re: Zero turn mower buying advice - ManOnDaRun
Agreed. The Ferris looks like a great machine. My brother in law has one, and wishes he had gone one size up, which is the 2100. I don't know that I need these crazy expensive machines when i'm only going to be cutting 100 hours of so a year....

Zero turn mower buying advice - ManOnDaRun
I just bought a five acre property in a suburb of Houston and I need a mower. No hills, but a ton of trees. About 2.5 acres is movable presently with the other 2.5 being woods. The local dealer sells scag, kubota, and ferris. From all the research I've done, I'm having a tough time deciding. I'm...

re: Worth Pre-Wiring a House for Alarm System? - ManOnDaRun
Thanks for all the help, guys. Will certainly be pricing this around to see if I can find something cheaper, or doing myself. Appreciate the insight....

re: Worth Pre-Wiring a House for Alarm System? - ManOnDaRun
[quote]When I built homes I would charge $300 to pre wire alarms.[/quote] Can you elaborate? Is that with all materials (contacts included) and labor? Small house? Big house? That seems REALLY cheap. Just want to know what I should be aiming for when I go try to find my own guy to do it....

re: Worth Pre-Wiring a House for Alarm System? - ManOnDaRun
This is why I came looking for advice. Obviously, if I thought this was a good price, I wouldn't have asked around. I'm sure my contractors love the fact that I'm questioning the expense rather than just flat out agreeing. ...

re: Worth Pre-Wiring a House for Alarm System? - ManOnDaRun
Hence why I came to the OT. :lol: If it's easy enough to do myself, then I'd much rather save the money and put in a little elbow grease. However, back to the original part of the question, is a wired system even needed anymore? ...

Did you also input all of the magnets for the door/window sensors as well, or did you contract that part out? Trying to figure out how complicated this may actually be....

Worth Pre-Wiring a House for Alarm System? - ManOnDaRun
I know there have been several topics on SimpliSafe over the past few days/weeks, however, I'm looking for some thoughts on something a little different. We are currently building a house and one of the options we have is to pre-wire for the alarm, however, this cost is about $4,000 (estimate), so ...

re: Anyone use SimpliSafe (home security) - ManOnDaRun
Anyone have thoughts on whether we should pre wire a house for an alarm or just go with this? We are currently constructing and pre wiring costs $4k. Everything is going wireless nowadays, and I don't know if it's worth prewiring or just going with strictly wireless. ...

Does the website work for anyone? I can't seem to get any of the links to work, and wasn't sure if it was user error or not. [link=(http://restore.la.gov/)]LINK[/link]...

re: Adjustable Basketball Goal (5' to 10') - ManOnDaRun
Thanks. I appreciate the advice. My thinking was not to buy the smaller one, and to just bite the bullet on the bigger one hoping he'll want to shoot on it if it's there. However, if what I am looking for was available, I'd probably buy it, but I have a feeling it isn't made....

re: Adjustable Basketball Goal (5' to 10') - ManOnDaRun
Most of these responses are fair. I'm not saying he shouldn't be shooting higher. If he were on a team that played on an 8 foot goal then I would want him to shoot on that goal. However, he doesn't want to play basketball at all because he can't reach that high. I'm trying to just get him interes...

re: Adjustable Basketball Goal (5' to 10') - ManOnDaRun
Wow, thanks for your insightful post. What about wanting a basketball goal has to do with the Pussification of America? Because I want a basketball goal? Because I want my kid to be able to shoot on a goal that he can actually reach? Again, thanks for your valuable contribution....

Adjustable Basketball Goal (5' to 10') - ManOnDaRun
Looking for some help finding an adjustable basketball goal. I am having a tough time finding an adjustable basketball goal that goes from about 5 feet to 10 feet that doesn't have to be permanently installed. Every goal I've found either goes from 5' to 7.5' or 7.5' to 10'. My son is only 5, so...

re: Anyone with experience with after-market car video? - ManOnDaRun
I really hadn't looked at brands yet. Most of the options on Crutchfield are Audiovox. Not too much experience with them as a brand. I was planning on coming off the head unit that comes with the car. It's a 2014 Highlander XLE if that makes a difference. It has an 8 inch navigation screen al...

re: Anyone with experience with after-market car video? - ManOnDaRun
Thanks. I don't see that they sell any of the equipment in the store. I guess that means they wouldn't mind if I brought in my own equipment. Is $199 a good price? Not sure if other places might be cheaper if I buy the equipment through their store. Any ideas?...
