Here is a pic of Tommy's Lawn Service from 1981. It is me on my Fathers 1968 Cub Cadet 125. 12 hp Kohler, 48" cut, hydrostatic transmission. At this time I had this lawn (ours) and 3 others. This is in the early stages of striping. These mowers couldn't cut while turning, so it was common sense to keep your lines straight. My other equipment was a 18" Jake push mower, an Agway bottom engine weed eater, and a corn broom!
