I think I'm spelling the name right. Does anyone here own one? Does anyone here know the company's history? Thanks.

I recently found one, badged as an Allis Chalmers, and did some digging/emailing with other collectors of Hahn machines.  Here is a nice little site with some history and pics

And the facebook page for collectors...

My AC Mow Bee, made by Hahn.  She's a '68.

I remember when Hahn was still alive and well in Evansville....only 45 miles from me!

A hardware store sold many of them here in town.

Mostly the push/self propelled mowers, but a few riders.

 

I forgot about the tillers! Seen a few of those too!

There was a write up about them in LAGC magazine in the Jan-Feb issue. They made riders, push mowers, tillers, snow blowers and sprayers. They also made mowers for other brands I have a rear engine Ford rider that was made by them.

I have parts manuals for most of the Eclipse, then Hahn-Eclipse, then Hahn mowers, riders and tractors.

 

If anyone needs info, let me know, and I'll try to help.

When we were out at the Evansville show a couple years ago now there was a nice display someone there had with a bunch of Hahn Outdoor Power Equipment. Here are some of the pics that we took.

George, if I remember right, those all belong to 2 brothers and another friend of theirs. They had about every model made if I'm thinking right. A very nice collection and display !! That was right down the hill from were we got up on someone's RV roof for some photos !! :smilewink:
