Creative Mower Deck Cleaning

Recently I made a little mistake. I filled the gas tank on the push mower before setting out to clean the deck. On our mower if it is leaned back on the handle it leaks gas all over the place. I didn’t want to wait the couple of weeks that it would take for the tank to run down enough to lean the mower back so I used the ½ Ton Chain Hoist from my previous post, and some rope that was laying around the barn to make a cradle for the mower. Christopher got a good laugh while he watched me rig up my little harness.

The harness worked great and I will never tip a mower over again to clean the deck.

The Moral of the Story is: When at first you don’t succeed go for overkill.
