    Today I had a lady stop me while cutting a yard and ask if I wanted a mower. I finished up the job and followed her back to a shed expecting to find an old run down murray or something along those lines. She pointed out this old reel mower which really sparked my interest!, so I brought it home. Now my question is do any of you know what brand it is? There is nothing on it accept for an Indian on the handle bars and gas tank. It also has the Pat. number on the handle. Any information on this mower will be greatly appreciated

    Looks like an interesting piece of equipment. You could really fix that thing up and use it as like a spare mower or something or as a collectable. I would agree on the Tecumseh and i know that most Tecumseh equipment is red, so.. :)

    I think that Flex Deck makes an attachment that runs off a rubberband for that model. :D

    It is very interesting (and old!) I dont think it is Tecumseh, beause it is not their Indian logo (the Indian head). The Indian on this mower is more of a cartoon. Im thinking the engine may be a Clinton, but im not to familiar with Clinton engines so I could be wrong. :confused:

    I may be an old Lawn Chief.

    Post the patent number and I can tell you who made it (or at least who patented it).

    I agree with Jason, It might be a Lawn Chief. The throttle looks like one that was on a Lawn Chief that I once owned.

    The patent numbers are: 8,881,887-2,791,875

    Also while I was looking over it again I found: King O' Lawn, INC
    South Gate, Calif

    stamped into the back of the handle bars. Could this be the manufacturer/brand?

    Thanks for all your help and information so far :)
