Kee lawnmowers

I've got an old kee that i recently fixed up. I love this thing. It runs like a tank and has enough self propel power so I dont have to do anything but guide it

anybody familiar with them?

ahhh, back when safety wasn't an issue! That looks like a cool mower, and no I have never seen one like that!

great! the front edges can dip a little if the yard isn't even, but other than that, it's great!

yeah, it was my dad's. he bought it in Florida in 1972, and a few years ago he passed it onto me when he got a riding mower. I had to get the Carb worked on, and it's on it's second engine, but it still starts easy and runs great, even after all of these years.

It's kind of cool mowing with the mower you grew up with. I was 10 before I knew that most mowers have 4 wheels

I've sent the pics and video to Kee, didn't know if they would be interested or not that one of their mowers is still going after almost 40 years.

yeah, I remember the fist time I used a modern mower. I was like "what do you mean I have to hold this lever to keep it running, and hold down a different one to make it GO?"

nah, it's a personal mower, but it's great for large areas that you can't use a riding mower in. It was designed as a brush mower.

Kee still makes some great mowers. I thought about buying a new one, but I instead fixed this one up.
