    If I had time (and it was free of course) That would be a simple tear down, sandblast and spray. But a 12 HP briggs on there and it would be a neat lookin showpiece.

    I can say I own one of the few remaining Bush HoG weed cutting lawn tractor brush cutter or whatever the guy called this thing!!

    I wonder what that engine does to the operator's rear end with the exhaust pointed right at it? Probably why the seat cushion is about gone on the left rear side. Got to be some ride with the straight exhaust to boot.
    By the way, I notice that G&S says that it is a Jacobsen from the 70s. I believe those mowers had a drive system similar to the Snapper with the rubber disc running on a wheel. How in the world could an engine that big operate one of those systems?

    Those Snapper drive systems aren't bad. We have an old Snapper, and you can pop wheelies pretty good!
