    just bought this mower and was curious as to the company who makes it. I was told it was ExMark but I havent seen a green Exmark before. It looks very similar to a Bob-Cat but I cant find and that look as boxy as this one. Any ideas of Brand or age ?

    No clue. They all looked alike back in the day. And a lot of the parts were interchangeable. The paint color looks like a Bunton.

    You aren't kidding when you said they all looked alike back in the day...my god.

    I looked at some Lesco's, very similar but the Buntons have the open spindle deals on the cover so I think thats what it may be.

    I picked it up for $300.00 to mow my 2 acres.It was either a Box store push mower or this...

    Id rather be pulled around my yard than pushing something through it..lol. It has a newer 10 hp Tecumseh and no Number tags anywhere on the body of the mower. Its a beast

    thanks for the replies

    Can you get a few more angles of it and maybe higher resolution? Might be a Bobcat. Some of theirs had those single sided front wheel spindles like that.

    One thing to really look at is that deck cover with those raised openings for the spindles. You dont see that often. If they are open its usually just a hole like the Bunton picture in this thread. Those raised things usually had caps on them for a little more protection.

    I dont think its an exmark or a lesco. I dont think lesco made any mowers that would look like that. Pretty close to a bunton aside from the handle bars and deck cover. The gearbox and handle bar design makes me think bobcat.

    It could also just be pieced together from different brands and painted green.

    The body of the deck resembles the Exmark Metro
