With the cold weather I thought I would get back to sorting out my pictures which were well and truly scattered and mixed up.I was sure I had taken more pictures than what I first found and was glad to come across my first walk behind.I bought this gem at a local auction back in 1987 and used it till I got a more suitable unit. First off it was a two wheel unit much like a bike without a kick stand you had to park it against a tree or barn or it fell over.It had a gear reduction Briggs and Stratten 1.5 Hp engine on it but was still way too fast.It was also very very long and tippy at the end of the garden you placed all your weight on the wood handles to raise the tool out of the ground which because of the weight and speed made it wobble bad.The later one I took a picture of had two front wheels,looked like it was tacked on,I only ever saw the two.They were made in Hamliton Ontario,mine was after the war. A neighbor watching me gave me a fence row Simplicity which I have unlike the Universal to this day.
What was your first walk behind ? Cheers Mike
