I was watching an old episode of "I Love Lucy", and Lucy is mowing the grass with an old reel mower.

Does anybody know what this mower is?

The name of the episode is named "Lucy Raises Tulips".

Well it's a reel mower with a crank start on it. From the mid 50's.

It appears to be a Toro "Professional" 76" cut reel mower that has had the two wing cutters removed.

Earliest versions had a Toro engine and were painted green. ....Later versions were painted red and had Wisconsin engines.

The belt-driven wing reel units were hinged to the main frame, and could be raised up for transport.

I believe they were manufactured in the 1940's & 1950's, and possibly into the early 1960's.
