Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Sunbeam 1957 lightweight twin blade lawn mower. It is in great working condition. I am just curious what the value is on this model. I see that the vinage advertisement is worth 25 dollars. gota believe the mower is worth more than the ad. Can anyone give me an idea on how to find the value?

I'd say a couple hundred if in working condition, maybe more since it's very old and rare.

I have the Black SpiderXT and I'm just curious where I can buy new blades for it or propeller not sure the proper terminology b


Take the old blades to a shop where they sell lawn mowers and mower parts and they should be able to match them or tell you where to get them. I have done that a lot since all mowers have different types of blades.

Just trying to get the value of a 1957 sunbeam lightweight twin blade lawn mower


The value will depend on many different factors. Physical condition, operating condition, market demand, etc. With no more than what you posted here the only value you could get would be scrap value.
I don't think that anyone would be able to give a fair estimate of its value without seeing it, hearing it run, seeing it in operation, I know I couldn't.
You would also have to find someone who is specifically into collecting that type of tractor.
There are a lot of loosely knit clubs around but most of them collect the old Gravely. Sears. Wheel Horse etc.
You could possibly go onto Yahoo Groups and do a search for "Sunbeam Lawnmower clubs" or maybe do a Google search for the same and see what you come up with. You could also check around your local repair shops to see in any one there has an interest or if there are any lawnmower racers in your area. It is a pretty popular sport in some areas.
These are just my thoughts but I hope it gives you some insight since I see your request is over a month old

Need diagram to replace blade belt for 19hp twin turbo cool mower


You have to post the model number from under seat. Not all Craftsman decks are the same. There are 38", 42", 46" w/3 blades, 46" w/ 2 blades, 52", etc.. Better yet, Get the model number under the seat (starts with 917) and go to... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Then enter the model #, hit search, then scroll down to Browse Subcomponent List and click on Mower Deck. There's your diagram.

My deck cuts shoter on the rt,ie uneven


Check your tire pressures:
10 psi. for rear tires.
14 psi. for the front.

Note that according to MTD:
Making sharp right hand turns. Twin-blade mower decks are designed with the discharge on the right side and two side-by-side blades. The side-by-side twin blade decks have the left hand blade positioned slightly forward and in front of the right blade. This provides cutting overlap when traveling in a straight line. As a result, the tractor should mainly operated making primarily left hand turns when cutting. During left turns this cutting overlap is maintained. If turning right when, it is possible to negate this overlap and leave an uncut strip.

1957 Sunbeam Twin-Blade electric lawn mower shaft...
Posted by mower man on Jun 08, 2008
I have a late 50's series Sunbeam twin-blade electric lawn mower that I use regularly. The shaft bushing(s) on the left blade has worn out, and there's too much play for me to run it w/o ruining the machine.
It appears that the belt-run cog inside the housing is the part that is supposed to come off of the shaft to get to the bushings, but instead of a cotter pin or other fastener holding the cog in place, it looks like a rolled metal pin that may have been pressed in place.
How do I replace the shaft bushings so I can keep using this great vintage appliance!? I found a website that supplies parts for this model year, but no schematics or user manuals. Thanks!


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. This website is for vacuums and you would need to contact a local lawn mower shop in the yellow pages, they are amazing about the way they can fix old lawnmowers.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.
