Riding Lawnmower

Does anyone know where I can get a riding mower for cheap? I have a ton of grass to mow, and I am only going to be at this house for 3 more months. I have a push mower, but it takes the better part of an entire day to mow the front and back yards. Any suggestions?

-Chris

If you are only there until you ETS...Hire someone to mow before you leave....Much chaeper than buying.

Give the Oak Harbor rental places a call, they advertise "lawn and garden" equipment.

with the gearing he has on this one, it will go up to 45mph. He's building another one from scratch that should do upwards towards 60
