FB Mug's place more like. I didn't know they had rust and missing/ faded paint out of the box.

Could have given it a squirt of paint from a can at least.

Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!

I guess if it runs ok and the blades were good, $50 would be ok

Your generous Norm ,I would only pay $10. to $20. if it ran well ,I'd have to be desperate for a motor to pay $20.,
I scrapped a lot of those MTD mowers that looked a lot newer all with good engines ,I sell newish looking Victa mowers
with that engine serviced for $80. and lucky if it only takes about a week to sell .



Cheers
Max.

I wouldn't be paying $50 Max, but for somebody who just wanted a mower to cut the grass then $50 is probably ok

G'day Norm

Possibly if your desperate for a mower Norm but as we know there a lot better mowers cheaper.

I won't sell those MTD mowers as I don't think they are worth anything , but worth something if you want an engine for
another mower ,I think you do the same.

Hi Max,
I have always scrapped any of those MTD mowers, kept the wheels as they are reasonably solid, but the bodies are awful and I usually find the motors have had a hard time and are at their end of life

Hi Norm,

I’ve had the opposite with a lot of the MTD mowers the mowers look new and are thrown out , bar blade and oil still looks new.

Cheers
Max.

Hi Max,
They are just a big bulky mower that I have no idea why a manufacturer would use so much extra steel to build something that doesn't have a wider cut than all the other lighter mowers, they are just plain stupid
