Ok so I have a lot of time on my hands these days and I use it to hit the auctions and yard sales etc.  I am always looking for something I can make some money on or something I just like.  Well this is what came home with me today.  A wondered if any of you guys know anything about this old machine. I am not sure just what I will do with it but it was to cool to just leave it there.  The rope thing isn't working but it did feel like it might have some compression when I turned the blade on it.  It seems it's a two stroke of some kind.  Pretty good shape for as old as it looks.

Neat looking old mower.  Does it mulch or where is the discharge?

It has a discharge chute right behind the right front wheel.   But it looks like it would blow a lot of the grass on the backside of the wheel.  I am not sure what is going on with that.

Gotcha. I went back and looked at the pic again and see where it is located.

That's a cool little mower.

 

I will have to remember you when I get ready to clean out, I have some old walk behind mowers/tractors I was story from someone and now I think I inherited them.

 

What area was the auction at?

Littledeere is right, that's a Clinton.  Panther series, most likely 400 series.  It has a Schnacke recoil: those things were high dollar back in the day.

 

PM me and I can send you the IPL for it and you can figure out what's wrong with it.

That's a sweet little mower. I wonder how old it is and if it will take much work to get it running again.

Yes let me know.  I am always looking for old "stuff'.      It was in Oxford

Cool pusher, glad you saved her.

The Clinton engines are intriguing, they do have a decent online following.
This guy has a site that can help you ID it. He also has some info on them, brochures and whatnot.

Here is a mechanics manual I found that ?(may?) cover yours

Larry Rarus is the man behind both of those websites.  He is a great guy with lots of knowledge on Clinton.
