Welcome to the forum.
I had the same thought as Jimbobbillyray when I first saw the photo. Looks like the Swisher Big Mow. Thanks for the Photo's. Going to have to look at them again. Neat little mower!

You just have to restore that mower. It is sooooo blasted neat.
If you don't I'm going to come and steal it from you!:love:
