Lowes - 28" x 30" for $18.xx. It may be Lexan or something similar but for this use, it's all the same. I ripped it on the table saw to 2, 14" x 30" pieces and that's what I used.

I modified the trap a little because the visqueen was pretty much a PITA. So, I got rid of the visqueen and used some of that crap that they advertise on TV, Flexseal. Told the wife to...

Not always true. The injectors are operated with oil pressure. I have a cousin who has a 7.3 Excursion. It has over 300k on it ( I think ~ 330k) but won't start because it won't create enough oil...

What does 1+ acre mean? A little over 1 acre? If so, you don't really need a commercial mower. I bought a 48" X-mark Quest 10 years ago. That's their non-commercial model with the welded steel deck....

I've been running Mobil 1 5w40 for turbo diesels in my truck for 401,000 miles now, less the first year or so when they didn't make that oil yet. It is a diesel though.
