    You can't deny the condition of the unit. It would make a great collectors piece. For that price you couldn't go wrong. I never knew they made such a product back in the 80's.

    It's a hoax..even if the 2 pieces were mfg. for Sears they were never intended to be put together!

    Lawn-boy made one like that back in the mid to late 50's. Called the "lawn-Boy Loafer" Only lawn-boy's had it's own engine on it and could be used for other things too... But same principal, it hitched to a 21" mower (handle removed) and you used it to drive the mower around while you sat. Tehe craftsman model looks like th real deal, not modified or anything. Also looks like it's totally worthless... Judging by the fact that thing is brand new looking and it's prolly 25 years old, I'd say it never really functioned as intended.

    Ya know, I keep looking at this thing and thinking that it must have been a real pain in the butt to turn it while sitting. I mean... how did you turn it without lifting it up in the front and missing all the grass?

    And, I wonder if these old designs is what brought about the sit down sulkies that there are today like the one from Exmark (I only use them as an example, as I am not aware of other brands like that)
