After two years of VERY limited use due to an overheated engine causing lack of power and oil usage, plus another 6 months of downtime (in pieces) while I waited for parts and got machine work done, the old girl is finally back to work! Fully rebuilt engine, rewired and cleaned up, a little carb tuning and she was back to mowing. Hopefully I get another 40 years out of it...

I love the tow behind mower. Sweet tractor also, good luck in the next 40 year run. I believe it will probably last well into your grandchildren's lives. :)

I mow around 5 acres and had to find a way to speed up the process, picked up a 44" Swisher tow behind for cheap because it needed work and got it going.  I wasn't thrilled with how it cut so I modified it a bit to add the front wheels and a better hitch, now it mows great and I couldn't imagine life without it!  Thanks for the reply!
