    Friend of mine retired from cutting grass in 2000. I bought out part of his company back then. This is some pics of an old lesco he still uses to cut his property. He actually has 2 of these old mowers. Thought some of you might like to see some pics of well used mowers.

    He does have the foot plate, but had it off for some reason.

    That is a well used mower. I'd be a little uncomfortable without a cover on the deck for the belts though.

    Yes the mower runs. They still cut about 2 acres every week with it. They have the cover on it when using it. I think he probably had it off to grease it.

    I got on it, cranked it and drove it around for a minute. Lets just say, mowers have come a LONG way since that was made.
