Nice collection! I really like the photo of your line up.

Those are some really nice machines! Do you use the ones that are restored or enjoy keeping them spotless?

Thanks for sharing your collection with us!

They are ... I also belong to my tractor forum , this is only the 3rd one they ever saw . 1964 is a long survival rate for a lawnmower , especially a commercial one !

Survival for anything made in 1964 is amazing. I'm surprised I made it past the 60s myself.:D

I'm sure you've seen baldguy's restoration over on mtf. Yours looks to be in better shape than his was when he started his restoration. You have a very nice find there for sure.

Keep us up on how the collection and restorations go. Hope you post threads on your work. Love the sound and smell of a 2 stroke.

Besides the green JDs that I have around here, everything else is red...might be nice to add a little contrast to the collection..Thats me trying to justify :bag:

I enjoy seeing the collections of Lawn Boys other folks have. The old commercials especially with their bigger tanks and engine guards are pretty darned impressive looking.

Keep the posts coming Commercial King!

I had these three Lawn Boys before I caught myself, and entered my own 12 step plan that involved Jacobsens.:D But, if I were to run across a decent M...:dunno:

I like that first picture. The photo looks so professional, like it would've been the cover picture for its original brochure. Especially with the attachments along side it and everything.

I remember the one in the middle photo. You had it literally looking like it belonged on the showroom floor, I couldn't believe you sold it! :)

I honestly don't really know diddly-squat about LB's, but I do know that I like the look of the bricktops...

A member from my tractor forum saw it on his area craigslist and asked me if I wanted it . That was an easy decision . I paid $75 for it and he sent it to me at cost . These forums are great places .

There's no disputing the "King" title. You really have a nice collection there. Do you have an actual total or at least an estimate on your collection? :)
