Mower FOD

For reasons not relevant here, the lawn mower suffered some Foreign Object Damage:

Lawn Mower - bent blade mount
Lawn Mower – bent blade mount

I’m sure the hard stop loosened the tolerances along the shaft, but the mower fired right up (with that new blade!) and has no more vibration than usual, despite the seriously bent blade mount.

I no longer have a deep emotional attachment to lawn mowers, which is apparently common, as the label advises me there’s no need to change the oil:

Mower Engine - never change the oil
Mower Engine – never change the oil

Drive it ’til it drops …
