Found a swisher ride king in Aumann Auctions online fall consignment auction ending in a couple weeks. Has 8 hp Tecumseh motor and the wheel is angled, looks old but not sure if it's worth anything. Anybody know anything on these?

That one there is actually fairly new, 2002 or newer, I think. The front tire looks like it's wrong, looks too small.

They are great for small, FLAT yards with lots of obstacles. It has a 32" cut, and a two speed transmission. It is technically a zero turn. You turn the front tire with the steering wheel 180* to go backwards. It takes getting used to, but it is a very efficient mower.

After looking at all the pics, the front tire is factory. The lettering and striping on the hood may not be, I have never seen that before. I doubt they would intentionally misspell their name.

They were made in warrensburg Missouri. I don't believe they are making them anymore. The plant is about 30 minutes away from me.
