I admit, I'm not a walk behind guy.  A buddy of mine bought this.  He isn't a walk behind guy either.  I was wondering if some of the experts here could give us some insight as to what this is?  It has a Sears branded Briggs on it.  He can't find any info (tags, etc.) on the machine itself.  Thoughts?  Thanks.

The thing is built like a tank.  As far as I can tell, it's pretty complete.  The two-speed pulley has been replaced on the engine.

That is the small Howard rotivator. I can't remember what they called it. I think the ones that were imported into the country originally used a JAP engine.

I didn't know what it was but the weird design and the color screamed Howard. 

Thanx Doug for confirmin' my suspicions.

Great!  Thanks for the help.  It's a Howard Bantam according to the pics Google found.  Looking at the pics, I saw a few different engines on them.  Is it possible that one is original?
