After what seemed like an endless spell of constant rain, I was finally able to get the grass cut and the mowing equipment on for the 2014 mowing season !

 

I'm going with all reels again this year for the lawn, I may never use a rotary deck again! :D

Put some Stripes in the lawn for the first time this year :bounce:

That is a nice original heavy duty versa you have as well as weed cutter attachment. I love the look of that heavy duty model

Yeah, I hope I can get a nice 58' Ride-a-Matic to go with it.

This HD Versa-Matic is one of my favorites. This one came out of NJ and I have the original sales receipt when this machine was bought new in 1960. I also have all the original attachments that were bought with it including Plow,Mower deck,Sulky, Hitch & Cultivator.

 

Kind of a funny story on this as GTT member Bruce Dorsi picked this up for me and we later found out Bruce's Father originally sold this tractor at his mower shop! So I guess you can say the tractor came full circle as it temporarily came back to the place it was sold 50 years later!
