I found some more pics of "Ideal Lawn Mowers". This one was made in Lansing, Mich. around 1915 but without riding sulky.

That is quite the lawnmower. It looks as though it was a bit ahead of its time. On the attachment that you posted it was interesting to read that the chairman of the board was R.E. Olds, the founder of the Oldsmobile brand of cars.
