Probably one of the strangest things that you've seen a Tacoma pull

I recently picked up this antique walk-behind lawnmower and towed it home behind my Tacoma on my trailer and thought I'd share a few photos as it's probably one of the strangest things you've seen a Tacoma tow. Sure got the looks from some people as well!

It's a 1947 Jacobsen Lawn King two stroke reel mower. Bought it from the original owner in fact. Long story short, I had been looking specifically for one of these for quite sometime to go along with my other antique Jacobsen reel mower that I restored a while back.













My other Jacobsen that I restored a while back.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Can't wait to see the newly acquired mower cleaned up.
Seems like you did a fantastic job on the first one.
Have fun with the restoration.

Haha, yes and no. There are forums for collectors out there that are dedicated to antique lawnmowers believe it or not. I am just into anything with a motor and wheels so something like absolutely intrigues me.

In short, the mower weighs an absolute ton to say the leaste, the thing is like lead, so the trailer makes it MUCH easier to haul around on and still requires a couple of us to maneuver it onto. It is also self-propelled, not push.

I've decided to keep it in it's (mostly) orginal state as I'd like to enjoy it that way for a while before I do a 'ground up' restoration on it, so it will be a while before that happens.

Nice, those are cool vintage machines! Post up some pictures if you can. It's just fun to use one of these old machines every now and then, they are completely different than using a modern mower of today.
