    Lawn tractors made now automatically disengage the blades when backing up. That didn't happen in that case, so safety switches were of no use. Funny I can't seem to find any studies that show fewer accidents since adding all the switches and blade brakes. Sure has upped the price though.

    Never the less I think it is a old Bunton from the 60's

    it reminds me of an Old Bobcat mower.

    What is it do you actually know?

    I only did a reverse image search on Google and it all came up at Atco. And as we all know...the internet never lies... :drinkup:

    haha! Hey guys... I actually bought a Bunton mower of an older gentleman with a small company a couple years ago and it looked almost exactly like this one..... It had a grass catcher though and the wheel adjustment was different but this mower ruled! It was not self propelled(obviously) but boy did that baby cruise... The weight of it was just perfectly balanced. It felt like I wasn't even pushing it!
