i had a push mower with a hand crank, you flipped it open, wound up the spring, pushed the handle back in and pushed the starter button.
My first rider I used as a kid was a Swisher three wheeler. It had a 6 hp Tecumseh motor, with a crank wind starter. You would crank the handle back and forth to wind the coil spring in the starter, then push the release lever to spin the starter. I miss that old mower!
What I mowed with as a kid.

that is a cool little mower, I think I've seen pics of them before. Good memories
I still have my father's GT I grew up on and learn to use back it the late 70's, hope to restore it one day.
