Well here is my girlfriends Portland buy. Well one of them anyway. Biggest one I've ever saw. Runs and mows darn good. Sorry for the bad picture quality. Came with the matching sulky. Missing the seat but other than that its in good shape. All 5 tires are original. Its a eclipse speedway.

That's an unusual piece.  I still believe the reel mowers make a much cleaner lawn than a rotary, but that's just my very humble opinion.

Its a 32 inch cut. It was advertised to mow from 5 1/2 to 7 mph. The sulky was recommended.

Never seen that big of a reel before! Nice Pickup!

Member Bruce Dorsi used to sell Eclipse mowers and may have a manual for you if you need it.

I tend to agree. This was my first year using the reels I got with my Bolens riders and Walkbehinds and after the results I got this year all my Rotary decks will be kept in the shed next mowing season and I'm going to use all Reels :thumbs:

Nice find!

 

If you can furnish the numbers from the B&S engine, and the numbers from the Eclipse nameplate, I may be able to furnish some info, if you desire.
