This is a Jacobsen mower I had for about 15-18 years. I had it when i was kid and used it to drive around the neighborhood. I never mowed with it. It sat for about 6 years or so. The steering was locked up on it. Spindles were rusted shut. It has a 12hp briggs on it. and it originally has a 42"?? cut deck on it. Which I still had. The previous owner painted it "John Doe". The original manual I had for it was dated 1982.
