Anyone out there collect and restore old lawnmowers besides mowing grass?
I have a bunch of old lawnmowers but i don't consider myself a collector because a lot of them are junk.
I take them when I find them. My oldest is a 1930s Rotary brand with a Clinton engine. I have the original documentation for the engine. My other one is a 1979 Toro push mower with a 3.5 hp Briggs
I just just picked up my first oldie. Its a 1964 bunton walkbehind 36". Engine isn't running, so I am looking for another.
My welder friend wheels and deals with old "hit+miss" engins. He has 2 old reel mowers with these engins that he takes to different shows.
You just had to ask
Here it goes.
1963 30" locke reel mower
1963 70" locke triplex reel mower
1963 70" locke triplex w/reverse reel mower
1967 70" locke triplex reel mower
1976 75" locke triplex w/reverse reel mower
(196? 25" locke reek mower coming soon)
1964 JD 110
1965 JD 110
1968 JD 110
1973 JD 110 (electric lift)
Two very old push reel mowers.
I use 1967 Toro Sportlawns rear throw reels....best mower ever made. Except, dog doo- AKA PEANUT BUTTER, just flows through the reel and towards the operator! LOL
I have a 57 Locke 25" w a 14r6Briggs. bought at Goodwill
I have an original Snapper push mower circa 1978 that has the BBC control. It still runs great , and has never been torn down for a rebuild. Once in a while, I get it out and cut my lawn with it for nostalgia.
i would like to see some pics of these machines, I like seeing "heavy engineering" from way back
