I picked this up in a group of little mini mowers.  Can't seem to find a single thing on it.  Seems to have a Tecumseh V50.  I think this is one of the first little oddballs I have found that matches about nothing on line.  Any ideas?  I have seem similar little Jacobsens, but no with the super cool hood option.

I ran the serial and model number on the Jacobsen search site, and it appears to be a 1968.  I haven't had time to look it over to see what all is going on with it.  The steering is strange, solid steel wheel that pivots side to side.

Here are two of the Jacobsens stable mates I snatched up with it.  These things are too small to fend for themselves, so I had to take all three for there own safety.

Oh, the best part, 4 of these things will fit in an 8ft truck bed if you leave the tailgate down.
