Posted my Wanted ad yesterday and got an insane response..

I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves here guys.. Remember.. This is One Guy's collection.. And he says this is about "A Tenth" Of the whole thing..

















If this guy is for real I could seriously make a killing..

This is also a time when I do wish I was on MTF.. I know that Last mower is insanely rare.. Like Insanely.. but I cant pinpoint what the heck it is..

Yard Nazi, Wolfy, Comm King.. I Need your help!

Sounds like a ripe opportunity to acquire some rare machines! Keep us updated on the outcome.

Careful where you post it! :bag:

Eric. It's a very long story.. But Along time ago when I was much younger.. I got cocky with an Admin and got myself Banned.. Yes I know It doesn't seem like me.. But we all get older and wiser eh?

That last one looks like an 8453 that has possibly had the shroud replaced with one from a newer commercial model - note the holes in the side of the shroud where the plastic "Lawn-Boy" logo might have once been if the shroud was forward facing.

Nice bunch of mowers!! The model of the one you are trying to identify escapes me at the moment but it appears to have the Lawnboy PRO Supreme starter which is the same starter I added to my 8243AE. I tried to find my instruction sheet as it had the model number but I musy have thrown it away. Seems like it could have been an 8471 or 8461 or something like that. I did find some on the MTF commercial picture thread that looked similar. Bill

I also added a Pull starter to my 8243AE As the Electric only start seemed a mite stupid..

I remember hearing that those models were only made for a year or so and were rather desirable.. I won't be able to do anything until Tuesday at the earliest as I am busy with Easter related things.

I hope to get a good haul from this one.. At least 10+ Machines if all goes to plan.. Plus some Parts units to finish off some projects.

The thing is, I have no idea just what he has.. He claims the pictures are "About a third of what I got" In his own words so I don't even know what to expect..
