The hydraulic hand pump would wear you out.

The Western Tag makes me wonder? Western Tool & Stamping Company was in Des Moines, Iowa and built a lot of mowers in the 50's.

I am not sure but suspect they later became AMF?  I wonder if this was an early Experimental machine? made before they started building the AMF Dynamark, Massey and anyone else's machine that was willing to buy a Short run and put their label on it? I might add  used to be Dynamark machines  were the most common seen in this area.

 

When I worked at Farmhand you would be amazed at the bizzare machines that came out of the Experimental Engineering Shop that never made it to production line.  I had a front row seat working maintenence and sharing the same shop.with engineering.

There is a tractor that looks somewhat similar to this one in the current issue of Lawn & Garden Tractor magazine. According to the article, it was Crosley-built. Not saying this one is too, but it's the closest thing I've seen that resembles the style.

Could it be Speedex FG Hi Boy?  Here's shot of one on a clock by a Speedex Guy that makes decals and items.  it's on epay now.

 

Man, guess that didn't work too well. Sorry. Not sure how to click on it and make bigger.
