I'm not going to do anything with this old walk behind, got it in a package deal with some other stuff.

I do not know much about it, from my research looks to be made in '58-60. I have only seen one other picture on the net even similar to this mower ( it does kind of look like a Toro Whirlwind from that era, but not the same). I do have a copy of the patent that was applied for in 1954 and approved in 1958. It looks all original down to the leather drive belt. I have not done anything with it other than move it around, and it's one heavy beast.

Has a Wisconsin motor.

asking $100, I'm about 25 miles north of Cincy.

That is cool.  Is that considered a brush-cutter or a mower?  What's the cutting path?

Uhm I am not sure. I think the deck is maybe 30", 32"??? I honestly have never measured it or paid attention to the underneath. I'll have to check when I get home.

That's a helluva bumper on the front.  I would bet that's for knocking down some heavy stuff.

I believe the Model 31 was named for a 31" cut, and the Model 24 was named for a 24" cut.

 

An "R" suffix denoted the mower was equipped with reverse.

The deck measured just a tad over 30" across so if blade rides close, it's a 30" cut.

I tried to get a pic of the underneath. This is a rear discharge, never paid attn to it. Has a crazy blade, 1/4" flat bar with cutting tips bolted to the ends.
