Do you get a cleaner cut when you mow upside down?

 

 

 

Nice tractor

No wonder the WH battery died.  It leaked out all the acid!  I predict the Bolens battery will soon follow.

This tractor came from a liquidation sale of a now defunct circus. At least that's the story I've been told.

Always mow upside down, no clippings to clean up! The deck won't have grass around the belts and spindles either.

 

A clean machine!  :dancingbanana:
