Said aways ago that when i could i'd unbury this Machine & show some pic's of it , it was given to me by the 2nd eldest Brother 18 months ago , Wheel Motor vehicle Automotive tire Tire Wood
Automotive tire Motor vehicle Font Bumper Gas
The year i'm thinking is 60's but haven't found a plate yet to no

stowed away in Dads shed with all the other junk that i have been cleaning up for more room Wheel Saw Concrete saw Chainsaw Yellow
Wheel Automotive tire Tire Motor vehicle Tread


Wheel Tire Automotive tire Tread Wood
It is a single speed forward reverse belt clutch

i have to clean it up a bit 1st then see if dad killed the engine that's on it , that is a replacement engine i put on it yrs ago 5 HP briggs ,

the original was a 5 HP briggs too but the old White colour engine 60's 70's type which i do have a few of from 5 HP to 8 HP , so later i might set 1 of those on it to keep it more authentic

the cutter deck just bolts direct to the chassis & no weight adjustment , the wheel set across centre to centre is 18 "& the from centre front to back wheel is 2-10' long

but forgot to check wheel size but 3 ' front & 6' back wheels i think , solid rubber tires , straight axle , the hood is fixed mount but i love the old steel seat original on it

i have to do some research on where & who made it , i'm thinking Greenfield or Rover as its got the same style g/box in it as early Rover but not sure

I wonder what the piece of steel on the hood was for ? That's some hitch that was welded on ! Are you going to restore it ?

thinking it could be made over there too ( name change for sale reasons ), now that i have saw that tree mower which is very similar to mine .

the steel bracket on the hood is the rear hitch for the machine , Dad removed it and made his own hitch for it

Since it is a standard unit cept the engine & hitch , i will eventually restore it best i can , but geese i like the Red on the 1

ACmowerguy posted ^^ there , looks neat

to sit on it i am surprised that i'm reasonably comfortable on it and i'm 6'1"

Update

Thank you all for the info as it is by Mustang it's been stowed away for about 10 yrs that i know of & not used much for 20 yrs before that , has the same g/box as the Rover Colt 8 HP rear engine rider here in Australia and i got 4 g/boxes on hand , condition of them?? no clue

i remember it being used by the brother & me back then mowing his yard when i boarded with him, but no clue where he got it from

i will try to find out from him though , as i'm nosy
