Wow thats cool as heck. I did not even know porter cable made lawn mowers. I love the older porter cable tools the ones that were made in the usa. But wow never thought they made a mower. Thats cool looking , whats that a reel mower?

Welcome to GTT. Our Manuals Section may have something about it. In the past several years, I've seen a couple Porter Cable tractors for sale in the Groton, CT area. There may have been a dealer in the area. Good Luck, Rick

It is a reel mower, they made a mark 26 with the normal blade, there's a video on YouTube about that one but not this one

Nice
I saw some of them, great looking!
I'm disappointed in porter cable. I contacted them. The reply I got was one sentence. "Sorry that tractor is obsolete and we have no information on it". What?? You built it lol not even a year? :(

There are several shows in our area this summer. One guy comes with a bus full of old manuals that are for sale. The next one will be at Zagray Farm in Colechester, CT July 16 and 17. Good Luck, Rick
