Found this last night in someone's trash. Also, grabbed the bag for it. Cleaned it up and got it running this morning. I have never seen a PTO on a Briggs. Especially, a 3.5 horse with a 22 inch deck. I usually fix and sell the mowers I find in the trash, but I think I might keep this one. It's pretty neat. It has a split handle at the top. One is for the engine start and the other one is for the self propelled. I have heard of Noma, but I thought they were only in Canada? Is Noma the same as MTD? On the ID tag it says it was made in the USA.
