I do.
Snow plow, Moldboard plow, Cultivator, and Front reel mower.
I have to pickup the 2 reel mowers that attach to the sides in the back. They are new never used. Have to figure out how they attach.

Dang, that's a heck of a nice find.

Especially with the attachments.

... Have to figure out how they attach.


Look at the bottom of this page. Looks like it's mid mounted using a mounting bracket and bar.

There's also a 1 page brochure pic in the manuals section that shows a mid-mounted set of reels. Not much detail though

I did not get it all with the one purchase. The moldboard plow and cultivator I got with a 1960 that I have.

I am pretty sure this is the front mount reel mower that came with the 1959 22447 Reel Mower - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums

Here is a photo of the other (sidemount ?) reel mowers that I still have to pick up. I am hoping they will work with this model tractor.

One of the links you pointed out says for model 220 only.. so I am not too sure :confuse::confuse:

Nice!
You got some rare reel mowers there

I'll have to take a look at my manuals and see if I have anything on them...
