Fits on a pallet easy....is someone here close enough to grab it and drop it off to Fastenal? I just picked up my National from Fastenal today. Shipped for $145 from MD...weighed 189#.

Naaah! 4.5hp? I have push mowers with more guts than that. And the handlebars . . .    it looks like a mobility scooter.

In a horse power hungry country,..horse power sells.

 

My 9 hp Briggs will rivel a modern 12 hp ohv briggs twin and it's 50 years old.

 

My 6.5 hp Lister Petter will eat a 12 hp Briggs for dessert and go looking for more.

I do know the guy who is selling it.  Those are genuine Old Paths Equipment parts on board the Clinton.  :D

I'm sure the seller would do that for you.  Tell him Ben of the Clinton Parts sent you and after he throws rocks at you he might work with you.

Ummm! Looks like a big push mower with a steering wheel to me!   Wonder how they ever sold this junk when new!

I say "Mobility scooter" too.

The 4.5 Clintons have more balls than you think. Wheel Horse ran them on RJ's from '55-'58. Torquey little motors and smooth.
