I never use it.

Took my deck apart.  I need at least 4 tapered roller bearings and some seals so I'll be going down to Detroit Ball Bearing tomorrow.  Dang bailer twine eats bearings....

My buddy said  that he wasn't able to take his spindles apart,  What he didn't do was heat the spindle casting.  Cast aluminum expands more than a steel race.  I heated the casting and the races fell out....  go figure.  If in stock, will be mowing soon..... ;D

I just happen to have a green 4020 or are you looking for something a tad newer ?

I am looking for a much newer machine, and that's a little small for what I'm looking for... But I could use it, if it's in good shape, and the price is right.

When you get a chance, can you email me your price, and maybe some pictures, please?

Right now the tool I use the most often is a bastard file.  I use it to sharpen the blades on my lawnmower and my hoe.  And some of my hand tools.

Blue, I never sharpen lawnmower blades.  I just replace them every spring.  Agri-Supply sells Oregon branded blades cheap

The tool I use the most is my brain.

I have a couple of sets of blades. They don’t get beat up. I just like to keep them sharp. Seems like I get a cleaner cut.
