Thanks for the pics. I've seen one of those Gibsons in action at our plow day.

The tiller steering is a hoot! I think that would take some getting used to.

Great pictures and some very cool machines. I think the repower project would be cool as well.

I can't believe how much the Bolens Grounds Keeper looks like that.

Here is another Gibson, I used to have. Could not give alot of info but, as you can see the steering was modified before I had it.

I love that Hesston!  I wanted either one of those or a Bolens EK or GK and I ended up finding both of the Bolens first so that's what I've got.  I found a review that's a couple pages long on the Hesston in an old Popular Mechanics magazine from the early 1970's.  I'll scan it for everyone.
