What part of Mich are you in?

Also, just how large/heavy are those reel mowers?

I take it that you have lined up a set of reel mower for a Ridemaster ?
If so .. that is really great.
They would be worth taking a 3-day weekend and driving over to get them.

There not Ridemaster reel mowers but there just like the kind you have.
I'll see what I can work out.

About 15 mins from owosso MI.
The reel mowers are 22 inch cut but I have no idea how heavy they are.

HMMMM at 22" they couldn't be all THAT heavy then. I'll bet that they would fit in the storage compartments in the MH.

I'm assuming that they can be broken down into individual reels?

Would you be willing to drive to Toledo?

I just took my scale out and weighed the reel mower units that I have and was a little surprised.
They weigh 85 pounds each.

OK, at 22" and 85# each, I should be able to carry those reel units in the outside compartments of the MH.

I talked to the wife, and she says that she's been looking for an excuse for a road trip. :D Danged MH has been sitting for about 2 months, and needs to be driven anyway.

If you have a place where I could park a 32' MH overnight, or if there is someplace close by, we could deliver them to your door.

Shucks, it's almost all freeway, and a nice easy drive. It will be fun. Here's what I have on MS Streets & Trips.

Well I stoped at the junkyard today to pick up some chain for my kitty track.
I was walking back to the front of the yard looking at the junk and I spot a reel mower just like the kind I been looking for but the cuter was right next to it and he had already started to cut it and he had the other one of the two cut already so I was a little to late. I need 3 any ways but it still made me feel sick.
