Looks like an Toro that a friend had on a horse farm in the 60's.

Yes, that is a Toro "Professional" reel mower which had a 76" cutting width.

 

The unit that Lucy is riding has the two wing reel units removed.

 

Early Toro Professionals were painted green, and had Toro engines.

 

Later models were painted dark red and had Wisconsin engines.
