    Give the mower a clean and add tyre shine

    Ps, I ran over my mum's sprinkler on the ride on through it 10m away
    Put LED headlights on the mower so i can cut at night.

    Headed out onto the lake to plow snow for the kids to have hockey rinks, also made paths out to big lake for the ice fisherman.
    Took some pic's of Bosko's DogHouse, first time from the lake in almost 3 years due to the lake never really froze solid.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    I used about 20 feet of the 50 foot hose from my Vacumaid Garage Vac Pro 50 so my detailing vacuum. Anyway, I bought a cheap paint brush and had some copper electrical wire that I used to create a “brush” with the drill that helped me scrub the pipe. I duct taped it to my vacuum hose and it worked fantastically. The first shot of the brush fit great but I had to hack it up with scissors to allow the lint to get vacuumed through the brush.

    This one shows the brush I made with a drill. And also shows how dirty the siding was behind the cover.


    And this is the view after I hacked up the brush some so the lint could get through to be vacuumed. And it is now taped to the vacuum hose.


    Before, well you can tell the dryer vent pipe desperately needed cleaning.


    After. You can actually see a little piece of a 2x4 that I ended up getting with another pass after I took this picture. No clue how that got there.

    Spent some good time really going through the garage and throwing crap out and cleaning stuff up and finally finished up today (finished for the moment):

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Spent 3 and half hours cutting the lawn by hand with a push mower because the bloody ride on has chucked it in.

    Don't ask me how my neck and back feel....Please don't ask

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    I spent 5.5 hours mowing non-stop today in horrible humidity. No ride on for me...........





    That humidity has sent the grass crazy. The above is two weeks worth of growth, the edges done vertically and the taller material slashed down around the perimeter. This offers a smoother, neater edge. I also slashed a couple of sections to make it easier on the mower. I had to double-mow this lawn, as in cut on a high setting and going back over it on a lower height. This method is easier on the machine, helping to prevent chute blockages and and engine stall/bog. Even still, the poor thing worked HARD today.









    I'm actually pretty beat up after today. Have I mentioned I HATE summer!

    It's also one of the reasons I charge accordingly. I don't do walk ups, I don't charge beer Bob prices. It's hard work, work than people clearly don't want to do themselves.......the price reflects this!

    I tip my hat to you DFB, is the mower self propelled with this rain i have mowed more this year than last. It's just dry grass usually and dusty but we are talking paddock grass not fancy city grass

    We have had weekly storms with heavy rainfall, that and the humidity has the Kikuyu growing wild!

    The mower is self-propelled with a 3 speed gearbox and a drive shaft rather than belt drive. I resisted self-propel for a long time due to their weight, could not do without now.......I'm not 21 anymore!

    Meanwhile, why is it I have such an urge to go and polish out the swirls on the gloss black engine cover?
