    I call this mower cursed because it spent more time in the shop last summer than it spent at my house. It breaks almost every time I mow with it. I didn’t even make it through the first cut this...

    I don't think some of you understand I already had the starter rebuilt in the beginning of April. Less than ten starts later the starter is acting the same way it did before I had it rebuilt. It...

    The first time it wouldn't start last summer I pulled the mower apart and tested all of the safety switches. They were all working. I could also hear them clicking. I even talked to Grasshopper...

    I am no expert on floods, but I wouldn't think there would be grass and mud packed up inside the "dash" if it was flooded. I might be wrong on that.

    Here is a picture I took back when I took the starter out before it went to the rebuild shop.

    There is plenty of evidence that the mower got very wet and muddy. The "dashboard" is full of mud. I...

    I hate buying things over and over again and throwing stuff in the landfill.

    The issue with the current starter is the previous owner apparently buried the mower deep enough in mud to get mud...

    That might be it, but I literally had this starter rebuilt by a local shop in April and it had ten starts on it before it acted up again. I'll probably take it back to them, but I really don't want...

    If there is still dirt in the starter that would indicate it wasn't properly cleaned out when it was rebuilt. I am assuming the voltage drop is the starter drawing a ton of current, but not actually...

    Kubota D902E. The OEM starter is a Mitsubishi 16824-63014 and costs between $400 and $450 online. You can buy the Chinese junk starters for around $100, but I don't want to be replacing the starter...

    I’ve been through the wiring and all looks great. I verified the wiring on the starter was tight when it wouldn’t start yesterday. The voltage dropped when I turned the key to the start position so...

    I think my zero turn mower is cursed!

    I bought a used 2019 Grasshopper diesel zero turn mower with 189 hours on it last summer. I had all kinds of problems with it initially including a starter that didn't always turn over. I realized...

    I'm curious why four foot truss spacing? Menards has a pole building designer that offers 9, 8, 6, 5, and 4 feet truss spacing options. All options except the four foot spacing have a pole under...

    Lester Buildings was one company who told me the weight of sheathing and asphalt shingles would require extra trusses. They also told me that it would be problematic to place trusses between the...

    Maybe I'm reading the installation instructions wrong, but LP seems to want Smartside lap siding nailed into studs 16" on center, or they have an alternative fastening system for 24" OC studs.

    The...

    I think if I went to the city and proposed pole construction, but with sheathing and siding to match my house I suspect they would approve it. The problem is you're not saving any money by the time...

    City doesn’t allow post frame construction unless I have five or more acres. I have three acres. The real issue with post frame I think is the vertical steel siding. I have to have siding and...

    I saw something about buildings being limited to 40 feet. I am planning on 44x60x16. The 16 is to store a large motorhome.

    Is the Tough Sheds everyone is referring to really Tuff Sheds? It appears they don't panelize anything near as large as what I want to build. I am checking with a local company I found.

    If you want a GC to oversee the building process I might have the GC contract with Sheds Unlimited as a subcontractor. It sounds like a really nice building if you will have it fully finished with...

    I wonder how I would find someone like that here in the Minneapolis area? I am planning a 44x60 garage.

    The city I previously lived in replaced everyone's water meter. Here in Minnesota they are all inside the houses. As part of the water meter replacement project the city also inspected to be sure...

    I thought a rotary laser level is the way construction is done these days. I bought a good one (At 50% off it was still around $400.) from Amazon Warehouse Deals about two years anticipating my...
  24. How can I use a rotary laser level with a building in the way?

    I am looking at possibly building a much larger garage over top of my existing garage. The current garage has eight foot ceilings and the new garage will have 16 foot ceilings. I think the new...

    The Habitat Restore store near me has gotten really picky. Basically, if it isn't new building materials they don't want it. I was at the store about a month ago and it has mostly turned into a...
