Went to some garage sales today.

Found a garage sale with some yard/ garden  equipment.  The first to catch my eye was a Cub Cadet 125.  He wanted way more than I was willing to pay.  Then I spotted an old Choremaster. It had the original weight and a cultivator. Again way more than I wanted to pay.

This old push mower kept jumping out in my way so I finally gave it a "look see".  I liked the styling of the deck, and it had compression, and ....... the price was right!  So now I'm the owner of a Goodall 20 lawn mower. Built by Goodall MFG.  , Warrensburg, MO.

The deck forms a fender over the front wheels.

The front wheels don't touch the ground until you start pushing it.  It rests on a bracket on the rear of the deck until you start pushing.

The deck color is close to the old dark green Lawn Boys.  And had yellow wheels. 

I didn't really need another 50's lawn mower,  but I got it anyway!!     Rick

That's a weird looking push mower, never seen anything like that before. 

 

What the ball and chain for?

The chain on the rock is a "snake".  Just something to get the mail mans attention.

He's not real fond of our gator either.    Both have caused him moments of adverse reaction when they caught his attention. :D ​       Rick

Wow ! walking up your walk at dusk that gator would cause my mind to react long before it remembered gators aren't normally in the Midwest. :rolling:
