I picked up these today from a fellow close by, said he sold his house and can't use them at his new place, saw real estate sold sign on the front lawn.
They measure about 60-62" cut, looks like all the parts are there, the reels spine nice but some of the wheels have a lot of play in them.
There is a label on 1 of them but I can't read the manufacturer or the model, serial #s.
Hoping to fix them up and use on my grass, I have a lot of wide open areas.
They have a real simple setup for hooking them together.
Paid $125.

That's not a bad deal Doug. Dad bought a 5 gang reel mower just the other day, it needs some fine tuning and the reels need sharpened but it seems to do alright. It definitely doesn't like any weeds. He also bought 3 new reel mowers a while ago that we are going to build a frame for.

Tried pulling these around the lawn tonight, only 1 unit seems to turn the reels properly and cut, the other 2 are slow on don't turn at all. I'm sure the problem is in the wheels there is way too much play in them, don't think they engage the gears inside the hubs right at all. Project for another day.
