    101 at Work


    Click each of the pictures below to see an unusual close-up of Robert Greene using his 1966 Landlord 101, and read his story below.

    My Dad purchased this used (2nd owner) in about '69. Over the years, it's had several different attachments, including blower and cab, blade, roto-tiller and so on.    

    I use it mostly for the mower, and for general yard work with a home made 2 wheel trailer, and, as the photos show, cutting wood.   The cordwood saw is a Sears - I have no information about it (would like some!)     I cut about 5 cords a year - use wood as secondary heat here in Maine.  

    Tractor itself is in pretty good shape - deck needs some work on the belt tension idler. Seems it must be an early model - doesn't have a fancy spring arrangement - just a bolt thru the deck that is rusted in place.    

    The mower regularly cuts about 2-3 acres of uneven, rocky "Lawn".   Go thru blades at a pretty good clip - one set lasts about 2 years!   Have replaced one of the mower spindle hubs - probably due for another as part of a winter overhaul.
