I picked this up yesterday. Is this one of the reel mowers that has been discussed about pulling with a Cub. Any help with finding a brand name. I think TM had it with their brochures but they sold them all before selling the business and there is no info available.

Barnyard, That's a pretty cool find. I have some experience with all types of gang mowers. It looks to me to be a product built for and sold by sears in the 1960's. couldn't find my old notes about the manufacturer but it looks like a Supreme model AP1801. Good luck finding parts Greg

Looks a bit different than the Sunflower gang that I had (for a day, gave it to my friend).

Hard to find anyone that can sharpen them.... but a big turf farm may have a sharpener, a pricey tool.

these are very easy to sharpen. Most people think that you sharpen the reel you don't. you sharpen the shear or the straight piece across the bottom. Even then it's not really sharp but square to the reel. If adjusted properly you should never have to touch it again. However things like nails, rocks, wire will cause problems easily fixed with a file. When you see someone using the jig on the reel they are really squaring the edge. you will have to adjust the shear after that procedure. Greg
