Hahn Eclipse mowers were made in Evansville Indiana (45 mile from me).

We had a hardware store in town that sold them, and I remember an old fellow having one f these old self propelled units.

He used it all the time and kept it in it condition.

Looks like a mighty fine mower you found!

I can provide paperwork & info for your mower.  ...We sold many through my Dad's shop.

 

Those Hahn Power-Pro's were the best mowers to use on a slope.  ....Their rear-wheel drive was the best climber of any brand available at the time.  ...The low front profile allowed them to trim under fences & shrubs.

 

I am not at home, but send me a reminder later this week, and I can send brochures & parts list.  ....I just need the model & series number from the black & silver tag on the mower.

Does your blade have only the "D" hole in the center or does your blade have 3 holes ?

just got one of these, almost identical. 

Mine says "Pow-R-pro 22" on it, I think its a bit newer than the one that started this thread, according to the code number on the Briggs the engine is from 03/1980. 

It has the same style handlebars as in the pic above but 2 levers.... one is a mechanical (belt tightener) blade engage lever, the other is for the self propelled. 

I can't get the one screw for the belt guard ahead of the engine to budge so I'm not 100% positive on these numbers as I was looking at them from off to the side, but although the stickers say "Hahn Eclipse"  the tag says it's really a Gravely?   the numbers are (from best I can tell) Series 834  Model IH3122 Serial 1637043  These numbers make any sense to anyone? 

 

Got it from a 70-ish year old guy on CL, got them from his Dad, who claimed these were "the best mowers".... the seller had used the other one, IDK if he may still have it around but his Dad gave him this one, he could never get it running..... it has a Magnetron coil on it so someone has worked on it along the way.  I had to put gas in it and unhook the seized throttle cable and it started right up. Whole lotta work there.  Wow.   Oh and I replaced the spark plug. (but it had spark with the old one)  

the only other issue is that it don't want to pull backwards, the back wheels bind up going backwards. but the self propel mechanism works great, blade is rusty but don't look that old at all, (not many hours on it).    Magnesium deck, about 1/2 full of probably 25+ yo buildup still stuck to the bottom, and being as how the OP says he paid $5 I overpaid for this one by 5x that amount....  it was on CL as being for "parts"    this one is going back into service....   might want to find a new control for it (the throttle bellcrank thing that bolts on via the top 3 head bolts) and if I cant free up the throttle cable I'll have to see if I have any "bulk roll" left anymore and make a new one....   but still.... sold as "non running/ for parts"  this seems like one of the better running "non runners" I have seen in a while. 

 

got 1 question, see this a bunch these days...… the guy happened to call me back while I was headed to pick up my wife from work, said he'd meet me in the next town between his town and where my wife works.... but why do people with full size pickups need a trailer to haul just a 22" mower???? We took it out of his trailer and put it right into the bed on my truck... I don't need no trailer just for that.....  not worth the time to hook up a trailer just for that... jeez.  he had a cab and 1/2 full size Chevy 1500,  around a 2008-10ish.

Two black plastic levers for the wheel drive and blade clutch?  ....Be careful, they break easily.

 

The cable casings are probably plastic lined.  ...The linings would often melt and seize the inner cable.  ....Use plain (unlined) casing for the throttle.

 

I believe you will find the Model to be IHS-122.  ...Gravely bought the Hahn line of walking mowers in 1978.  ...They continued manufacturing the mowers until 1982.

 

These mowers were GREAT, and we sold many of them. ....This design started around 1964 or 1965.  ...Early models had a 3.5hp Tecumseh, but had 3.5hp B&S engines starting around 1966. ....The rear wheel drive with the engine set-back made these mowers the best for climbing steep slopes. ....The belt-driven blade created a low front profile which made them great for trimming under fences or shrubbery.

 

....The original screws holding the belt cover to the deck were self-tapping screws, and would often seize in the deck.  ....If you are lucky enough to remove it, tap the deck for machine screws.

 

There are over-running clutches in the rear wheels.  ....These allow the rear wheels to roll forward freely, but lock when pulled backwards.  ....If there is not enough slack in the wheel drive cable, the mower will not pull backwards because the drive belt is dragging on the rear pulley.  ....When adjusted properly, the mower will pull backwards (wheel drive lever released) and the belt will be slack, allowing the rear pulley to turn.  ....The sheet-metal guard over the belt acts as a belt guide to push down on the top of the belt, forcing the slack to be at the rear pulley.  ....The guard should not touch the belt while the drive is engaged.

 

I probably have a parts list and other info for this mower, if you need it.  ...Just send me a PM.
