As many of you that helped me out already know, I just got my first reel mower today. It's a McLane 20in with a 5.25 Briggs motor (wish it had a Honda). I'm not sure how old it is but if it is old the never used it, the thing is super clean!!!! But no one cares about the print, here's the pics!!!

Yeah, agreed that thing looks great. Congrats!

I would prefer the Honda too but I think the Briggs is going to be good also. Only two suggestions that I would recommend(I would recommend for all mower engines really). 1. Run the fuel out over winter and don't let it sit in the carb. 2. Run ethanol free fuel for your standard gas.

Congrats again!

Congrats man!

Now it's time to make a roller, or buy one!

:mrgreen:
Ordered a roller already!!! Normally I'd be all about making one to save cash but I've been so busy I know I wouldn't take the time to do it (projects stacking up) So I ordered one this morning from reel rollers!! 🤘🏻

...It'll be perfect with a roller and a TLF sticker on it.
