Bought ours new in 1986 at Big Lots - fantastic beast of an electric mower with that Briggs motor. Father-in-law borrowed it after he'd bunged his Craftsman gas mower again, and he ended up hitting a steel water line cap with it, bending the shaft. Briggs was nice enough to send a new motor, and it kept up for years after that - until a certain someone borrowed it and bent the shaft again. In pieces in the garage since then. But, what a great electric mower for its time.
