It reminds me of the LawnBoy in Maximum Overdrive

That is a really cool old sickle mower. I cannot say that I have ever seen one like that. It would definitely be a neat piece to clean up and restore. What does it have for an engine, a Briggs?

It's a MOTO-MOWER, These videos were taken at the RIO LINDA Ca. farmdays show. Note the tractor in the background on the first video is our 8-16 AVERY. In spite of it's apperence in the video the mower has a lot of oraginal patina, And was purchased from the orignal owners family.

It's not a Moto-Mower. It's actually a Milwaukee Power Lawn Mower with a Mar-Tan engine on it.

Here is a link to the thread on my mower. I would like to see better pictures of the carb on this mower in the video.
