That's the first one I think I've seen. Interesting little creature it is. What size engine is in that thing and...well I probably got more questions than I can type here. :thumbs:

They're very high priced for their size... highly sought after by collectors.

Terry you can check the specs at the bottom of this page.

Russel Miner's YardHand

Edit.... I want to add... I saw one at an antique flea market... all original, in spectacular shape... guy wanted $4000 for it. Said he'd take $3500... but that's still too many fleas for me to spend! Neat machines though.

They'd call OSHA on you, got to be a few safety violations on the older equipment. Remember, none of us are responsible for our own actions or safety. If we get hurt it's ALWAYS someone else's fault and we can SUE them!
