Great idea, kbietz! Here is a '50s Fairbanks-Morse mower that I dug up.

I like that, Dave, those side pieces remind me of pontoons. That would be a cool machine to have restored up on a shelf. Great find.

Here are a couple of mine.


1959 Eclipse Speedway, weighs 485 pounds dry without the sulky. Has a self-sharpening attachment feature that spins the reel in reverse that's kind of cool.





1947 Jacobsen Lawn King 2 stroke - the most fun mower I've ever operated. It becomes your "friend" while you mow.

1985 Bolens HDT 1000 #11


1977 Economy Powerking Tractor

A Mustang was up for sale on FB today and quickly sold. $275 asking price.

I found this trike reel mower when searching for a pic of the Mustang as it was removed already.

Re: Post a picture... Tell a story of the oddest looking tractor.

Is that National pulling a self powered flail mower?

Nouveau Redneck
Sean in PA
1973 Ford 4000 3-cyl gas w/S-O-S & 60 inch Woods rotary mower
2008 John Deere X500
2015 John Deere X530
2014 Kubota BX25D w/50" snow blower

You know you might be a Nouveau Redneck if...
1. You use the cup holder on your tractor to hold your cosmopolitan instead of a beer
2. Your "Santa on a tractor" Christmas yard decoration is actually a high tech digital hologram.
3. Your deer camp cuisine is better than most 3 star restaurants.
