Do you remember your first one?

Lawn mower, that is. All this talk about lawn mowers made me think back to the ones I've owned over the years since moving into my house back in '76.

I know back then, a lawn mower was a lawn mower to me. Features smeatures, it's just supposed to cut the grass for crying out loud. I had a new house with grass that needed to be cut, and I couldn't keep borrowing the father-in-law's. Now I collect mowers and refurbish them!

My first mower was red. Bought it at a discount department store. Don't remember the brand or much more about it other than it was a rear bagger with an aluminum deck. It did what I wanted it to do until one day it wouldn't start. I wasn't much into fixing things back then, so I gave it to my brother-in-law who needed a mower and I went out and bought a Snapper.

How about you guys? What was your first mower?
