    I am wondering if anyone can help me identify and old mower. I will try and post some pics but for now I will give a description. The mower is a three wheel mower with a 72" out front deck. It has been repainted, but from some scrapes it appears as though the original color is yellow. It has a Kohler vertical twin and appears to be at least 25 hp. There is no marking under the seat, but there is a plate by the left drive wheel as you look at the mower. Also there is a similar plate on the right hand side of the deck. This mower runs good, but is in need of some bushings and other parts to get the cut right. I would like to use this mower as back-up for my 60" Z and also on a school campus I maintain. Any help would be appreciated, and I will try to post some pics.

    Steering wheel or twin sticks ??
    Could be a old Hustler......Old ones were red or yellow
    Another older yellow front mount would be Howard price, they have steering wheels.
    Does it look like this at all or a little newer in yellow ?

    Mowerconsultant,
    Our city still uses one of those hustler 3 wheelers for mowing medians. Man that mower is used and abused. Looks to have a good 5k hours on it still running of course. Also trugreen uses husler riders here., Although there is no dealer around me hustler looks very tough and dependable.
