I had a 1960 lawnboy i picked up on the street on trash day
I had just moved into my first house and that was 1984 so it was already 24 years old . the recoil start was jammed and took about 15 minutes to fix and it was missing a tire. I threw a 30th birthday party for it in 1990 and still had it when i moved into my present house in 2003. Buy then the aluminum deck was fatiguing and I would have to get it welded from time to time plus i now had a 2 acre yard and the 18 inch lawnboy was not suited for that much grass. decided to hire someone instead. best decision i ever made. I hate cutting grass but love watching someone else do it for me.
