I'm new here but I suppose you know, Standard ( the early Poynter company) built commercial walk behind mowers. The cutting blades are the same type as on the Bantam tractor, mower knife sections on a bell shaped stump jumper. The company came from somewhere, they didn't just jump into tractor production. How do I know, I've got one. I also have a two wheel sulky. Have you heard of the graveyard pushmower, with the large metal front wheel? The metal wheels leaned the grass away from the stone marker and forced it under the cutting deck. If you're way ahead of me, great!, if this is news, then there is more to learn.

I'm pretty sure they made a larger model with 3 cutting blades and maybe 10 horsepower. I think I accidently own the larger engine to one of these. It had the big pto gearbox on it. At the time, I did not know what it came off of. Come on guys, surely I'm not the only to own one or have seen one. I'd be interested in another for parts, I'm missing a spindle. I wonder if the spindle off a bantam tractor mower is the same. Anybody got half a mower for a bantam, or very rusted away?
