    I couldn't imagine riding that thing off the back of my trailer. It may cut great but it looks like Sh@t.

    its 68 years old

    i wouldn't use it for commercial work.....but its super cool. its the history of this buisness. I wish i could buy it and turn it into flyer/ advertisment of some sort... perhaps i'd mow my own yard with it..

    But how many of you think your ZTRS or walk behinds will be on craiglist-earth-your area in the year 2076... anyone think they will look any better then that...

    just my .02

    we had 2 Lockes when i was growing up. thats the only mower i used untill i was 16 years old and started working for somebody else. for the pull start, you had to wrap a rope around the pully and pull it, then do it again and again to start it. its the best cutting mower ive ever used though. i would put that up against any $12k ztr
