qwerty I didn't have a picture of my old lawn mowers. I used a picture from the internet just to write my story. Back in the day pictures were expensive and we only took pictures of friends, family and scenery.TP, that mower doesn't date back to when you were a kid--it has a primer, not a choke. Fact is, that particular mower looks to be a 1990s or newer MTD, probably built in Indianola MS. Slightly underpowered, but the bolt-on wheels and lack of features kept the model light and easy to push, and a simple stretch of the governor spring would get a few hundred more RPM out of it, and then the engine would be on the cam and make a lot more power when hitting tough spots. I mowed 1.25 acres of tough West Texas bunch grass with one just like it for years. Great piece of equipment, and just the ticket for eradicating copperheads in the yard.
