    BG I know one thing for sure, I sure would hate to have to push one of those things.:crazy:

    I am going to buy this one and set it in the yard.

    Well now Dayton I finally got one on yea. :tounge_out: Keep in mind That thing has no motor. It is powered by armstrong and I don't think I would last long with it.

    My father in law had a garden plow like that, well, I mean it had handles and you push... I think it's still laying around the place. :tounge_out:

    I can't believe that thing is a push mower. the sickle requires more energy to operate than a reel, i do believe. the forward wheel, via belt, operates the sickle. the rear wheel looks like it is made to power the 2 big wheels. either we can't see the motor, or it is missing. i have looked as much as i can and i can't find further info on this.

    below is a pic of a push sickle mower and you can clearly see the difference in size and mass.

    someone look into this and tell us if i am correct please.

    Guys I am going to pick it up today and will let you know if it had a motor or not. I am like Phil I don't see how that can be man handled.

    Dayton I still have one of those old Gee- wizzes here also.

    Phil It was most defently a manuel operated unit. I was looking at it and figureing the easiest way to load it when his wife came out the door raising cain with him about selling stuff with out telling her so I quietly jumped in my truck and made like a cow pattie and hit the trail. :lol:
    Haven't heard or seen a hide or a hair from him since.:eek:oooh:
