After viewing the Bolens brochures, I finally know what has been lurking in the shed for many years ... it's in undetermined shape, but I hope to drag it home in a couple of weeks and see what can be done to get it going again... anyone have one in working condition ?

I used to have a neighbor that used one every week to mow his lawn. I tried several times to get him to part with it, he never would. Neat little machines

You definitely don't see the lawn keepers too often but the other one to have would be the estate keeper which are even harder to find.

I'm 99% sure that's what it is... it'll be a couple of weeks before I can retrieve it, but that'll give me some time to read the directions on how to post pics here :smile1:

It was used to mow my Great Aunt's lawn way back in the late 1960's... I liked it even way back then !
