Kind of a neat little carry all there. Centrifugal clutch on a kohler engine. Shouldn't be too hard to fix up. What are the condition of the rams?

I never saw anything like it--excepting maybe a Cushman,but they weren't articulated...
I would guess its a Jacobsen,going by the color,they made some really strange things for golf course maintenence,and they usually had Kohlers for engines in them..

That is a very cool little machine.
Looks like it might be hydraulically driven.
It looks like a couple hoses running to the rear.

It says it came from a cemetery right on the bed.

It's a Pug!

Originally manufactured in Bruce, WI by Figura Enterprises. Bill Figura (distant cousin) sold out to a group in Mississippi (I think) - Feterl, who've been bought out by Buhler Industries.

Original units were built from Ford 9" rear ends, powered by a small gas engine, fiberglass body, and were 4x4 articulating. Some parts are still available. More available on a Google search.

I love it!!! Owen, ya gotta get that thing. As I'm too far away to get it myself!!! Also after you get it , ya gotta do a build thread!!

How about i just do a rebuild thread on my bolens groundskeeper because unless i sell most of my other tractors so i am out of the hole i am not buying that one no matter how much i would like to UNLESS i stopped again and the price was right. Or because my dad just bought a new toy (excavator) he will let me buy a new toy!!

It ultimately turned into the Land Pride Gondo. I used to sell them at my dealership. Dynamite machines. I wish I would have kept one.

WOW!! That's a huge differential for a little Kohler to turn! It needs something like a 351 Clevland in it! It sure is a neat looking machine! I'm looking forward to more pictures and would love to watch the progress on this machine! :thThumbsU Great find!


And.. BTW.. What $$$ did it set ya back?? :dunno:
