    Bought a lawn tractor lift so I could get to the blades to take them off and give them a much needed sharpen.

    Doing that on gravel seems a bit dodge!

    I did think of that but it was actually fine, wasn't going anywhere; I think grass might have been worse! There's a metal bracket the larger wheel sits on that's closer to the ground so nothing rotates or slips. You can always strap down the large wheel that's in the air to the lift but some recommend it, some don't.

    I can’t see an issue the pivot point is miles back plus if it falls on you just bench it off

    Two new intercoolers with a size comparison included - New on the Left vs OEM on the right - New ones are approx double the volume and flow far better with a proven 1100hp+ capacity :D

    That made me chuckle! I was so careful I pulled the leads of the spark plugs just in case there was ever a way it would start by turning the blades. There isn't, it's clutched, but hey, best practices and all that.

    You could too, they aren't that heavy. The worst that would happen is that it tipped over away from you but as you mention, it's no where near it's pivot point.

    Not really a purchase as it was a gift from my brother but...
    Samsung Curved 65" 4k smart TV UE65MU9000 and curved soundbar for free! Apparently it has an issue where a row of LED's will go red for a couple of seconds, I haven't seen this yet and we have been looking out for it specifically. dont you just hate people with disposable income :D

    Got me some rupes pads to use on the proxxon nano polisher. Also got the 75mm backing plate and some pads to try and fit on the makita polisher. (with a small tweak)

    Loved your previous machines, will there be a build thread for this one? (I quite fancy building another but have no reason)

    Have you used it much yet ?
    We have the same washer (i think) and the pump seems quite noisy, we were debating wether to return it. We have already returned 2 Samsung washers though.
