Best Uses
I use my SPX2042 to cut my 5 acre track of land and my ditch.Now that the dealer put a 'kit' on the crankshaft pulley,it is much better.Yesterday, I noticed my left front tire was at an angle. I pulled it off and found out it had bushings not bearings.I replaced both bushings on both tires.The bushings are metal,the tire shaft is metal.Its metal rolling around metal.You better keep her greased and check tire wobble regularly.
