You cannot post pictures directly in the thread anymore due to abuse.
You must find a site to post the picture and then provide a link to it.

Try these

http://www.homestead.com/

http://www.tripod.lycos.com/build/welcome/build.html

http://geocities.yahoo.com/

The last two are free to a certain level and you will get a link to point people to.
You may also want to post the model number of the machine and engine here and at the web pages....Mike

Nice mower!

ringoryan8:

I use to see the odd mower similar to yours in the 60's but don't know what yours is.

The front casters almost look custom made.
Could this be a home built?

I was thinking mclane too, but I am not familiar with these older mowers, and can't give any definite answer. Some were quite similar to each other, so it may not be a mclane...never know. Have you tried any sites that specialize in antique mowers?

That might have been the company that serviced it at one time.

I'll have a look at it and see if I can assist. What model # particulars on the engine or such can you find?

I have seen Kato generators and heavy construction equipment but couldn't spot any mowers on a quick search.

If anyone can find it it will be Joe_F.

You might try plugging in what you know about the machine into google.com

Kato comes up with generators and the like. Perhaps you can contact them and they will tell you if it's the same company.
