Pretty neat and odd mower Maynard. Did you look at the steering. It looks like you are sitting on a caster that pivots with the steering input. That would be too strange to drive!

... Cute little mower blades on it.


I have an old Jake push rotary mower with that style blade on it. It's the best cutting mower I've ever seen/had.

It has 4 triangular blades that are bolted to the edge of the disk. There are also two 'deflectors' 180* apart on the top to give uplift/air flow. Those blades are almost razor sharp, and with 4 of them, they will go through grass as high as you can push the mower through. I've gone though 4' high timothy. If you can get it under the mower it WILL cut it.

In regular grass, it will throw the clippings from here to 1/2 way to Pittsburgh :D :D :D

Jake had to quit using them because of Fed regulations regarding how soon the blades would stop after the engine is shut down.

Mine is an 18" with the 321 2.5 hp 2 stroke, and when I shut it off, the inertia/flywheel effect will keep the blade/engine spinning for close to 10 seconds.

Here's a link with a pic of the underside of one that is a bit older than mine...however the disk/blades are the same:
