I second the above comment!

Looks very easy to burn yourself with the motor being in the middle like that. Probably hot to be sitting on top of an engine like that, too.

I love looking at these old mowers that are still in great condition. No idea why the engineers would put an engine in that position though.

Maybe to keep the "fun parts" warm on those cool fall mowing mornings.

Looks like a old Swisher mower. Yep, it is. I last saw one in a old guy's shed back in 89. Very rare mower.

So, with this mower and K-Mart weed whacker, do you think I'd be set? What about the chick situation?
