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!

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.

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.
