Managed to find a little time to snap some photos of some of my spring clean up equipments for the yard in Ashfield.

 

 

First mow was last sunday evening, finally :thumbs:

The bronze Squires appear in 3 years worth of Wards Catalogs...'64, '65 & '66. Gilson got the GT contract with Wards after Wards went belly up in '67/'68 and was restructured. Rumor has it they left vendors with bad debt too...probably burning Simplicity a bit. Simplicity did build them the Twin Twenty nearly a decade later (rebadge powermax), but other than that, a strong 30 year partnership was dead.

The Squire 9 was a one-year model in '64...it changed to the Squire 10 in '65 with the into of the 234431 Briggs that year. A Squire 9 will have a white seat and model 23D. The Squire 10 will have a black seat and aforementioned 10 horse.

Rides like one too, heavy, have to be careful around the soft spots like the apple tree, no different from the Johny Poppers, as soon as the wheel starts to spins, yank the pto clutch off and whack the throttle lever to half speed until off the soft ground.

 

Grass growing like crazy now with all the rains, top of the hill by the barn yard is getting thick from the ''homegrown'' fertilizer, yum, yum !

 

Your garden looks great, glad the tiller worked out good, when i get some time (someday) i'll stop in.
