Not bad looking at all.

Are those the ones you were talking about a couple of months ago?

Nice looking set of reels, Jerome.
They look like some of the units that were used around a golf coarse and pulled behind the walk behind tractors.
Do you know what they came off from ?

No its another set.

I'll have to look again I did not see a name on them. I also sent you a PM hope you got it.

The guy I got it from said his dad had them 25+ years and pulled them behind a tractor they had but he did not know the tractor.

Jerome, are you going to fix it up to pull behind or try to mount it under the tractor like the original mowers were ?

I am going to try to make it look as original as I can.

Do you have any good photos of how it goes under the tractor?

Don't have any good photos but I do have a manual for the real mowers.
My daughter gave me a scanner for Christmas so I could scan the manual into my photos and email them to you.
  • wilberj said thank you

Jerome,
Good news, glad to hear you found a set.
Thanks for the pictures & watch your fingers when you're working on them, got a nasty cut as a kid.
