Anyone out there have any ideas who manufactured this old relic. I may be purchasing this soon. At least have a brand to research.

looks like its a jari, made by the year around corp. They are still in business and you should be able to get some parts for it.

Only Jari's I've seen was not tired, but rather ran on big rubber wrapped gear looking wheels and driven with little gears via locked in friction. So I am not much help on even older models, if that is one.

I don't know if I agree with Jari. Doesn't the engine on a Jari set with the crank front to back? Seems like there is a thread on Smokstak about one like this and it was determined that it wasn't a Jari.

Check out this thread. http://www.smokstak....ht=sickle mower This mower uses a Briggs engine instead of a Lauson but the wheels and drive look similar. I used to have a Jari with the lauson but the wheels were bigger diameter and the engine sat the opposite direction.

They seem to think it is a Toro Zipper. That one has the shroud in it. As you can see, this one is missing. Everything else looks identical. And this one has the Lauson engine on it. I love a challenge!
