Does anyone have or know where I can find one of these pictured? It is a Savage Arms mower, model 91-T and is two tone green. The same machine could have been made, but tan and green in color, by Worcester Lawn Mower Co. which was an affiliate of Savage Arms. I need this machine to complete my collection. There is a finders fee for any info that leads to a purchase.

I saw the last post you had. I did some looking and there isn't much out there especially on the model you want info on. Maybe try calling Savage arms and see what they can tell you. You never know there just might be something in their archives. May need to get someone there that really wants to know about the companies past and things associated with them.         Good Luck.     Let us know.                   Roger.

I bet with 4.00 x 4.80-8 ags and your pockets full of fishin' sinkers, she'd pull two cement blocks fidy feet! HA! Actually, I saw a Savage rider on craigslist and almost bought it. It was a boxy looking model, but interesting to say the least.

Hey Classic guy, I think you saw this machine on CL. If so, you should have bought it. They are a real classic and hard to find. I have two.

Roger,  Thanks for the info but I have already tried to contact Savage Arms which is only 6 miles from here.  They are now a completely new organization and know absolutely nothing about the archives. I was extremely lucky to find an old historian of Savage Arms and he was very helpful with info and pics for my collection.

 

Thanks again and lets keep in touch,

Dave

Is there a post out there on your Savage machines?  I'd be quite interested to see them and learn a bit about them.  I did not know Savage dabbled in mowers.

That's the one, Savageman. I've got my hands full with the tractors I have now, otherwise I would have picked it up. I always had an interest in the early mowers. I would have pointed you in the direction of the one I saw for sale, but I'm new to this forum and didn't know you collected them. If I do happen to run across one, I'll be sure to let you know.

I would appreciate that. Anything Savage related. Riders, power reels, push reels, trimmers, or rotary.
You won't believe the pulley system on this rider.

You got it, Dave. It's amazing what's still laying around out there.

Taintedmrgreen, If you get LAGTMag look up Sept/Oct 2013. You will see the rider featured in Oddball & Misfits. Check out the pulley system. Very unusual. Savage Arms started making mowers in the early 50s. After WW2 gun sales dropped off so they bought out Worcester Lawn Mower and started their own line. I believe they stopped making mowers around 1964.
