Default Maytag 72 with air cleaner / Filter

Does anyone know the story behind these 72 engines with the straight up air cleaners? I have only seen 4 of them and two have been recently on ebay. The tank type has been the same so Iím thinking they were all from the same equipment??

I have one similar to that, although my air pipe appears to be tube bent, and not an ell as pictured. I've often wondered about it's original intent. Possibly generator/charger? Std. tank on it although.

I'm sure a mower is probably true but these are setup as horizontal shaft and has the kick start on it. It's got to be a cool looking mower. Hopefully someone has a picture or an old add with a picture?????

Dennis,
I have a lawnmower with Maytag 72 engine that had a filter/gas valve similar to those. I sold it about 15 years ago and bought it back about 6 years ago. The air filter was gone and I have been looking for one. Would you sell one of those?
