Neat old mower pictures...
The first 'monster' mower I remember was a model almost Identical to the snappen turtle ...
It was a late 1950's snapper.... :smile:KennyV

Great link, Mace Canute -- the Snapin Turtle mower caught my eye and I was pleased to find out that the mower (not the engine) was made in McDonough, GA, which is now metro-Atlanta but back in 1951 (when the mower was made) that had to be really out in the sticks.

I like your taste in mowers. I've got a 1977 Lawn Boy - two-stroke, of course.

Reminds me of an old John Deere my grandpa owned. He was so attached to it that when it broke he would literally get sad. Thanks for the site.

It doesn't seem that long ago that all those old mowers were the norm. They sure don't make them like they used to, do they.

I remember my Dad's lawn mower in the early 60's. Gas powered and the deck had teeth cut in it. Never knew what the teeth were for. I didn't see any mowers on the site that were gas engines with teeth on the front of the deck.

The early snappers had teeth ... they combed the rocks and stuff up before you hit it ...and the items that it missed were held inside the deck ares and not allowed to be thrown out easily...
The stuff that usually got raked up or ATE up was kids toys ... usually.

Thanks for sharing that site with us. It's so interesting to see how much things have changed. It really blows my mind. Old lawnmowers, old cars, old houses. I wonder what things will look like 50 years from now...
