Does anyone know why the 8237 has a yellow cowl? Just bought one and a R7070 tonight for $40!

The 8237 needs a recoil rope, and both need the fuel system flushed.

Because it was probably replaced....

The 8070, R7070(alum deck) and the 7071 and 8071(steel) came with yellow shrouds. They also came with black handles and yellow grips. They were called Promotional models...

The yellow shrouds are called the "Promotional" models. Now, that being said, nobody has yet to come up with what was being promoted with them. My R7070 is one of my favorite mowers though. Really just a 7268 in different colors and that stupid hex adjuster on the governor.

The shouds are switched! I thought something was wrong! the yellow shroud is on the 8237 and the R7070 has the black pushbar: switcharoo.
