Cutting grass with the 1949 Craftsmen reel mower



hey guys Tristan here we're going to be doing a lot more video with this very old 1949 Craftsman lawn mower it's a real mower because it has a real I guess it's how it works as it pulls the blade against the razor-sharp blade we're not ready to start blade but you get the tension the sharp blade well it's not sharp enough we can cut your fingers on it if it's too sharp it'll dull really quick but anyways I don't think I ever did video of this actually cutting the longer grass you need to make you may see you like there's where I cut with it just a little bit ago and I had an idea to cut some grass with it on video like I said the model number of this one is one two three eight one seven two this is the 18 inch model which is from November of 1949 and model number one two three eight one seven one is a 16 inch model also from November of 1949 that's pretty good I had to fix the roller bar on the back but it's working pretty good so let's see how she cuts the grass sticks right here because ditch does not match the real mowers putting through the camera a little bit and now you can see the line where I've been doing in that battle go not bad for a seven-year-old longboard say 1949 Wow it's up there so the Jeanette 70s I love how this lawn more custom grass because I brand-new still well almost like now the blades could use a little sharpening the reason why I pulled out the real more today's because one we need to go get gas for my gas more and two I just wanted to use it make a video on it these birds are getting real close almost too close anyways so I decided to put a real more because when it cuts pretty good and I decided just to do it because when I don't have gas I need to go buy gas for my rotary and and I decided it needs to be needs to be mowed sound well other de to use would be the real mower it's reliable it doesn't use gas he's going to oil it up every once in a while I like at hand you got sharpened blades better than that runs like a champ still runs good after 70 something years let's finish up let's finish this yard about reel mower there's one thing I know don't let your grass too too tall because that would just be murder one it's very hard to push when you got the grass like taller like this taller so well this tall it'll be a little bit difficult with Vinnie taller than that forget it I advise you use a rotary motor anyways thanks for watching

    I love the riding lawn mower.>>>t.co/ycXz48eNOn  It operates and mows well. It is the appropriate size for my small lot. Starts easily and started right out of the crate. I have had no mechanical problems with the mower. I am  very happy with the mower and very pleasant and to my complete satisfaction.
