I'm trying to identify this mower for a friend of mine.

Any information could help. I believe it is a briggs and stratton engine.

Other than that, I have no idea what brand / model it could be. (Or year)

Here is a picture.



Any ideas as to what it is?

I have a RUGG mower from the 50s,early 60s. The only similarity is your sitting nearly on the engine. lol
Made me think of that,,but that tube frame ,on yours,is completely different. So I don't have a clue!!! lol

Can you post a pic of the carb side of the engine? I don't know my old riders very well, but some of the older Sears units were built like this. Looks like it may have a Lauson engine on it

I'm still not sure what it is, I will try to get more pictures as soon as possible.

I had a similar looking 1960 Sears Craftsman one like that,but the rear wheels were ouside the frame,not inside it...had the same handlebars,but the front axle was covered up by a sheet metal stamping...that one is probably some other brand...maybe Rugg,Huffy,or some department store "special" they sold at places like Western Auto,etc...

We had a similar Craftsman mower back then. Is the shift lever under the seat?. Ours was a four Horsepower, I think. I remember you had to crank the recoil starter to wind it up, then flip a switch to release it.

That rider was made by Eska. Eska was known for outboard motors up to about 9.9 hp.All Eska's came with a Tecumseh power head including the Sears Gamefisher also made by Eska. Im not sure of the mfg date on that one but Eska was the only rider mower that resembles a coastal mine sweeper boat!

On your engine shroud there will be 3 sets of numbers die stamped into the metal. One says Model the second says type and third says code. The first 2 digits of the code # indicate year of engine mfg. The second two digits indicate the month of engine mfg then after that is the day then the last two digits indicate the assy line it was made on. This formula is for all Briggs engines
