Lessons From The Lawn Mower

Awhile back I happened to be over at Desert Greens Equipment here in Albuquerque, picking up some parts for my lawnmower.   I saw the owner and took a few minutes to visit with him.  I’m in there a couple of times a year it seems like for one reason or another.  He asked me about my mower and how it was running.  I told him it was running great.  He asked me how old it was.  I told him “18 years.”  He was impressed.  He told me that most owners (it’s a John Deere lawn tractor) get about 8-9 years of use from their lawn tractor before they die.
