Well im really bored. (and I cant be the only one) Here is what I had in mind. As the title says lets have a walk behind of the day. Everyone can pick one out. If you have one tell us the story behind it and if you got pictures post them. Or if there is one your looking for then post a example picture of it and tell us what it is. Maybe we can get some good participation on this.
Here is mine for today.
Its my 1949 Might man. Its all original. Well maybe not the optional muffler if that's what you wana call it. (I personally like it, it adds character) I first decided i needed one when i saw jeffs on here. Its gota be one of the coolest looking machines. So the search began. I looked at all the swap meets and shows. No luck. Until Portland fall swap meet. My wife and i were walking threw the rows looking for good junk. And out of the corner of my eye i saw something. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. It was a MIGHTY MAN. I almost broke out in a run to get over there. It was on a trailer, the older fellow who had it was very nice and didn't know a whole lot about it other than its the only one he had seen. It came with the original sickle mower. Even had the original round belt to run the sickle mower. So i asked the price. And my heart kinda sunk. So i kept walking around. (I actually went down to Portland for a whole bunch of stuff i bought off of another member Gunstuff1000) (he is a great friend, and my bolens suppler haha) So i saw him walking around and just had to show him the mighty man because i was just excited to see one. So later on he said he saw that guy and said i needed to go see him at some point soon. So i walked up there and he said that as long as i wasn't just buying it to sell it he would knock off $200, because if the younger people like me weren't into this stuff than eventually it will all become scrap iron. So i owe gunstuff1000 a lot for helping me get my mighty man. So i bought it, got it running the same day at the swap meet. It needs 4 transmission bearings, but i don't care. I finally found one. So a big thanks to gunstuff1000.
Sorry for this being so long. So lets see yours and here its story.
