My brother(Farmerall) has had his National mower for a few years now, and it doesn't get to come out of its corner of the shed too often. I recently bought my National and two parts frames. My good mower has been our primary mower for the time being. My brother was home this past weekend and wanted to dig his out of the shed and get a picture of it with my "new" mower. I didn't feel like helping move all of the stuff to get it out. Yesterday, I had nothing better to do and decided to dig his out and get a few pictures of it with mine.

I'm partial to the Wisconsin powered one, but then again I'm biased...

Ray, those look good together and I bet you can really cover some acreage with both of them mowing.

Nice, thank for pictures. Great to see them out grazing. Have not had my tractors out much this year for grazing, maybe on the next long weekend, depending on weather. Noel

Was interested in a national one time, but never did buy it.

I like Wisconsin's too, I have a parts frame with almost the same engine on it (it may join the ranks eventually if I can find the parts to fix it).

 

Ray, those look good together and I bet you can really cover some acreage with both of them mowing.

Just one of them will cover a lot of ground it a short amount of time.

Mine is the only one that has cut grass lately, I just brought my brothers out to get some sun and drive it around. You would have enjoyed it if you had bought the one you were looking at, they are a lot of fun just to drive.

What's the wingspan on those? Are they like Ryan's at 7'? Bet the pair of them would finish a lawn quick.

Very funny, Jim.  :D

 

I'd say something here about not being a Yankee, but that might offend all the good friends I have on here from up north.

Cat absolutely does not count.  I only associate with people of fine upstanding character, not just because they happen to be "a character."  Besides, who wants to be friends with something that licks itself in all sorts of obscene places before it goes to bed? :rolling: :rolling:

It's all about perspective.  My wife is from Oklahoma and doesn't consider Virginia to be in "the South."  I think her Mason-Dixon line is probably the North and South Carolina border.  Even after living in PA for 18 years now (wow, have I really known her that long already??) she's still amazed at some of the accents she hears down your way.  She can't seem to figure out why people who live so far north sound so southern. :smilewink:

Wow...

 

She needs to come around my area.  Some of the country folks start a sentence, and the drawllllll it out so long that you can nearly eat a whole bowl of hominy before it is done.
