Was coming home from the gas station today and seen this push mower along the side of the road, noticed almost instantly it was an aluminum deck and immediately turned around and stuffed it in the back of the car :D

 

Stuff like this is getting harder to find anymore with them not making many good quality machines since the late 80's and the scrappers scooping these older ones up.

 

Its a Wheel Horse REO

I plan on getting it up and running and using it to cut grass, anyone know what year this thing is and possibly have a parts list for it?

Great find? I don't think I ever saw one of those before. Sure can't beat the price.

If the engine is original the first 2 digits of the code will be the year. It looks new enough to get the year that way.

Hope your going to keep it in a different shed than the Bolens, or you might be having some fighting going on!

I'm wondering if it is as the engine mount bolts have been replaced with ones a couple inches too long!

I googled the model number but got nothing :(

Looks like the same vintage as the mowers I used when I was mowing lawns in my tens. I'd guess early 70s. It's in great shape!

I have 3 push mowers in my collection, a sensation and a Jacobsen (both early 80's) and a ford (70's) plus one for rough mowing and an older Toro super recycler.

Looks like the LC-2127 was sold 1967 and 1968 but 359841 is a 1967 serial number.
