    That engine also looks to be about an 8hp or so. Don't know how it would even pull a 48" deck.

    Kinda looks like a camo paint job. That mower is located the next town over from me. But I think I will pass on it.

    When I think old........I think older than myself. If you look at the design of the mower I would bet there is only a small amount of changes to the belt drive you can buy today. Nothing really new in that department in the last 25 plus years.

    Only thing that is good for is scrap metal, they'd have to pay me the balance of what it costs to haul it down to the scrap metal yard and whatever they pay me for it by weight.

    When mower company come up with a design that works they build them for long time Like my 1988 DC looks and built same as my 2011DC
    Just like my 1960 reel mower looks just like 2012 reel mower but just few # less:dancing::dancing:

    The decks look completely different. They are more in a "v" shape now and the back of the decks are much closer to the wheels. Big difference is the shute opening.
