Wow what an old mower. I didnt know they made them that far back. Anyone ever used one? I'd never pay that for one.

That is a really old mower. And they say the red necks live in the south. A camo Exmark. From New Jersey.

Hmmmm my guess it is not all that old. Mid 80's would be my guess. Those old belt drive units last forever. Very few things to go wrong with them.

I Was guessing mid 80's also because of the briggs magnatron engine. That's when they were mostly made. I thought my 99 36 was old.
