Found this Reel Mower for the Estate Keeper today, Went to see my friend that was about 2 hours away who buys and sells alot of Used equipment.

He said make an offer and I said $60 and he replied back with "how about $50?" so I couldn't refuse :D

What a great addition to your collection Brian. Another piece of Bolens history has found its way to someone that will keep the history alive.

Now, if you can find a reel mower attachment for the Versa/Ride-A-Matics and a tube-frame reel, you will have the trilogy, trifecta, or hat trick!
