Early stages of zero turn mowers

Looks more like the ground stages for a tractor pull than a grass cutter. I dont think it was a good idea non.the.less to put the caster wheels they chose on the front. I believe they would do more harm then good.

Some people don't know junk when they on it. It will be interesting to see if anyone bids on that POS.

The tires are the only thing worth anything and he is taking them off.

Jest at mowers like that if you must but remember if it wasn't for a mower like that then the ZTRs that we use today either wouldn't exist or would not be at the stage of developement that they are. This may very well have been the make and model that inspired Art Evans (Owner-Magic Circle a.k.a. Dixie Chopper) to make his first ZTR.

If I lived closer I certainly would pick this bad boy up and reburbish it.

Dang it, Richard! Thanks for killing "the illusion"!

All this time I've been riding around on my Lazer, head held high, pretending it was the direct offspring of some massive bulldozer or a powerful military tank! Deftly manipulating those hrdro handles,...feeling rather snug and manly........mowing down everything in my path.......

...and now I'm going to be left thinking of that puny little "dune buggy" oh, the horror, the horror!... whaaa!

Thanks for the let-down......
