....Did this Eclipes end up being a HAHN ECLIPES?

 

Yes, the Eclipse Mower Company in Prophettstown, Illinois, was purchased by Lloyd & Jack Hahn, and became Hahn-Eclipse. 

 

The Hahn-Eclipse Company was sold, but later bought back by Lloyd & Jack Hahn, and became known as Hahn, Inc. 

 

The Hahns later sold off the mower division to Graveley, who let the line die in the 1980's.
