Here is my push mower. I added a storage box type deal to hold shades, rags, water bottle or whatever.

I had a toro just like that. I loved using it! That was the easiest mower I have ever used. I used it for 5-6 years at home, and at all my jobs. I drove the thing in to the ground with all the work. I bought a John Deere push last year. I liked the toro more!

Hi Rick,

That looks nice! What is your review of that mower so far?

What did you make that box out of? It looks very functional.

I think the mower is nice(when taken care of). It was my moms and used by my brother.....so it sat uncovered through many rains and snow and the key start is broke.

I made the box out of a yard sign a library put out for trash.

I liked it because the speed. It did not pull you across the yard. The quality was good. One thing that I did not like was the height adjusters get worn out. Other than that it was a pretty good mower.

Rick,

Did you ever play around with sheet metal? I bet you would love it! You could bend it in all sorts of directions and fabricate boxes like that one you just made.

Well back in 2004 I worked doing metal siding and I used a break to finish off facias and and boxes around posts
