It has been having some difficulty lately, and last week it finally wouldn't start. So, I took apart the carb, cleaned out the jets, and gave it a general tune up. It's running like a champ again. The sad thing is, it still looked rough. Its silver paint was flaking off, the bag was completely soiled, and the pushbar looked sad.
So I gave it a quick and dirty makeover.
Tomorrow I am going to make my lawn my bitch.
