We've had several minor mishaps this summer, one of which was having Rory (our ride-on mower) throwing off his drive belt.
We can't risk being without a mower, we have plenty to mow, and different grass areas require different mowers.
We have an ordinary motor-mower for the lawn in front of the house, and (now) 2 ride-ons for the other areas.
Rory had started to show his age and had been complaining by throwing off his main drive belt. He's now had a total service, and is back to A1 condition, but we thought it time to find him a younger brother.
So here is 'The Red One' (as yet unnamed) who we hope will cope with the job. He has a big rear bag for collecting all the cuttings; Rory just chucks it out at the side.
They seem to be getting on OK. Only time will tell.
