I've been mowing with a Sears GT 5000 for over 8 years, but I decided to upgrade and use the 76' SS/18 I picked up this winter. It's time to get the winter garb off the thing and service the deck.

At home mine is a 1969 Wheel Horse Electro 12 and/or my brother's Allis Chalmers B110. At work it all depends on what needs mowed. We have triplexes, a 5 reel fairway mower, a five deck self contained finish mower, an old International with a 5ft brush hog, a little JD X320 for a trim mower, a front mower rear steer unit and a roughly 12ft 3 deck batwing finish mower.

i use 1970 JD 140 with a Sears for back up at home.  At my sons place we have about three acres between us so we use gt 16 Jacobsen and a yt16h Ford with a Yard King for back up.  Hoping to get a six foot finish mower for the tea20 Ferguson tractor this spring.

    When I bought the house I had an allis chalmers b-10, been using it ever since and plan on using it as long as I can.  Sorry no pics of it with the mower but here are a few of me pushing crusher run around in front of the barn.

For the house yard JD F525, 48" cut:

Off-set deck lets it go under trees & shrubbery & it will turn a square corner around a building.  If it decides to give up on me, i'll be looking for another one!

 

At the farm a JD 790 with 5' Woods 3-pt finish mower:
