While Skin N’ Fluff Farm primarily focuses on our animals, we also have other interests. One of those interests is restoring old tools and equipment for use here on our farm. Well we have been in need of a second small push mower to use on other areas of the farm. I looked at the cheap-o mowers at our local Wal-mart and seen they start out at $144.97. Looking at the quality of it I decided it was just too much money to spend on a mower that the deck would not last on. Now seeing I can buy a brand new engine for $99.99 all I need to do is spend less than $45 on a deck. Searching on the local craigslist I located just what we needed. A 1970’s cast aluminum mower with a bad engine. For $20 it was well worth fixing up. After completely stripping it down and cleaning it, I painted everything up. Now I have finished restoring the deck all that is left is to go buy the engine for it. Well here is how it turned out.
The bad engine that was on it was a Briggs dated 1972. The deck is called a Laddie 21 and cast aluminum. The original tires that are on it are Firestone and mounted on aluminum wheels.
