I am the new owner of this Shaw. Don't know anything about it right now. I think it has a briggs or Tec. engine with a gear reduction on it. It came with discs, cultivators and a gauge wheel. If anyone has any info please share. These pics are the ones I was sent by the PO. I'll get more tomorrow. I got it for $125 with a Speedex that has a snow plow.

For the price I paid for both I am extremely happy. The Speedex should run with little effort.

Not to bad, but it looks more like a run behind tractor. LOL I know my DB can drag you around as well.

Yeah. I need the governor parts hooked up because I can then run it at a lower speed without it stalling.

Not bad for having it for exactly 24hrs. The engine was almost new. I put a new head on it and cleaned it up. The cylinder had 10w-30 in it so everything was in good condition.

Lookin good but lil scary, no brakes? and I would probably opt for other than flip flops for safety. Maybe there's a nicely priced sulky(or better yet free) in your future also.
:good_job:

The pulleys are just a bit rusty from sitting, so the belt snags when the clutch is disengaged. Its strong though. Today I was just relaxing, and didn't think I was going to be doing anything heavy... Oops.

I plan to eventually make a sulky.

Does anyone know where I can get axle seals for a 3/4" (I think) Axle? (Are they universal?) My one is leaking. I plan to restore this to show condition even though it does not have the original engine. I believe I am going to get it powder coated.

If you can measure it, I am sure a store like NAPA can match it for you, also clean it really good, you may find a part number on it.
