Nice ! , made the long trip worth it, I'm sure it was a little easier for him to part with 'em knowing they were going to a appreciative home. Congrats, enjoy !

These were bought from seperate guys in the area but I know the one who sold the Snow blower was happy it was going to a good home

Very nice things you brought back! One of those reel mowers is on my wish list so maybe one of these days.

Here's a brochure I have on the model B mowers. Doesn't say all that much. I think these are a bit newer being its dated 5-40.
