I got this mower for a good price, but I don't know what it came from originally. Got a plan to make a front mount for a Suburban out it, but thought I better find out its history before I damaged something on an item that might be bettr off on the right tractor.

Looks to be WH, might be worth something...
What measurement on the cutter?
I saw one at the show this wknd and it had a box like that.

I think he said it was made by Haban?

the paint color seems original and is an orange like a Simplicity or Ariens  .  The cutting part of the bar is 36", its 51" over all. Im sure it attached to something else. Funny part is there is no pivot like a normal mower, just lies flat out the right side. The drive pulley is only about 2" and kind of small for a mower. there is a zerk built into the pulley, so im sure it was supposed to be there.  The castings all are 700 numbers, such as 701, 703,etc.  Not sure if it was a mid mount, rear mount or front mount unit yet. Might even be off some walking tractor, from the 30's or 40's.

well I played with it tonite and got the bar freed up.  the small pulley out on the end of the gear box is a clutch. There's a place for a 5/16th rod to go and as you turn it, it opens the pulley or closes it up. Seems like I've seen this type of clutch setup before. I thought it was on a jake, but couldn't find any pictures to verify that.  The plate on the rear of the gear box is aluminum.  Almost positive that its for a walking tractor, due to the lack of a folding pivot. had to be a tractor of fair size to run a 3' mower. I would think the side draft would kill you. Out on the final end there looks to be a place for a shoe to bolt on, to keep the end out of the ground. Aren't mystery attachments fun!!
