Still using my 50 year old briggs mower.

Hi, I still regularly use the Briggs mower I used as a kid to cut my and neighbors grass. Its never been rebuilt. It burns a little oil. I have had to weld a few spots on the body and replace wheels from other mowers. I hope to pass it along to my son and continue the trend.

I doubt any new Briggs engine could last that long!

Welcome to the forum, Gary!


Would love to see and hear about your mower that you've preserved so well.
