Hummingbird Rescue – Maine 2012

This little hummingbird was unable able to fly because a small piece of sponge was stuck to it’s foot. This little hummingbird was remarkably relaxed. After removing the sponge and spider web it finally did fly off. You’ll notice that it turned back and flew towards me as if to say thanks. Some people never see these little birds, but I was lucky enough to actually hold one and help it out. I’ve had a lot of people flip me the bird, but I’ve never had one rest in my hands like this before.

We had the chance to save a little hummingbird that was unable to fly. It was quite amazing how this little bird sat in my hand as I was able to figure out why he couldn’t fly.

How to Repair John Deere STX 38 Mower Deck

If you’re here then you probably have a John Deere STX 38 or similar yard tractor. These STX tractors with the black dek are know for having issues. After having persistent problems with the mow deck on my tractor I thought I would post a short video tutorial on how to repair he deck on a John Deere lawn tractor.

In my case the bearing in my idler pulley had play and was allowing the belt to slip off. I’ll be posting more resources such as the parts list and an actual John Deere STX 38 repair manual.
