I bought this thinking it was Wheel Horse but the WH guys don't think it is. Does anyone know what it fits?

Can you tell if Haban brand?  Power KIng used those, yet the mounts for them can be made to fit other brands of tractors and not interchange also.  Has the orange like Economy P/K's  but the drive seems to be turned 90* for that.  It would appear the drive comes off the side of tractor, like in-line with the engine pulleys. KInda like Speedex does with mowers on their stuff. I was kinda thinking Speedex too, and with color again.  Does seem like a pretty short unit, so was made for smaller frame tractors I would say. Go look at the Haban sight, which is still supposed to be on-line somewhere and see if you can get some pictures or parts diagrams for one, and compare. I might have pix on my PK parts package, but would take awhile to look. Might try digging around more for tags or stampings to see if manufacturer name still on it somewhere.

I have the same mower. I picked it up a couple yrs ago at a show. So far no one new what its off of. Looks like this one has a few more parts than mine. Since its a flat out bar with no hinge, I figured it went to a walk-behind tractor. I think mine is 30 some inches wide in the cutting part. Like to see some more picture of the tin shield and the mount bars.

Makes sense to be a 2 wheel attach with drive running that way and didn't notice it didnt fold. Would think one would want to fold on a tractor. Many are driven in middle on those, but maybe not all??

Almost have to be for a 2 wheeler, non folding and short. In the second pic, the two pieces of roundstock should be a clue?

yes now that I know what part of the mount looks like I can start looking at tractors with front hook ups. I thinking that a Frasier tiller or one of its ancestor's looks good. That plate under the drive area looks to be aluminum and kind of like a big sled. I also am missing the weed rod at the end of the bar.
