Today was a pretty good day for mower acquistions.

Scored a '57 7100 Lawnboy! The fifties 21" are rare. Do these have magnesium decks? Only thing is I have to wait until December for it to get here! The owner bought it new in '57 and will bring it to me in December when he comes to visit his family here in town. i guess it's better than having to pay shipping!

Second score was a 2010 SnapperPro 21 with the Honda motor for a very good price. Has all the options. Looks like new!

Possible JX85 tomorrow. Have to see it. Owners says bearings are bad in the BBM.

Photos coming!

Deck should be aluminum.
No magnesium decks were made in Lamar.
Nice find !
I found a 7000, complete, earlier this summer.

I like the Snapper. A co-worker of mine has one with the Honda GCV engine and the 6-speed disc drive. Is that pretty much what yours is? I love it.

Bought a Honda HRB215HXA today for very low money. PO couldn't start it. Boy, was it dirty. Opend the bowl drain and the usual bad gas. Flushed fuel circuit with new gas, put the drain bolt back on, gave it a good detail and she fired right up!

Hydro works great, BBM work fine, could use some new rear wheels, but who's complaining.
