I guess it is o.k. if you have the type of lawn and flat that it can be used on, but other than that it looks to be in good shape.

That's one of those transistional machines! Like steam powered steel ships that had wooden decks and sails! I've always found them interesting. They say reel mowers mow better than rotary mowers. How about a report back?

Stop teasing!  :D  We want more information!  Who made that creature?  How old is it?  Is that the original engine?

Mows great and runs great 3.5 horse Briggs. Everything looks original. Chain driven, no belts. Manufactured by Tru-Cut, out of Los Angeles.

Nice find. You'll just have to give it a go this summer and see how you like it.

Be sure you pick up all the sticks! It won't chop them.

Nice new mower. There's a reason golf courses use reels, they work great.
