That is a cute looking little rascal. I know pictures can lie a bit but it looks like new. I do see a bit of rust. Really unusual.

That is a really cool little unit. Nice score as it looks barely used. I'll be in KC tomorrow. I'll be the one in the Camo GTTalk hat.

Sergeant, thanks for that ad. Love those 60's ads.

Yard-Man Made a Lot of weird Looking Mowers besides the One Pictured above I will try to Put the whole Booklet Into a PDF and Post it in the Manual Section They Made a 1 wheeled 18inch Reel Mower Which is rather funny to see Because it Looks Like someone actually Broke there Push Reel Mower:thumbs:

The unit is not running at this time but I will be working on it. It sat outside so the brushes of the motor are rusty and not making good contact. Also also the steering is stuck. Once I get it going I will let everybody know. Thanks for all the great comments. I also got the original manual in the mail today from Ebay it looks great.

I picked up the Yard-Man 600 front rotary deck Model 3081-1 (minus the deck) a couple of years ago and it is apart and some pieces are in the tank as I type.
