I really enjoy the simplistic but beautiful engineering on the classics.
Thought I'd share some pics

Classics for sure. I always liked how Snapper casted their name on these decks.

My father still mows the grass with that same lawn boy in fact I am pretty sure in my lifetime he has only ever owned that one mower. He also still drives a manual trans single cab s10, he just can't seem to find quality anymore so he says. I bet he will rebuild those items for the rest of his life.

I picked a few of those snapper high vac up for free along the road, i wasn't really impressed with them. I part them out on ebay and they sell quick.
I like those old hahn mowers the one I had was awesome to use

Cant beat that old school equipment , Id rather spend any amount it takes to keep these old machines going than settle for something new made of plastic and a paper thin deck!

 

Dont mean to hijack the thread but someone threw this Toro out in the trash last fall so I saved it!

Only thing that was wrong was points needed replacing!

Yup to each there own, Hahn mowers are legit. The mower depicted here is a V18 long shute convertible I believe circa 1977, that is an NOS engine on it that's never had gas or oil in it. The V18 was intended to sell directly from the factory to municipalities, the government etc. you don't see many, it is a 100% nut and bolt resto and has been featured in Lawn and Garden Collector Magazine and I believe one of the finest V18's out there. I'm proud to own it, it's a display only model.
I do cut with a later model self propelled Snapper and I have no complaints, it always starts and I've had zero problems with it in 25+ years, same goes for that Lawnboy it's a worker.

  That's why I bought a new engine for my old Wizard aluminum tunnel deck mulcher.

That is for sure. Made for profit now and not reputation. A shame what we have become in some ways
