Went for a little drive to get a reel mower for the RAM. Its in great shape other than the wheels have been swapped out for some plastic ones. Should be able to get that taken care of with a couple parts reels I've got. Its also missing the tag which bums me out a bit. Nice thing is that the wood rollers are in decent shape.

Nice Find!

I assume you already have the front hitch?

No that I'll be getting in a month or so. Need to get the tractor tuned up first anyways.

It the wrong color just like the tractor. It'll do for now though. Trying to get a shop at home set up for painting. Once its done I'll be getting green paint by the drum to get caught up with my painting.

For the RAM??? What is that?   What is attraction of the reel mowers?  I've heard only good if you keep lawns real short, and also not good on rough and rolling lawns. Plus, seems much more work to set one up and keep sharp!  To me seems like out-dated technowledgy (sic).  Guess you have to be a Bolen's collector and like the old stuff then, huh!

Nice reel setup. Once they are tuned, you will really enjoy using them.

GL, I prefer the reels cut wise. Also, love the ease of cleanup.
