:wave: Digging around on the internet and found this old ad of a reel mower.

I see that the motor is cooled by a belt driving a fan mounted on the side of the head.

Its a Bolens but it is really a Gilson.

Wow, that's a neat ad. Wouldn't you be the envy of the neighborhood back then with one of those? :D

That's one of the very early Gilson/Bolens mowers that they made.

That is a very COOL mower, thanks for sharing. Wouldn't be neat to find one of those in a back corner of some old barn?
