    Thanks it's one of a kind. Lawn Boy GT18H I converted to 4wd, added electric power steering, and built 3 point hitch with hydraulic top link. Bigger tires all around (front 16/6.50 to 18/9.50 and rear 23/10.50 to 26/12)
    Sure is a work horse for it's size and I've not yet seen another Lawn Boy that model in person. Seen a few on internet but they're not very common at all. These were a Gilson design previously sold in blue and white version as Ford.

    You got any better photo's of it? My dad and uncle are huge lawnboy geeks. They were both small engine mechanics. My dad was a lawnboy dealer back in the day.

    My pops has a couple like your middle one there. I used to mow with an old white top when I was a kid. I bet my dad and uncle have around a 100 of them between the two of them.

    I picked my dad up yeterday and he rode with me to get my new (to me) stove. I laughed about his line of lawnboys in the driveway and told him that it looked like it was about time to have a fire sale on lawnboys. He told me that he is saving them becasue "they don't make em anymore". I laughed, my dad will be 80 in October....the lawnboy that he currently mows with he has had for 20 years. Good plan better keep those extra 20 mowers around..lol

    Yes the majority is. Not my first choice. I had to cut the hackberry and some other to get to this oak. It is coming home tommorow. [​IMG]

    I burn s lot of hackberry, It's somewhat hard and nobody seeks it so it's pretty easy to come by.

    Load number 5 dropped. Mix of ash and basswood again. Not ideal but we pretty much have the clearing made for dad's new 80x40 garage so I am taking whatever comes down.
