REO still running

1947 REO lawn mower power unit

Here is a photo of a 1947 REO lawn mower power unit. The reel wore out long ago. This unit has a Clinton engine, and is still running good with a riding attachment made by REO. I liked the article on Gary Pieper's collection in the May 2006 issue of Farm Collector and thought that Gary may be interested in this unit. My grandson is riding it; he was 8 years old in the photo and now is 23.
