28. That was my initial thought as well...

..... you can probably find a used unit for a few hundred dollars. It might need the occassional coaxing or minor repair, but overall probably the best solution.

Any kind of rube goldberg you could come up with would probably cost more and be more troublesome also.

I have a Husqvarna rider that I bought used at the local ranch store for $850. I've put over 200 hours of hard use on it, I've had to have one spindle replaced and have gone through a few blades (my fault, hit stuff). The thing starts and runs like a champ and with 2 acres to keep mowed I'm damn glad I bought it
