    ...do what with it?

    Any ideas on how I can display it in my yard? :confused:
    I live in the country in a cabin (not that this should matter)

    Ohhhh I just LOVE using old equiptment in a stylish decoration!!! You could plant some flowers in front of it and maybe a flat, ground flower behind it (so it looks like it was just mowed down)..... depending on finances and space, could surround it with part of a cedar fence corner.... vines on the fence.... ohhhh this could be great fun for you!! Good luck in whatever you decide to do with it!

    Kaza, thank you!
    Those are great ideas. I really love the cedar fence idea also.

    We have two or three old push moweres that need to be refurbished.

    I was thinking of taking one and refurbishing it to look new.

    Then I thought I would do this.......

    We have 4 acres, almost all needs to be mowed, I was going to erect a sign in the yard saying " HIS & HERS"

    The new looking mower I was going to put on the his side and the old worn out one on the her's side.

    Now, my wife keeps the house and helps out with the animals and garden. I do all the mowing and cutting and yard work.

    But I thought it would be funny to use these mowers to look like she did all the 4 acres with a push mower while I did nothing and my mower was pretty and new.

    Fun idea ozarkyehti.
    Well you can do what I did years ago. I just set one in my yard and now it is almost completely covered over in vines!

    I pushed it up a little grassy knoll next to a rose bush for now.

    Thanks for the ideas.
