    not really old....not even woodworkin`

    but this seemed like the right place for a kinda old, purchased from the original owner, still original tires, 1972 wheelhorse lawnmower...came with an old single bottom plow the original owner had converted from his paws horse-drawn plow...cast iron-n-horsepower ...

    Kewl!

    Those WheelHorses are great tractors, and yours looks like it's in nice shape. Restore in the schedule?

    Here are mine...

    1973 JD 140 H3 (Triple Hydraulics), 1990 JD 170 with blade, 2000 Craftsman LT1500, and my new 2006 Craftsman YS4500...

    Those were great ol mowing machines.
    I knew a guy that did custom mowing, took care of several old cemetaries.
    A belt once in a while was all He ever did maintance wise.

    Yep, Case 1150 windrower. 14 foot cutting blade and is self-propelled. Uses sticks for steering so I can turn it on a dime.

    Here's another view of it. In the background is my old swather that only had a 9 foot cutting blade. It is basically falling apart and I'm trying to sell it off for parts.

    Did a test run of the Case and cut some weeds down. Here you can see the swath it left.

    Since we are showing pics of mowing machines, here is my wife on our JD lawn mower, just don't any body tell her she is on the net....I'll be in trouble.

    Stu, I hope you don't find the image of another forum on that picture to be offensive and need to photoshop it.
