    An old 21" snapper with a 2-stroke Robin. Still runs and cuts like a champ, not sure how old it really is but I like it. :D

    Just found the original receipt for my oldest mower. Its a 1995 JD 14sz 21" mower. I always thought it was a 1990, but hey, its now 5 years newer than I thought. The thing still runs like a champ.

    Similar to this one, but a four stroke Robin. Mine is an '83, it cuts and bags like a champ, the drive system is rock solid, only problem is it's HEAVY! They used real metal in those things!

    I also have an older Sears garden tractor with an opposed twin briggs, probably 70's vintage. It's not used for mowing, but I use it for grading and if I needed to pull a roller or aerator or something that might not be good for a hydro.

    hey brad, is that one of those that has "John Deere" spelled out in big aluminum letters on the front of the deck? I always thought those mowers were cool looking.

    01 bobcat 48 belt drive. Has a rebuilt engine. I bought it when I started my business brand new. Its pretty much a backup now but still cuts great. One crew was using it for dethatching this spring.

    This world is way too small. First we both have/had Dixies. Now we both had JP push mowers???? I had a 1994 JD 14PZ.

    The oldest mower that I own is my 2003 Dixie Chopper. I cleared out all of my old junk last year including a 1940's era push mower powered by a 1.5 HP Clinton engine. My newest is a Craftsman 21 inch powered by a Honda. I picked it up last year. Nice mower.
