Is that a Monta mower handle leaning up against the white post in the first pic?

yes that's exactly what it is, the iron handled model. I have used it a few times over the yrs just for kicks. Take a good strong man to push it very long, but it mows real nice and close.

Sorry guys.  Its the busy season where I work and I haven't had time to do my part posting.

I got off at 3pm today so that allowed some time for pictures.  It was just a "short" 12 hour shift since I clocked in at 3AM!!  Today I burned up 550 miles and 75 gallon of diesel fuel. 

 

This one is so old it had wooden bearings for the main axle.  The wood is long gone.  The square drive off one end of the axle was for a home-brewed ice cream freezer mount.  I cut that off but the square drive is still there. 

The entire thing might be home-brewed.....?????

Tonites post isn't a tractor, but it is walk-behind related. Thanks a good friend out in SC, I had this 1930's Handiman plow shipped here via a Fastenal truck. I did some cleaning on it, reassembled it,  got the rollers and the disc blade greased & turning again. Not sure which big Handi i'll put it on yet, but it going to be fun to work with in the garden, with another piece of 80 yrs old equipment.

What will they think of next?   Whoda thunk you could be eating fresh homemade ice cream and cultivate the garden at the same time?

Neat looking old machine.  :thumbs:   Good luck with it.  Thanks for the pics.  Rick

It looks like we need to get this going again, so...

Here's the 1929 Bolens DQ I picked up last weekend. It was suppose to run when I brought it, so I had to try it out. For being 86 years old I'd say it runs good! I have a new found respect for all those old farmers that ran these things back in the day. Messed around for around 20 mins and was getting tired.
Also had someone else that wanted to join in. Dad still had a hand on it but she wanted to do it herself.
