    I was recently given a Sensation walk behind. I had never heard of these. I searched the internet and only found some history & a place to order blades.

    It has a new 16hp engine & runs good. I would like to fix it up and use it as a backup or maybe turn it into a sreader/sprayer.

    Is anyone familiar with this unit? I need belts and a few other parts.

    I didn't know they made them anymore.

    I am only familiar with their 21" mowers and they were built very HD.

    They were built by Gilson brothers manufacturing.
    I know they are old, but surely somone is familiar with them. They're a pretty well designed machine.

    Didn't they steer by pointing the handle bars?
    Their control systen was slick.
    I don't think they built the mid-size WB very long, just a few years in the mid-80's.

    Not being negative, just realistic that few on this forum know much about them. Even my local dealer who carried them is out of business.
