While surfing around this morning, I came across this pic in a German Gutbrod enthusiasts site.

Gutrbrod are the ones that built the MF ELF in 1963 for Massey Ferguson.

Looks like the same machine as these 3.

And here I thought you were about to explain how all 4 companies had an interlocking, overlapping board of directors, or perhaps the same design team was brought in by all 4 companies. Oh well.

Love to see the brochures.

My Moto-mowers have Richmond Indiana and Ingersoll Ontario on them. I just checked one of them. My understanding is that these were the head offices for Dura (moto-mower). Unconfirmed - the manufacturing may have been elsewhere.
