She's 8/5 months pregnant and thrilled that I will have 'more projects' to keep me around home this summer.


If that's her thrilled look, I'd hate to see her upset....

It was one of those deals where I kinda had to buy the lot, to get the machines here on my long-time wish list...the Homlite and the Porter Cable.  Due to obvious space constraints, and to eliminate some redundancy in the collection, I will be finding foster homes for the WH and Simp3012.  I will probably need to find a home for my Homelite T-16S as well.  All three are superb machines, but I have to exhibit a slight amount of self control, plus I'm in the hole bringing these all home (diesel isn't cheap out East apparently :rolling: )

 

I haven't really had a chance to dig into things yet, but it looks like the PC/MW is a '51, based on the date of the Briggs.  I had no idea it was that old...figured 1960-ish.  This is my oldest Briggs.

Nice Scores There!!  Those shots of the Simplicity mower makes it obvious as to why they have the best cut in the game and lay down those beautiful stripes..

Gotta Get me one!!

They do make fantastic stripes...these are courtesy of the 60" on my AGCO 2025.  This was my first attempt to mow with a 60"...it's 36 years newer than the 3012 you see in the previous pictures, and acts JUST like the old iron.  Simplicity really did a nice job keeping that deck design and premium cut in place, all the way to current day on many models.  They are a joy to cut with...makes me feel guilty sometimes b/c it looks SO good!
