lol  that is the rear part, it is the seat section for behind the machine itself. the seat part there has a little hitch pole in front of it , bit like articulated steer . over here in aussie we had some walk behind slasher mowers with a rear hitch dicki seat attachment for them. the councils used to use them yrs ago to mow the public parks & such witch hitched with a pin only

Wish I had pictures of me riding one like that from back in the 60s. My dad and uncle used to care take two large cemeteries. They would dig graves and mow and trim the grass there. They had Snapping Turtle walk behind mowers with rollers that you would stand or sit  on behind the mower. I really liked riding because those seat were more comfortable than standing on platform or steps on the roller. thanks for sharing.                                                                         Roger

A little off topic but not really. I built a roller using the top roller from an old AC round hay baler. Those were called cigar rollers among other names. The top roller is about 38" long and 16" diameter and has a large round shaft running through it and protruding out about 3" on both ends. Easy to used a heavy U bolt and angle iron for the hook up. Drilled a hole in the end near the edge and threaded it to fit a 1/4" plug. Add what ever amount of water you need for the weight and your set to go. Keep the U bolt greased and little to no friction as you have round bolt riding on round shaft. Makes a nice cheep smooth lawn or ground roller and will last a lot longer than those plastic one the stores sell for $100 or more. If you fill it with water, don't plan to move it much by hand. That sucker is heavy !

P9220015.JPG how Machines deteriorate when there left out in the weather for some 6 odd yrs ' i was so disappointed when i got my walk behind slasher mower out from up back , most of the out paint has lifted off the machine & what never has faded dramatically ............in other words it is a mess, 1 good part was the carbie was still spotless & the spark was good enough to weld with
