    hi all just wanted to honor a great mowing machine the Murray Twenty. I have had one in the family for about 25 years or so and it still runs like a top and can cut anything (it does eat oil though) they are great!:weightlifter:

    I know there indestructible. My buddy still has his fathers. He uses it to mow his little town house property.

    I put new wheels on it last year and the flap broke and a new blade but other than that everything is original. The engine must have a couple thousand hours on it by now. I will run it till it explodes in my face i love that machine. :usflag::):cool2:

    I have an old 1953 model Huffy 18" push mower, that was my Grandfathers. He gave it to me in 1958 to start my mowing business. It is now 55 years old and runs great. It has had only one engine rebuild in it's lifetime. I use it for mowing really overgrown stuff, as it has a lot of torque. Has a B&S engine and NO safety devices.
