Near as i can determine the rider is a 4 hp model from 1960. 
Might have to put some Farmall decals on it!

With the little legs that cant reach the footrests, make sure they are mindful of the chain and exhaust.

:thumbs: on another job well done. It's a great looking rider.

I was going to suggest bolting some expanded metal in the bottom

of the deck. Then I saw the pictures. Scrap that idea. You can't be

drilling holes in that beauty.

If I rememeber correctly, those riders did not have a brake.  ....So, if little ones are riding it, be cautious at slopes/hills!

This unit has a brake pad that engages the transmissson pulley and functions as a brake, but only when in gear.  We've come a long way since "1960 modern technology"  :thumbs:   Rick

I've been told that there is a blade eliminator kit that installs on these little engines.   but I haven't been able to locate one yet.   Rick
